Hey Thom. Last I heard you were still living in Germany, but that was some time ago. I'm back in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Crazy times back then. Always wanted to be "short" but looking back it was a great time. I found Sgt. Oney on here and a few others. I also became a Grandfather back in December. Glad to hear from you. Keep in touch.

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.
