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

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.
