   Hello David. You came in a month before I shipped out in March. I was radar operator and spent a lot of time at Camp Pitman. Got any pictures?  If you do, hope you add them to the post. Welcome friend.

Welcome to Dragoon Base, David. Looks like you and I spent a few months together on the Rock. I was in C Trp Jan 74 to Feb 75.

Jeff Havens is a member here, but you are more likely to find him on Facebook. I met him at the 2d Cavalry Association reunion a few years back and I believe he will be attending again in April. I'll give him a holler on Facebook and let him know you are here. In the meantime, here is his Dragoon Base profile....http://dragoonbase.com/profile/JeffreyCHavens





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.
