Hey Bill.  Yes, It's me.  How are you doing?  Believe it or not, I'm still in the Army and I'm currently deployed.  Email me at redcatcher40@hotmail.com and we'll catch up.

Yes--all is well here. And you're right--I graduated from OSUT on 5 June 1986--25 years ago and it seems like yesterday.  From there, I went right to L Trp,3/2 ACR. I'm thinking of taking my boys down to Knox for the 25th anniversary of my graduation.  I haven't been there since '97.

I went through B-5C-1 from Feb-Jun 86.  I was in the other platoon though.  My Drill Sergeants were SFC Morales, SFC Bingham and SGT Costello.  I remember you though, as well as SFC Hunter, SSG Duran, SSG Mayberry and SSG Washington from the other platoons.  I ran into SGT Costello in '92 out at Ft Lewis.  He also had a 2nd ACR combat patch, but I don't remember what Squadron he was in.  It wasn't 1st Squadron, otherwise I would have known.  When did you get out and what do you do now?  As you can see, Im still serving.  I'm made MSG this past December--finally.

Were you a Drill Sergeant in '86?

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.
