Toujours Pret Troy,
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.
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,
Jesse Kelley

Yes I did enjoy the pic's. Thanks loads.

Shouldn't be too much longer before I fire up the contest. Got hit with some major plumbing problems I have to take care of first. My toilet is dumping in the crawl space under my house!!

Yup, that was me that bought the patch. Had to go back and look on the old Dragoon Base. Steve McKee won it in the trivia contest on July 11, 2008, and requested I donate it to our museum, which I did. It's in storage in Vilseck, until they reopen the museum.

Gettin' ready to revive the contest soon. Just trying to get the History Center back into shape after the software upgrade screwed everything up.

One of these days I'll also post some pictures of the 2nd Cavalry steins and mugs I've donated to the museum and the trivia contest. Been having to cut a lot of corners or I would have bid on yours and donated it.

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.
