Curtis, It is the same Sgt McCurley; I believe that he had his m114 souped up, too. I thought I heard a cam in it, plus it had  some extra "breathing" equipment on it too.

Curtis, Thank You for the Birthday Wish, I will be 60 years old  on February 11th. I bet we are very close in age - how old are you now?

Did you ever think you'd make it this far?

Your description of your home sounds terriffic. I never lived in the South, except Missouri, but I was an Ocassional Visitor to Louisiana (Sportsmans Paradise) especially New Orleans (to party when I was in 30-s - 40's. So I can kind of visualize your place.

I especially admire the Cajun Lifestyle with their respect for and caretaking of the environment. If I had lived in Louisiana, I'd probably be an old Coon-ass hunter, fisherman, with alot more knowledge about the waterways than I have now.

Best Wishes, Brother

I wish someone would have warned me not to be on post that weekend, I was clearing post, Trippin on A and they gave me a .45 with real bullets and said that I was hallway guard.

I remember that house we used to stay in for a month up on the border, it was somewhere around Regensberg I think. Sorry  to hear of the death of fred harris, I would really like to get aholt of Mackey and Alpine. Mackey somewheres in Georgia and  Alpine was from  Rock Island Illinoise [I will never forget that] [Mackey was from Republic Michigan, and RC Johndson was from TExas, Jake was from MOntana].

Please post all the pics you have - If I see myself I will vote you in as President of the USA. 





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.
