Good deal my step daughter spent 6 years there (career student) but has since graduated and is now married with a 4 year old and a great son-in-law living in Fort Worth.

I do have pictures but I will have to dig them out a couple of the ones that you put up like of Babela and Sgt Richburg I have but I will look and see.

Whenever you get ready to come down let me know. I will see if I can get  Brian Richardson aka. Cheeks to come down also

Not a problem 



Remember SGT. Bull and SGT Medovich

I was over in C Troop while you were there. Great to have you on the Base.

The crumbly green, brown, red, black and blonde didn't help much either.

Yeah, I visited the Rock in 2008 and 2011. Hardly recognized the place with all the housing up there now. A few of the original buildings were still there from my time (74-75), but not many.

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Jeff. Make yourself at home.

Took you a month to get an Art. 15? What took so long? I thought they handed those out as part of the welcome package!


Colonels of the Regiment

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.
