Hi, I was in Support Troop Air about the same time you were in Air Troop. I am trying to locate one of those Troop pictures we took when we were in Feucht. I know we were not in the same Troop but hope you may know of someone or direct me in a direction I can get a copy. My nic name back then was SP4 Espi and I was in C & C Platoon crewing the 58's. Thank you.

The Military Aviator As Seen by Himself:

An incredibly intelligent, tall, handsome, innovative, and highly
trained professional killer, idol to countless females, and Gentleman
Adventurer, who wears a star sapphire ring, carries a hair-trigger .45
automatic in a specially designed, hand-made quick draw holster along with his trusty survival knife, who is always on time thanks to his ability to obtain immediate transportation and the reliability of his Rolex watch.

As seen by his wife:

A disreputable member of the family who comes home once a year all bruised up, driving a stolen jeep up to the back door carrying a B-4 bag full of dirty laundry, wearing a stained flight suit, smelling of stale booze and JP-4, wearing a huge watch, a fake ring, and that damn ugly beat-up pistol in that stupid holster, who will three months later go out the front door, thankfully for another year.

As seen by his commander:

A fine specimen of a drunken, brawling, jeep stealing, woman corrupting liar, with a star sapphire ring, fantastically accurate Rolex watch, an unauthorized .45 in a non-regulation shoulder holster, and trusty survival knife.

As seen by Wing Headquarters:

The embodiment of a drunken, brawling, jeep stealing, woman corrupting, lying, zipper-suited Sun God, with a ring, a proscribed 1911A1 .45 in a non-regulation shoulder holster, a Rolex watch, who for some reason carries a survival knife.

As seen by the DoD:

An overpaid, rule-ignoring, over-ranked tax burden, who is unfortunately totally indispensable simply because he has volunteered to go anywhere, and do anything, at any time, only so long as he can booze it up, brawl, steal jeeps, corrupt women, lie, and wear a star sapphire ring, Rolex watch, and carry an obsolete hand gun and a survival knife.

As seen by the enemy:

The implacable face of death!

Great to hear from you, I've been in the area since I retired in 95. I've been working for Camber Corp since then and have worked on and off Ft. Hood for the past 14 years.

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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
