How are you?  I remember you and Uli, and Heinz from 1986 in Amberg...Pond Baracks.  I couldn't believe I saw you on here.  I was with the Military Police - Tenant, Dennis Slocumb, Rodney Rego, DeFranco, Thomas, Nathanial Laws, and other MPs from that time.  I know you probably hear from a lot of us.  Just wanted to say hello...

Will try to get something downloaded soon.  I saw you last in May 87.  I'll attempt to scan a pic from that era to jog your memory.

I was in Amberg from 86-88. I married Claudia Schaerl--divorced now, but she still lives near me here in NY. She lived in that neighborhood up by Melodies--Wagrain (sp?). Her brother's name is Dieter. I was in L Trp and hung with Phil Garcia, Jim Gumbleton, Stafford Stubbs, and Bud VanFleet. We used to start at the Rock Cafe and then head up to Melodies. Any of those names sound familiar? Who did you hang out with?

Toujours Pret Yvonne,
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 any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, 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 I hope you find who you are looking for, there are a lot of Troopers from Amberg here.

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.
