"They didn't handout qualifying certificates during the mid-60's, instead (at least in our troop) we received engraved Zippo's.  Actually, they were a lot more practical."

"Actually Dave, Camp Reed and Camp May belonged to the 3rd Armored Cav when I was there.  So 2nd AC must have expanded its border sector footprint sometime after I left in December 1966."

"During mid-tour I became a jeep driver for 6 months.  I drove XO Lt. Cummins (heir to the Cummins Diesel fortune). This was his XKE that we took to Nurnberg a coupe of times because he didn't want to travel @ 45 mph on the autobahn. …"

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Terence. Make yourself at home.

I see camp assignments changed after you left. When I was there 1974-75, Pitman and Gates belonged to 1st Squadron out of Bindlach. 3rd Squadron had Camp Reed (Rotz) and May (Regen). My first day in the 2d Cav was at Gates and my last day in the 2d Cav was at Pitman.
