Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Dear Grandpa,

I know, I havn´t been here for long time now. So here are the news:

- Christmas eve was great. We had a lot of fun all together, it was a great family time. Even if YOU are still missing. We talked a lot about you.. and we got some new achievements. Well.. I guess you know that. So.. ah back to the point: ur missing. (always the same boring story, hmm?)

- today is my birthday, I´m 28 now. Gettin´ old. Hubby laughed and that made me cry. I guess I married a dumb one ;)

- my forth birthday present was a new job. a real great one. so in March I´ll start working in public service. That´s a great chance and I got it! So I´ll do my very best to survive probation. Even my "little" brother will have entrance examination soon.

Dear Grandpa, how u can see: we´re no idiots and no felons. So why don´t you love us, like we love you? Why don´t you miss us, like we miss you? You know the crazy thing in this story? You can REALLY miss a person you never seen (in reality) before. Your my Grandpa and my best-Dad-in-the-world-s-father.. how can´t I? You´re important to us! 

I really wish, you´d write back and tell me how proud you are.. that´s what Grandpa´s do.. they care.. they teach.. sometimes they rant.. and they love.. 

we love you, Grandpa <3

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.
