Hey Alex, great hearing from you. Not on this site much. Mostly do the Facebook thing. If you sign up let me know. I work at University of Tennessee as an instructional designer. Retired from the Army National Guard with 26 years, 14 were active, even some time as AGR. Hung in long enough to spend a year in Iraq. That’s what did it for me, time to hang up the spurs.

Morning Alex. So good to connect with you. Never thought I would ever have a fb page, but since I found Dragoon Base, and saw who was here, I ended up getting one. Phil Benson was the one that got me on to it. There are a few fb groups that I have become involved with. One of them, I am an admin of. It started out for just those at Pond Barracks, but it grew to include all of the 2ACR and then to those that served in Germany during the Cold War. I see you are looking to make contact with Steve Vigil and Thomas Renn. They are both on the Pond Barracks page. No luck finding Noaks as of yet. If you decide to get a page, let me know. I will get you into the groups that I belong to. One is strictly for anyone who served with Mighty Mike. That group has less than 100 members while the Pond is just over 1000. So good to make contact after so many years. I have actually met up with Stewart Smith a couple of times. He was the XO when I left. I have your number. Will try to give you a call later today or sometime soon. Got to catch up.

Hey Alex, Remember this?

I left a note for Joe Brindley also.

Wow, can't believe anyone would still remember the old Peugeot. I left that car parked in the MP's parking lot in Graf when I turned my tags in. Left keys & title in it. Haha. I had to get Micheale to drive me back to Amberg. Great to hear from you ! What have you been doing all these years ? I see you were also asking about Ricky Martin. I talk with him about once a month on messager.

My pleasure, Alex. I left a note for Max Tritt and Roger Minnick too letting them know you were here. John Michmerschuizen's Facebook account went quiet last October so I don't know what is up with him.

Hey Alex, welcome to Dragoon Base.

Good to hear some voices echoing in the halls around here, even if it is 3d Squadron.

My dad and I both served with 1st Squadron in Bindlach (1953-55 & 1974-75) but I was adopted into 3d Squadron by the squadron commander Bryan Denny in 2011.I'll let Mad Max know you are looking for him. He doesn't stop by Dragoon Base much anymore.

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.
