Don, That would be too cool. My son is stationed in L.A. Haven't seen him or my grandaughter in over a year. Money is a little tight right now, but I start anew job in Oct. When we were in Germany, Everyone always wanted to come to
Cali. I guess i'm starting to sound like that. I'm sure that Shannon would make
the trip down. I'll let you know when I can.

Thanks for getting back with me, good to hear from you. Yeap, when I arrived Amberg I was assigned to I Troop and within a month or so we went to the border at Camp May. When we returned they sent me to M Company. They said it was because I knew the M-60's and that was right about the time they were trying to decide if MCO was going to CAT. So When I showed up at MCO, MCO was packing up to go to Camp Rotz. When I got to MCO they put me in the 2nd platoon and put me on M66 as Capt.Rowells gunner w/Holmes as my driver and Struass as my loader.. I'm pretty sure Sgt. Sierra was my platoon sgt, and then out of nowhere they put M66 & M65 in HQ platoon and Sgt. Willaims was are platoon sgt.or it might have the other way around, it's been a long time.
Hey, I never thought I would forget his name but can you remember the name of the new guy that comitted suicide at Camp Rotz while he was on gaurd duty. I often think of him.

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.
