I was reading your comment about the IG getting you promoted, sure wish they had come around me. I had 8 years in grade when I retired from the service, one of the reasons I got our then, was in an frozen MOS could not make my 7. Had real good jobs, just unable to advance. Welcome aboard.
Glad to see some more of the older guys in here who were there the same time as us. When the wife finds all of my old pictures I will post them here for everyone to see.
Like you I am finally retired and doing what I want to.
Be careful Talk to you later

Toujours Pret Ronald,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,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,
