Hey Tom...
It took a bit too remember but I did. Man do I remember the Club at Camp Rotz.
and the Hawaiian Bar in Amberg. I also remember partying in the barracks a little here a little there if you catch my drift. Good to see you on here. I lived in Louisville Ky. for 10 years then moved on to Bedford In. for another 10 yrs. now Im back where it all started after 37 yrs. El Paso Tx. Drop me a line ..

Toujours Pret Tom,
Welcome to the DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of updated features, lots of sub-groups,(ie, Officers Club, 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,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history, and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures (pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country.

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.
