Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

We are in Germany right now. We have already been on the Rock in Bindlach and are staying with CW3-Ret Byron Dickmann who has a house just outside of Bad Berneck.
It's humid and a little cool today, but everything is green and lush. I did not recognize the Rock anymore. The building where I worked, (Family Housing) is now a curtain store.
The long buildings which were family quarters,have balconies now! The Dispensary is completely gone.
We are going to Benk to church on Sunday and afterwards to a "Kirchweihfest" .
Ah, and they have Radlhalbe (beer and lemon soda) in a bottle now! The Bratwurst in Bayreuth Fussgaengerzone tastes the same as I remember. Max 30 and the "Keller Bar" are gone, Hertie is gone.
I had Kaesesahnekuchen at Cafe Oetter today!
I'll take lots of pictures and try to put them on the dragoon base when I'm back home in Texas. Til then:
Auf Wiedersehen!

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.
