How are you?  Just found the site yesterday . . . Sorry about leaving you in the lurch like I did, but that damned tree had it in for me . . . I do know that Doug Brimmer went on to 3/3 ACR.  After I recovered from the crash, I went on to become the SigO of 2/3 ACR.

It's good to see you here also. It does bring back alot of memories. After looking at the pictures some people posted on this site, it reminded me of how freakin cold it was, running PT or all those cold reforgers. I was never one to take pictures but know I wish I did. I ETSed in 93. How bout you? I notice you were Med retired what from? I'll be talking to you soon.

Sure, I remember now, you replaced SFC Ortega as commo chief, right? Clemmons was brand new to the unit at that time, and I was transferred to the Artillery unit. Whatever happened with Clemmons? He was nice guy – family man too. There was awkward 2nd LT that replaced Cpt. Spearman as well. What was his name?

Have no idea what your talking about, (Borrowing Pews). I think you have me confused with someone else. More info would be helpful.

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.
