"Your name sounds so familiar to me. I was in G Troop 81-83, I was in the mortar platoon. I got there as some guy named Foot was on trail for firing a pistol in the barracks."

Tell us a little about your cav days.
Remember the extreme hots and colds of Graf. The seemingly endless road marches breathing dust and exhaust. (Even now the smell of a diesal exhaust on a cold morning brings memories) Hof and being locked in across the street from the teasing girls in the brothel. Border patrol along the "ghost" autobahn. The empty castle across the way in the Kronach tip area. Die Zwiebel in downtown Bamberg ( loved that place). The list is endless

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.
