Basic Training Photograph

I was assigned to Company A, 17th Bn, 5th Bde (A-17-5), USAARMC, Fort Knox, Kentucky, August 30, 1974 to October 29, 1974.

My home was completely destroyed by one of the 13 tornadoes that struck the Oklahoma City area on May 20, 2011. I lost my uniforms, medals, and a number of military awards, documents, and photos. I have replaced a number of the items lost, but would sure like to have some of the photos replaced.

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.
