I would like to make contact W/Ernest G. Gillespie (EGG), a drummer in the 61-62 era at Merril Barracks.  He was from Carleston, WV, I recall.

Does anyone remember SSG Williams who was the band leader in 1976?

I played Euphonium in the band from about 3/87-6/88. Also served as a "guinea pig" for a recon platoon that started up!

I was with the band when we flew to England in 1961 at the invitation of LTC Beaty, former RXO.

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.
