Several weeks ago, I hooked up with Tom Dillard and went to the NRA OutdoorShow inPA.along with anothervet friend whoservedin heavy tanks near Frankfurt. Many years ago, I went to visit Jack Palmer, at West Point. He was there for a while teaching armor tactics to cadets.The last time I saw him was in the 80's and hewas living in Lindenhurst, NY.

Gary, Little John (Gates) from second platoon.  I remember you.  Seeing names from the past sure brings back the memories.  I think I remember Hancock and Lafevor also.

Stay well.

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.
