Cpt. Barber,

I'm working to get in contact with as many memberso of 1/2 ACR from 1969 to 1972.  Please forward any emails you have and maybe together we can build a good contact file.  So good to see you two last summer.  Thanks for the nice BOQ and hospitality.  Hope to see you again soon.  Planning an Alaska cruise next July, so will call then at least.

Take care...be well. Love you folks!

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Ralph.

Are you any relation to all the Barbers who lived around Wilkeson, South Prairie, and Lower Burnett, Washington from the late 1800's to the 1980's? They even had a Barberville in the area for awhile. Some of my fondest memories are from that area. My uncle, Ken Barber, lived on a 680 acre farm outside Wilkeson that his mom and dad homesteaded. His uncle, Bob Barber, had another 1000 or so acres near Lower Burnett.

Greetings Captain Barber. Terry Smith spec 4 cook, 1970. Bindlach, Rotz, Widen, Gates border camps. Are you the same Captain that flew in Gliders to maintain your flight status? if so I remember and served under your command. You were a good commander. Welcome to the Dragoon.

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.
