Yes Bernie, I remember SFC Dickey the Mortar Plt. Sgt. also I remember SGT Roach and Specialist 4 Stockley. SFC Dickey went to the Regimental HQs and same 1SG Collins after he came back to Germany from his treatment and recovery from Walter Reed Army Medical Center. SFC Dickey and Dusty Collins both worked on the Regiment S-3 Shop, I was the ROC Border Operations NCOIC until December 1983, then I went to Ft. Polk and took over B Troop 4/12 Cav as 1SG. Do you know what happen with Dickey, Roach and/or Stockley?

" It was 1981 and must be first name was Marc and he was very big, I hope I give the right size now at 206cm but are 6,75 foot,or 81,10 inches,because I just do not know much, I had just the hope that someone in the name I have given remembers.

" Bernie you remember his name? said he was very, very big, and I think he would have me, he said, would also play basketball in bayreuth or Bindlach, maybe you say the name Angela Loeffler, Gabi Hirschmann, Sabine Rogowski, Vera Pueschel, Ramona Mueller, Petra und Andrea Mueller were the twins, and of course Thomas Rawlings of German-Americans

" Hi Bernie, that would be nice if you could help me, because slowly I am thinking if I can not leave to search, I always knew that it is very difficult because I had nothing exept his first name and the time, but the hope was just always there that anybody remembers it, there is one thing which I remember well, he must have at that time had one accident-back ride on a maneuver in Wunsiedel or Weisenstadt I then told the had failed brakes, maybe do you remember names from this time because many of my girlfriends had an American boyfriend.I hope you can understand everything :-) Gina

Colonels of the Regiment

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



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.
