Hi Rick,
I live in New Ulm. I googled your location and it looks like you can take a short walk and be in North Dakota. New Ulm is like going back to Germany. We have our own Brewery (Schells/ Grainbelt). Many festivals " Bockfest, Octoberfest, etc." Do not know if you have ever been here. It is situated in the Minnesota River valley and the brewery sits on a hillside. It truly feels like your back in Deutschland . If your ever down here give me a ring and I will give you a tour. I am in the book. Like my wife says" You can always tell a German, but, you can't tell him much.

Do you remember the time your 578 ran away in I troops garage area and there was thick black smoke everywhere I thought the place was buring down....Funniest part was the way it broke that clip board in half (so much for what they trained you to do). finaly got it stoped with someones BDU coat jammed into the intake. Funny now maybe not so much that day..

Welcome to the site glad to have you here. I see you were stationed in Amberg I miss that place and the unit too often. Amazing how we can miss something we could not stand to get awy from isn't it.

Looking forward to your participation here.



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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
