I remember a photographer taking a troop photo of HHT in the summer of '77...I never received a copy from the photographer...If someone has a copy of that photo I would greatly appreciate seeing it posted...All who came into the 3rd squadron during my tenure had to see me because I handled the security clearances...Anyway I thank all who are responsible for putting this web site together...It is good thing you are doing...Godspeed to all...

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.
