Sig,

We had our Veterans Day Program 11/11 and I did something this year very different this year.  A woman told the story of her husband getting shot up in Vietnam and later dying of Agent Orange.  As she left the stage she hollored, "I wish I could bring him home."

Lights go out and spot goes on a girl from the HS Glee Club and she sings, "Bring him home" from Les Miz

I now have 6 American flags, 5 unit flags, 1 MIA_POW flag, a 6 squad HS ROTC,

Just got an e-mail from Gene Gunia. Last week he lost his wife, Alice. They had been together 61 years.

I'm sure he could use a little support from his Dragoon Base family, as the quiet at his house is really getting to him.

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.
