I don't remember you from Delta company but if you were there from 79 to 82 we served together. I did see some of my old friends in your pictures. SFC Webster was my platoon sergeant when i was the Tank Commander of D26 Sgt Chavez was also in your photos and he was my roommate until I left Delta company.

Don't remember you but if you were in Delta company form 79 to 82 I was there from 77-80. You have some pictures of guys I know, SFC Webster was our platoon sergeant when I was with the second platoon. Sgt Chavez was my roommate, and of course Hurst and I were good friends. HiLo was a good buddy of mine as well when we were in the first platoon together. Sorry I can't place you were you in the second platoon and whose tank were you on at the time.

Hey Rick, do you remember the name of the guy who was in charge of the arms room.

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.
