I have not heard from or about any of them. I believe Darden's first name was Steve. Zane Cooley is currently living in Montana and flying for a hospital. He has done some impressive things with his flying career from teaching to various flight environments and aircraft. Those were definitely some of my fondest and favorite years of my life. I was fortunate to work with a great group of men and do things that you definitely can't do in the civilian world.
If you get the chance, search the web for Feucht and see how the airfield has changed. It is now a truck stop on the autobahn.

Well it sounds as if you and your family are staying busy and doing well! Glad to hear that even after your retirement that you are still serving your country by teaching young soldiers!

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.
