on 17th of July we lost one of our - Sgt.Steve Z one of our best of the best mechanic and M-88 recovery vehicle operator I wish to share with you, two great letters that Lt Col. Warren Wagner (Ret) wrote, are one time CO of Delta company not only does it reflect service of Steve. It also reflects about how all of us felt serving in 2nd Cav. So many years ago and still serving in our hearts and mind. Dragoon for life Chief

Dave, Happy Birthday.  Sorry it’s late.  Hope all is well by you and yours.  Doing good here.  Looking forward to snow.

Frank, the info on the pins seem to be all the same.  I appreciate all the responses.  As to the trailer night light, accident happen.  If you want, send me your mailing address and if I see another I would be happy to send it.  I didn't realize it had been 6 years. Having more than one guiding light is not a bad thing.

2d DRAGOONS

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.
