Yup,I don't get on here as much as I should either. I do text John Gates,Rich Frehs ,Sean McCarthy. Am moving to North Carolina sometime early next year.Instead of being a Masshole I'll have to learn to be a redneck.Just retired last year after a career in Radiology,retiring as a Cat Scan tech.Forty years walking on those hard hospital floors resulted in two knee replacements. Also beat bladder cancer although I do have a bag til I croak but I'm happy to be alive. Ok,don't want to bore oyu right away. Take care-Raz

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.
