LT. Cardillo, Hows's everything going ? Thiis is "ROB " from I Troop 3/2 ACR  3rd Herd. You replaced LT. Harriman as our PLT. Leader. I remember when we were on Troop Fight or Capstone or whatever it was, and SFC. Walsh went to pick you up. You even commanded my tank I 3/4 during a field problem.

We also found what was left of Pond Barracks. I had a former M Co trooper from the late 70's as my guide. Tried to get in the mess hall, but it was closed. Got a door slammed behind us at one of the remaining barracks by an old gal that wasn't too pleased with us poking around in the stairwell.

Since it had been over 30 years, Shannon couldn't remember where the barracks were so we had to track down a cab driver at the bahnhof who spoke enough English and was old enough to remember Pond Barracks.

Didn't have any trouble finding his favorite brewery, though! We had the whole place to ourselves that day, and enjoyed a delicious doppleboch that made the walk back to the car an adventure.

Hey Tony (or should I again call you "Ras Cardillo?),

I got an email notification that you'd joined. Glad you're still kicking. I'm in Atlanta and see Mike Hanley every so often. I'll spread the word that you've been found!

Welcome to Dragoon Base, sir. I was just through Amberg July 2011.

My son brought this sign home from Ft. Lewis one day. Said a major gave it to him because he was tired of moving it from post to post. Said he brought it back from Iraq. I'm thinking of making a picnic table out of it.

Quite a few Amberg guys over in the oldtimers group. Wear your boots, because shit gets deep over there.

Always ready, sir!

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.
