SSG Wayne Eugene Dixon received PCS orders for Fiddler's Green 2018/12/17.

Rest in peace, old friend. I guess you will have to save that bottle of brandy until I join you at the Green.

Hi Wayne

Did I answer your question about the staff sgt killed at Camp Gates? He was ground guiding a 114 into position and something happened to the SFC driving the 114.  I saw most of it. Sad thing was both these NCO were both WWll and Korea vets. Not sure of the date but it was summer 1964 or '65.

1994 was a typo I was there from 62 to 65

Not sure when dad got to Austria, late 1945 I think, and he left March 1947. After the war before coming home he was transferred to the 83d Infantry Division, then the 42d  Infantry Division, and finally the 4th Constabulary Regiment, as a displaced persons officer for all three units, before coming back to the States at Ft. Lewis.

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.
