It's nice to see you LT Sudol. I remember you well when you were the XO of Delta Company with CPT Wagner and CPT Skinner. I was in 3rd platoon at that time, SSG Curby was the PSG, SSG Perkins, Coulture and SGT Brooks were the Tank Commanders and I don't even remember who the PLT LDR, But he left shortly after that and then LT Johnson became our PLT Leader.

Hi Thom,

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.
