Hello Robert, Charley Murphree-1/2 ACR B TRP/3rd PLT, Welcome to Dragoon Base, I was stationed at Bindlach,near Bayreuth. It looks like you have been a busy Trooper & still are. Again, welcome.

You're not the first Bob Thompson from Amberg to show up here.  Welcome home nonetheless.  The other one got stuck in Hohenfels back in the 80s and he lives there to this day!  Looks like you paid your dues, the first one's on me!

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.
