I have not heard from or about any of them. I believe Darden's first name was Steve. Zane Cooley is currently living in Montana and flying for a hospital. He has done some impressive things with his flying career from teaching to various flight environments and aircraft. Those were definitely some of my fondest and favorite years of my life. I was fortunate to work with a great group of men and do things that you definitely can't do in the civilian world.
If you get the chance, search the web for Feucht and see how the airfield has changed. It is now a truck stop on the autobahn.

Well it sounds as if you and your family are staying busy and doing well! Glad to hear that even after your retirement that you are still serving your country by teaching young soldiers!

I do remember you from Germany. Are you still living overseas? What are you doing nowadays? I am currently working as a Tactical Flight Observer with the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Just celebrated 17 years of marriage and have three daughters.

Toujours Pret William,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,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.
