Tell us a little about your cav days.
great time firing all the weapons and visiting different countries met a lot of great people there, for being 19-20-21 years old it was quite the experience. My brother was flying Huey's in Viet Nam when I first got there. A lot of cold nights but a lot of great memories also. I like the border camps the best but all in all a memory I will never forget.
Tell us a little about you now.
Not sure where to start. I got out and went to Clarksville,Tn Austin Peay State for about a year then came home to Elkhart and worked on the railroad for 6 years, got laid off, then worked at a place called Whitehall for 10years and then they moved out of the country and have been a 911 dispatcher for the City of Elkhart for the last 21 years.
Do you have a web site?
Phone number (Optional).
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Jimmy Addock, Duke Sultzer, Mike Garrett, Steve Carlile. Lt Moncure, wow so many more, can't believe I came across this site just purely by accident. I know all the guys your talking about here and I just about soiled myself reading this. Not many people understand or even remember. A ton has gone on since 1974.

Do you remember me, I was a buck Sergeant in 2nd platoon.  I worked for "Wolfman" Jackson. I was one of his scouts.  SFC Lee was my platoon Sgt.  I bunked with Kurt Miller down the hall from you. I was at the rock from 72-75,

Hello Mike, my name is Raymond Gonzalez from Baja California Mexico. I left the Rock in March of 72 but met some of your buddies. One of them is "Neck" or William Garret. Go to his page and you will find some of the best pictures on this site. On one, you are sitting on the turrent of your tank. I think that is you. Anyway, the fotos are good, especially the black and white. 

   Your friend in Mexico, Ray g.

Well Hello Sarge, I am very glad to hear from you. Hope you are doing great. This site is awesome. Sorry to tell you we lost Steve (Razor) around 1995 HIV. He moved to my home town. We enjoyed his last 5 years together.  I have been trying to get up with all Our Brothers for years & it's beginning to happen. Take care Sarge & God Bless You & Your Family. I am still a Carolina TarHeel. LOL Jimmy Adcock

I really do not know what I can tell you. Except go to the Members tab, type in the name you are searching for and hit the enter key[faster], than clicking the Advanced Search tab.

Then once you find your person, go to their page and write in their comment box.

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.
