Looking for anyone who knew my father A troop 1st Squadron

Hi all, I am looking for anyone who may have served with my father, Scott Paradis. He was the supply sergeant for A troop, 1st Squadron, 2nd ACR in Bindlach, Germany, from 1981-1983. 


His 49th birthday is this week and I am hoping to surprise him with a few phone calls from people he probably hasn't seen for thirty years. 


If you think you may have served with him please let me know, i would really like to reunite him with some old friends.

Thanks for your help, I'm hoping to find someone who knew him, but no luck so far.
Hang in there, Paradis. Sometimes these things take awhile.


I served with your father in A troop I was the armorer at the time. I just happen to look in  the computer and saw your post. I'm sure he remembers me we actually shared the same room in the barracks with another guy. SPC Bluebird, if I remember correctly your father was from Main. 

Hi Jorge, thanks for the message, it seems that Dave was right haha.

You're right about my father being from Maine, and he still lives there. He was the state's Legion Commander for a while, but he's since become sort of a travelling Legion spokesperson.

I'll call him tonight and let him know that you remember him, and if he's okay with it I'll send you his number in a private message. He's having knee surgery on Monday so he'll probably be out of touch for a few days, but I'm sure he'd love to hear from you.

Thanks again,


A little over 5 years since the last reply. Not bad! Glad you found somebody!!

:) thanks, I suppose troopers have to be patient sometimes haha.






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.
