I left the Army in 1982. After Bindlach I went to Ft. Knox for about a year in school and then to Ft. Rucker to flight school and Cobra transition. From there to Ft. Riley for a couple of years and finally to Ft. Polk. Except for the schools all my time was in Cav units. After I left the Army I moved to the Kansas City area and worked for Macy's as an Operations Manager for a year and then went to Hallmark Cards for eighteen years inn Manufacturing, Human Resources, and I/T. Retired form Hallmark in 2001, but went to work for UMB Bank in Human Resources until I retired again in 2007. Married in 1981, but no kids.

Hey Brian!

Do you still have that French flag that you boosted from the French Kaserne on Reforger? I remember you had it on the wall of your room in the C Troop barracks. You never would tell me the story behind it though. So what have you been up to since the mid-seventies?

Brian, Good to hear from you. Yes, You and Spec. Bell and Donahue were some of my orderly room clerks. I remember you left the troop to work in the Sqdn S-1. And when you cleared you were going to Idaho, I have so many pictures of my career and the Troops. I will have to find some of you and put them on line. Also remember you wereone of favorites to remind to get a haircut. Brian thanks again for dropping a line, Top Miller

Toujours Pret Brian,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the site has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site(ie,photos,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out another member may be able to help.
And his only wish that ‘We keep it clean’, use our real names/with pictures, and you tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley

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.
