Butch, I just wondered if you still visit the Base. Trudy Millar passed away a while ago and I thought you would want to know.

Butch, I will have my daughter Sandra scan some of the photo's from C Troop pictures from one of many secure storage safes (shoe boxes) and I have alot of them from 44-45 years in or with the Army. My intention was one day to put them in albums, but I've about gave up on that idea. Take care and drop a line whenever you don't have the Harley Fever. Top

Butch, We are still kicking. I drove by the Rock two weeks ago on my way to visit our oldest girl and her family. The old troopers would just shake there heads, there is a traffic circle between the old Hwy 22 and the NATO road to the Autobahn. Next time I will go on post or better yet, whats left of it. Stay in touch, anything new on Wrong Way Langlo or his whereabouts? Top

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.
