Hey Sam, I have yearbooks from 1961 and 1962 posted on the internet. You can see them here, just click on the year below each picture. You can click on each page to enlarge it. After it enlarges, click on the page again to make it large enough to easily read. Hope you enjoy!

By the way, my dad was in the 2d Cavalry 1953-55 and we lived in Bayreuth. His birthday would have been in 4 days. He would have been 105.

Toujours Pret Sam,

Welcome home Troop.
The DragoonBase here at Ning.com, has
plenty of updated features
(similar to MySpace), lots of sub-groups,
(Officers Club,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc),
and links for “2nd Cavalry Assn.”
News and History Centers.

Robb Russell has posted some tips for
navigating the site(ie,photos,links,ect)
in the Forum.

Please feel free to stop by and read the
latest “Tacoma Dave's ‘Triva Quiz’”,
you can learn some 2nd Cav history,
and you could even, win a kool prize.

If you need any help, you may contact
Robb Russell, 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 is to,
‘Keep it clean’.
Use your real name and picture,
(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, where to find the DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base,
and for your Service and Dedication,
to Our Great Country.

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.
