Hi Bill,welcome.I was in I Troop in 1965/66 and HQ 1966/68.When I was Sq.CBR NCO I used to put you all through the tear gas chamber tent, and give classes in the auditorium/theater.Since I wore an eye patch due to injuries my closing statement at the end of my class was " I will always keep an eye out for you all." Do you remember that?

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.
