This is pfc hibbs.  We were in 1st platoon at the same time i think.  Didn't you room w/sgt doherty?  Just thought I'd give a shout to say hi, and see how you're doing.

Snyder,  missed your comment up till now.  Yes, Bob Dope was a hand full and I was always trying to keep him in line.  Bob fell out of the same damned window drunk as hell, 2 stories to the ground and a full flight of stairs to the basement beneath.  A three story fall and he was fine.  I ran down and pealed him off the concrete and was amazed he didnt have a scratch.  Met Capt Cruz on the corner, he asked me if I had him squared away and that was all that was said.

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.
