Hi Arthur,
I am sure I should remember you. I saw your comment On Krebs.
He was the worst NCO I ever served under. Boot shining backstabbing
Luckily the Officers valued me or he would have ruined me.

Sorry for long delay in replying.  The day after your post I broke my right hand in a bike accident and am only just getting my act back together.


Yes, I turned over DCo to CPT Skinner.  I've got a pic of the change of command up at Camp Gates with some others I just put up.

 You are absolutely correct Top Rentiera was TOPS.

 Being in the CAV and 2nd ACR was the best. It had a dedicated cadre of proffesionals and all around good people.

 I remember one time when we were on reaction we had an alert and had to go to our alert area and you were the temporary TC and I was your temporary gunner.

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.
