Hi SPC Nelson. 1SG Dave Gray here contacting you from Germany. Hope that you are doing well. I stumbled on this site yesterday. Thanks for posting the great pictures from your platoon. They brought back some wonderful  memories and sad ones too. It was terrible when we lost Lyaski after returning from Desert Storm.  I have contacted SGT Little from the maintenance section and SFC Fish also. Would love to contact as many of the D Co troops as possible. Let me know how you are doing.

Hi Rob,   I am Dave Lyaski's sister, I came across the photo you posted of my little brother while doing a random Google of our last name.  I wanted to thank you for posting the pictures and for the tribute.  I shared the pictures with his niece and nephew, who were born after he died.  It's great to have contact with you and his other brothers in combat.  Again, thank you from myself and the rest of the family.  My best to you, Andrea

Hey what's up Man, been a long time! How are you? I just wrote to Dave's sister! Have you kept in touch with anyone from Bindlach? The last time we spoke I was still living in Germany with Birgitt (now married and have three kids). Still jammin' to Judas Priest? I'm doing well and living back home in Indiana. Been to Italy lately?? Later, John King

Hey Rob! I had been searching for you for quite some time now… didn’t have much luck. It was a total surprise today when Tim contacted me and told me that you found him.

I’m doing pretty well... currently living in Baltimore, MD. Moved here in 2005 from Missouri (I landed there after I retired) and enjoying the east coast. Glad we made contact… I’ve added you on FB as well so we can touch bases there as well!!!

No thanks Rob, you can keep it. As little as we get snow here in Tacoma it is plenty enough for me. I'll drive to the mountains if I want to see it.

Glad you are finding old buddies already. That's what we're all about.

Have a good one, neighbor.

Hey Rob! Man I've been looking for you for a long time. I'm in contact with Fish and Terry Fortson on a regular basis. I haven't heard from Terry Horner in a long time. Last time I heard from him he was an instructor pilot at Fort Rucker nearing retirement. Fish and Fortson are doing good, we're all just getting old and grey. I frequently talk to my son's about you and Ski. It seems like such a long time ago. I tried to find you on Facebook but I found only "Robert Nelson" with no picture so I wasn't sure it was you. I'm on FB under Tim Davis, Gainesville, FL. Look me up.

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Rob.

Looks like you guys are getting a little winter blast over there in Spokane.

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.
