Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Twas the night before Christmas

And all through the track

Not a creature was stirring

We'd all hit the rack.

Our web gear was hung

On the side with great care

Hoping our relief

Would soon be there.

Suddenly we saw

On the radar with fright

A blip heading from the East

With great height

Unable to raise Pittman (the batteries had froze)

We saw through the binos a shiny read nose

We hit the ground after seeing this sight

And heard in the distance

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

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.
