Tell us a little about your cav days.
It was the best time I had during my 3 years in the Army. We had a mission, we trained hard and yet had time to form friendships....and we laughed all the time. Reforger, Subaltern Shoot, Graf, Monday morning alerts (going to the railhead) and just doing our daily mission.....it was a time I will never forget. Dueler Six kept us motivated. It was a very cool thing that he had us wear the Ranger style "Border Caps" with the Border tab on them. It made us feel has though we stood out from the rest of the 7th Army. "If you ain't Cav....You ain't Sh_ _" Always Ready!
Tell us a little about you now.

Toujours Pret Tim,
Welcome 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 myself, 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

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.
