Sorry I missed your comment from last June, Terence.

There is a great website if you want to read up on US Army border operations in Germany 1945-83. A LOT of information, might take months to read.

Looks like the patrol areas were in a lot of chaos during the 1960's between squadrons, regiments, and even countries back then. It was some interesting reading.

Check out CHAPTER FIVE THE BORDER FORCE ADJUSTS: 1960-1970.

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

I see camp assignments changed after you left. When I was there 1974-75, Pitman and Gates belonged to 1st Squadron out of Bindlach. 3rd Squadron had Camp Reed (Rotz) and May (Regen). My first day in the 2d Cav was at Gates and my last day in the 2d Cav was at Pitman.

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.
