is it possible to share that M1 photo you got of me and Buldoc. It would be nice to have a full size for my collection.

I was in the ROC-83 to 86, I am sure I ran into you at one of the border camps.  I believe Bob Wottlin was the Border Inspector when I was there. He took over for Cpt Kruger or SFC Jesse Legette, Then Cpt Ponder was there when I left in may of 86. I am currently living in Georgetown Texas, retired from the 2nd ACR C troop, Ft Polk in 2000

Did look into it. He was killed in Mound City KS, South of Kansas City in 2008. Had two sons, all were involved with the Scouts. Oldest son shot him through a door inside their farm house. He retired in 1996 as a Major. Buried in Houston TX.

Its a shame a Cav. Trooper died this way

Hey Dave

I can't believe I found you. I saw that picture of you and me and it brought back alot of memories.

Ryan Meyer, the curator of the museum, was looking over the photos here on Dragoon Base when he spotted that one. E-mailed me to see if I could contact the owner, etc.


The museum is a long way from being open. They are renovating an old German military horse stable for the museum, and it needs a LOT of work. They were hoping to have it done by the time the Regiment returns from Afghanistan. I'm going over this summer when they have all their ceremonies if everything works out.

Hey Dave,

Is there any chance of getting a high resolution scan of your CSSR Patrol photo sent to me, and any story/info you would like to add? The 2d Cavalry Museum they are building at Rose Barracks in Vilseck wants to use that photo in their Cold War section.

Yep, a cold one (or two--as in Border Camp limit) sounds good. Give me a call when you get in town DSN 430-7683 or COM 0711-680-7683. Looking forward to it.

Dave, Greetings from Germany (again--hell, I've now got a #8 on my overseas service ribbon (24 years/w/22 in Germany). Still Soldiering on with Special Operations Command Europe in Stuttgart (second time). Yeah, going for 30--why not? Was searching the web for some old pictures of Camp Hof and stumbled upon the Dragoonbase site. So, as would be the transmittion from the reaction force to the BOC during CEOI call-sign/freqency turnover, "request to enter the net, over." Take care and LMK when you're back in Deutschland so we can link up for a beir. John



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.
