Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Russell Luppo (born: 17 October, 1923) died on 5 April, 2014. He was a long-time member of the 2d Cavalry Association and attended many reunions. He served in the Regiment in WWII in Gen. Patton's army. He will be buried in Jackson, MI on 10 April. His funeral is being handled by Desnoyer Funeral Home, Jackson, MI. Details available online.
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.

During my time in Amberg I did a little research on the origin of our "Mighty Mike". The folks at Cadillac sent the photos shown on my Amberg album. The pictures are not our M-66 Jr. but great pictures anyway.
For all the men who served with my father and were kind enough to respond and share Thank you you have blessed and filled a part of my heart that has always felt empty. My dad died doing what he loved he had so much pride in the history of the HOW batt.The army was not his job it was his life he was not perfect ( he was a 20 yr old in a foreign land in the 70s enough said) but now it has been confirmed that he was a man worthy of respect. I have honored his life and legacy all of my life but…Continue

Former C Troop First Sergeant Ned Devereaux need any information (tales, stories, memories...) about a great NCO, the late 1SG (ret) Paul Garcia. Paul passed away back in 2004 and a tribute to be published in the Spring of 2014 will need as much information to honor a great C TROOP member.
Ned e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
--Regards & Blessings!

The following is a poem of sorts, written by John McGowen. McGowen was an Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer (Ret), with 21 years of active service. He currently resides in Michigan.
I am really astounded by the simple power of this piece. In just a few paragraphs, it conveys decades of government abuse and an unending need to speak up. It is profound and a great read. It is also a charge, a charge for us to get involved, and make our voices heard before it's too…Continue

a few days ago I made my best friend the happiest woman on this world. I found her GI-Dad. He really flipped out, he cried and thanked me million times. He also searched his daughter but didn´t find her. Until me and my nose came along, he had no hope to find her after 27 years. What can I say except the fact that I was "adopted", too? I´m her biest friend, we are like siblings and she was always a part of my familiy, called my parents mom and dad - and I now got a "second mom and dad", just…Continue
