Hi Tom, I do remember your name and you brought up a few names I have not heard in years! I have not heard from those guys, I have kept in loose contact with Doug White who was also a medic. I think the Mike you are referring to is Mike Sheldon from Louisiana. He was always in some sort of jam or another but a real nice guy. Just not ready for the Army yet. I have some pictures of Bamberg and Hof posted on my blog traveltrooper.blogspot.com Have a bunch of other stuff posted but if you pick through you'll see my recent Bamberg. Hope you are doing well, we are all a bit older and starting to have some parts break down. Chris

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.
