Hi Frank, I enjoyed myself also, what made it the most memorable was, it was my first duty station so everything I learned stuck like glue.
Santa Maria is a very nice place, it's close to everything to enjoy in California.

Since I'm the history guy around here, I thought I'd leave you with this little bit of info about your home town...........After the Mexican war, the Regiment moved west to secure the country’s newly acquired territories for the influx of settlers. In June of 1849 troopers from Company F under the command of Major Ripley Arnold established an encampment along the banks of the Trinity River in Texas, which they named Fort Worth in honor of General William J. Worth, whom the Regiment had served with during the final years of the Seminole War. This area is now known as “the fort that became a city”, Dallas/Fort Worth.

Hi Warren.
It is very nice to be in touch with you.
My experiences in D Co were among my fondest.
I took many several pictures but I lost most of them. Fortunately, I was able to find a few at a relatives closet.
Things are going well. I learned the 2nd ACR founded Fort Worth where I live. Such a small world.

I remember SFC Crump as a no-nonsense professional who made his soldiers excell.
I hope things are going well for him.
Of course, I hope things are going well for you and your family too.
Al for now.

Always Ready Sir!

Hey Frank, it's great to see your pictures--they bring back many a memory. I remember you well. Glad you found this place. I know SFC Crump is on here, but don't know of too many other DCo folks from our time.

Welcome back to the Cav, Frank.

You DO know Ft. Worth was established by the 2d Cavalry, don't you?
