I sent Mike an e-mail this morning with a link to the web site. I told him you were putting together a list of L-Troopers from the 81-83 time frame.

I sent you a Friend request in order to send you an e-mail. I know where one of the L-Troop Scouts is from 81-83. His name is Mike Bates, and he was in L-Troop when you were. He was a 19D Private then, and is a National Guard SFC 11B now here in Florida. He works at Range Control at Camp Blanding, and I met him when I was a contractor there after I retired from the Army. Because  I am an old 3/11 ACR, and 2/2 ACR Scout we became friends. I can get you his e-mail address if you'd like.

Toujours Pret Lonnie,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer 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 the new DragoonBase.

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

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.
