Hey Bill. Been A long time now. I have been in contact with Tony (the wop) as well. Good to hear from you. I rarely get on here - probably should more often...

If you're talking about the instant message thing, it's irrelevant now.

Ha! The only Guard duty I remember was my last 30 days. I turned down LTC. Smith's offer of E-6, OCS and 12K. (Kick myself in the ass today) Ended up on the first permanent Guard duty. 30 days as a relief commander... Then I ETS'ed.

Bill, sounds like your starting your retirement off right!  Good times. I golf 2, 3 times a week and I'm very happy if I break 100.

Congratulations Bill!  Have a great time in FLA and in your retirement.

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.
