I've never spoken with any of Tony's family, and only knew him briefly on the internet, but he was a good man and left a deep impression on me. Please pass on my condolences to his family also.

Sorry again, Tom. I had Tony's obit and everything listed on the old Dragoon Base website but we lost all ten years worth of stuff when Microsoft decided to pull the plug. There was also another news article that mentioned a Silver Star he was awarded in VN.

The last e-mail I got from him was 01Dec06.

Toujours Pret Thomas,
Welcome Sir, 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,
Jesse Kelley

Sorry to report that Tony Brinkley has taken the long ride to Fiddler's Green.

The Dueler is alive and well, and will likely attend the next reunion (2010, Ft Knox). Just saw Gen. Maddox on a CNN video from January, talking about Guantanimo.

Toujours Pret,
'Tacoma Dave' Gettman

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.
