Guys', Toujours Pret

Chief, I sewed that patch on my shirt along with Goldstein Patch and US Army..

Dave, Harry, Sig,and all you troopers, I put my last Veterans Day program on DVD.

It is a great show with My Honor Guard, HS Choral Group, HS ROTC,

and special RETREAT CEREMONY with Flag that was flown over congress and certificate authenticating Flag, our Honor Guard folding it and presenting it to me.

Harold, I see your using an iPhone.  I’m guessing you didn’t use an Apple device to record your videos.  

Comment by Harry Warner on November 18, 2022 at 2:43pm

Harold. NO, they don't load properly.  I get glimpses of a scene, and then it doesn’t download.

Harold, I got the videos but not much I can do with them in their current format. I will keep trying.  Sorry to see you’re not doing the Veteran’s Day ceremony anymore. I know you put a lot of effort and time into it.  Such is the world we live in.

Thank you 2nd ACR troopers for your birthday wishes. Because of heavy politics and control issues after 7 years I have retired from our Veteran's Committee I am going to attempt to get some movie clips on here if not I will email to George or Harry if you can convert them

let me know if you received the clips and can you show them on this site

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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
