I also wondered what happened to him. He was my platoon SGT. in 78-79 in 1st. Platoon A-Troop.  Pretty tough character when he was a SFC. He was from Texas, and his real name was Jimmy Collins, but they nicknamed him Dust Off, but shortened to Dusty. He served with the 5th. Special Forces Group in Viet Nam I believe.

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.
