Tell us a little about your cav days.
Lots of time in the desert. I had a great ride with the 2nd Cav. Everything changed when the 2nd Cav relocated to Fort Lewis and I was sentenced to to years with the new 4th BCTof the 10th Mtn. It was tough being under infantry leadership.

2nd Cav is going through that identity crisis again now, being an infantry stryker brigade, but they have made huge leaps since reflagging in 2006 and are really gobbling up the Cavalry heritage.

Toujours Pret Robert,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie, Officers Club, F-Trp., Amberg, Medics, etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, 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, ‘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 the new DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley



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.
