Melvin, I was in I Troop and also in G company till they change the Cav. unit designations.  I served with the unit from 59-60 and again from 62-64.  Your name sounds familiar, Trying to place you.  My old memory has lost a lot with old age.

Maybe you can help me on an item, I have been trying to remember.  Do you recall when we sent a group down to Bad Tolz, I believe it was 63. I went down with the group to train with the 10th SF.  I have photo's from the trip.

Welcome, Melvin. You and I overlapped our times in Amberg. I got there in 1962, left in 1964. Please join us in the Oldtimers. Got any stories or photos?




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.
