Ron, I see you were RCSM Foglio's secretary.

I have his chrome retirement bayonet from when he left 2ACR and retired. Inside the blood groove is engraved "CSM JOSEPH FOGLIO 002"

@Ron Winship,

Greeting from Old Mission Beach, CA...It looks like you got to Hqs Troop about a year and a half after I bailed. Good to know there's a least one other So Cal Trooper around. I got some pics of the Old SS Kasserne...it looks wierd then I realized ..they took down those walls!

Toujours Pret Ron,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley
