1LT Johnson was C Trp. XO under CPT Stephen Hawkins and before that CPT Hawkins was XO under CPT Lute (now LTG(Ret.) Lute). Last time I seen Hawkins he was a MAJOR working in Ft. Knox Armor Development Branch writing Armored Cavalry Field Manuals.

Hey Rich,

Long time no see. Hope your doing well.





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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
