Was Becker a Spec5? I believe he was "acting jack" tank commander of my tank, #31 I think, of M Company. Dickie was the gunner but I can't remember the loader's name. After a couple of months, we got a new shake and bake 2nd luey to break-in while Hoensfel.
I was put into Beckers room on my first night at Pond. That night, a serious fight broke out between friends (juicers?) that had been drinking heavily in the Berg. One put his fist thru the wire reinforced window in the door to a crew room. Sacared me shitless, wondering what the hell I got myself into.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
