"That's right, Dave, then there were the honey wagons! No wonder the Bavarians pride themselves in their awesome produce and no wonder they never eat the skins on their potatoes!"

Bro Lu!! So great to hear from you after all these years. I still have the orange blanket you gave me before you rotated. I took Mario & his wife Cindy home to Palacious, Tx when he got out. I last visited Bill Cannon in Dallas, Tx, and Jeff Neis lives in Vancouver, Wa, last time we have talked on the phone. It has been years since we have made contact.

Toujours Pret Richard,
Welcome to the DragoonBase, the new Base
has plenty of updated features
(similar to MySpace), lots of sub-groups,
(ie,Officers Club,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.)
and links for 2nd Cavalry Assn. News
and History Centers.

Robb Russell has posted some tips for
navigating the site(ie,photos,links,ect)
in the Forum.

Make sure to stop by and read the latest
“Tacoma Dave's ‘Triva Quiz’”,you can learn
some 2nd Cav history, and you could
even, win a kool prize.

If you need any help, you may contact
Robb Russell, or any of the 5 admins listed
at the top of the page, or just yell out,
another member may be able to help you.

And our only wish is to, ‘Keep it clean’, use our
Real names/with Pictures, (pix from back in the
day,work best for searching for Brothers,
but any picture will do).

And that you please tell all your friends, about
where to find the DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base,
and for your Service to Our Great Country.
