Tell us a little about your cav days.
Like many of you this was my first assignment out of Armor AIT at Fort Knox. They were wild and crazy (fun) times. On my first day in the Squadron I was asked my 1SG Juan Manibusan if I could type. I made the mistake of saying a little. I was put ot work in Squadron HQ. During gunnery I would go with D Company as a loader or driver.
Tell us a little about you now.
I retired in 1996 as a First Sergeant.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Ken Edwards, Lawrence Crawford, Mike Molnar, Charles Shaw.

1st Squadron

I was in 1st Squadron from 1976 to 1978. Any Rock Troopers out there from this time frame?

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.
