Hey Bob,

I don't know if you knew Col. Joe Krawczyk has terminal cancer. He doesn't have long, if you want to contact him.

Bob, yes we still have a Cav store, but it is a new store under different management. Not run by the association anymore.

Yep that was him, Bullard. That guy was a terror on one of his drunk nights, but I guess we were all pretty wild when we weren't in the field.

The only person I remember at the motor pool was this big ole Indian everyone called Chief. That guy could pick up a 50 gal can of 30 wt oil, but he didn't speak much.

No Bob, not tomorrow.  Although I belong to the "waiting list" I WAS able to get two tickets for both games.  Problem is my wife who is a nurse works every other weekend and this weekend, when she is off, has to take my step son back to school.  I would liked to go this weekend but I can't make it happen - I was entitled to two tickets and there is three of us - me and two young boys (9 and 11).  It should be a good game - enjoy.

Hi Bob, nice to hear from you and hope that the cold weather is not to bad up there. Thank you for remembering by Birthday and for you wishes. Please keep in touch and God Bless. Here is my regular e-mail:  rvpsabot@comcast.net




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.
