Package arrived safe and sound. Man, they killed you on the postage! Any way I can make that up to you?

Pretty intriguing array of items. Thanks for sharing them. That is quite the map. Very good reference material, all of it. I hope the museum will appreciate it as much as I do. Our air assets were very critical to our mission through the entire Cold War and Desert Storm, and shouldn't be forgotten.

Hope all is well with you.

As Robb mentioned, I'm pretty much the resident historian around here. I do the 2nd Cavalry Association's history and news websites, and work in close contact with our museum when it is up and running.

The museum is currently in storage, but we are working to rectify that problem. I'd be more than happy to take the items off your hands and make sure they are utilized properly. When the museum reopens, I can forward them to the new curator in Vilseck, Germany, if you like.

Yeah, the drawdown really sucked. As you can see by the attached picture I was down to a small shell of a troop by March of 92.

Good to see you. Some of the 93Bs that I flew with were as good as many pilots (and better than some).

Welcome to the site and glad to see you here.



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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
