Phil, I finally managed to get some photos on the site.  Got a couple of you on a border patrol that we were on together.  On of you and Alex Connolly and on of you and I looking over the maps on the hood of a jeep.  Stay tuned for more in a week or so.  Rick.

Phil, Got your reply this morning.  Programmed your number into my phone and will try to give you a call sometime.  Don't do facebook but I have an email address. (ramartin1957@yahoo.com).  Don't have internet access at home but do have my I Phone so I can get email anytime.  Rick.

Phil, I found out about this website when I ran into a fellow 2nd cav veteran at my grandkids soccer game a couple of months ago.  We served together 83-84 in M Co.  I worked in maintenance, recovery, and turret maintenance.  We did a couple of border patrols together.  Have a few pictures of one where we were at the graves of the last 2 german soldiers killed in WW2 and the Osser.  I plan on getting them on the site sometime in the near future.  Just need to get them on a disc to get them posted.  I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
