Enjoyed border patrols! It was fun driving around the country side, easier life style at the border camps and the food was much better than compared to Pond Barracks. Amberg was a cool town to be stationed for those three years.
Tell us a little about you now.
I am a Chief in the U.S. Geological Survey. I have been with the USGS since 1980 and plan on retiring January 2014. I enjoy sailing and keep a boat on Lake Eire. I live in Columbus, OH. I am happily married and have two grown sons.

Gregory, Yes sir. That would be me! I remember Delarosa inviting us over to his place. Very nice gesture. He was a good guy. I remember he often called his folks 'hoss'. Amberg was a cool place to spend time while serving. 

Hope all is well with you and great hearing from you!

Hi Richard,  were you the driver on Plt. Sgt.  Delarosa Sheridan "Cosmic Wheels"?  I was the loader and gunner for a short time.  We went had lunch at Sgt. Delarosa's home once.

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.
