Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Wish I could've made the annual meeting.

Hello Jason,

Sorry I missed the annual get together at your home. It would've been great to see some folks from 2ACR again. Unfortunately, I was a bit under the weather and am looking forward to a recovery.

How everything went well and thanks for the invite. Really ticked off about missing the good chow and company.

First in last out Recon...

Always ready and second to none...

There are a few reunions going on. The 2d Cavalry Association has their reunion every two years on the odd number years, but this year it was on the even year to coincide with the closing of the Armor Center at Ft. Knox. It was a big blow out with all the Cav and Armor Associations at once. The Michigan Chapter has a get together coming up real soon.

1st Squadron has reunions on the even numbered years.

The get together that Sgt Badal is referencing is the Colorado Platoon, started by Jason Hastings this year.

There is a C Trp 1955-57 reunion coming up, too. I think some of the F Troop guys have a group that get together every year. Just gotta keep your eyes and ears open. I'll be putting out the word in the upcoming events section on the front page whenever I hear about one. I also post notices on the Associations news and history websites.

I haven't been to one yet, but they are getting harder and harder to avoid!

Annual Reunion?
Someone please, please tell me more about this.
Would love to spend time with some old cav rats.
I'm not a rich dude, but I think that I can travel a little, and
to me, I feel it would be really, really worth it.
Too bad we can't all get together in Germany, anywhere else but Graf or Hohenfels!!

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.
