Good morning Phillip, or do you prefer Phil?
The names you mention do not ring a bell, but not surprising after all these years. Did you get the chance to look at the photos on my page? They are the only ones I have from Germany. Did you take any while over there? If you need any help, my # is on my page.

PHILLIP, welcome aboard.  I am trying to place you, which platoon were you in?  I had the Scout Section, 2nd Platoon, I Troop from 62-64, second tour there, first was 59-61.  If you have any photos please list them on your profile.  Again Welcome Aboard.

I have some photos in my profile.  In 63  there a was a group that went to Bad Tolz, do you recall it.  I think it was in 63.  Also were you in our troop photo there in Amberg?

I was in Amberg from 1962-1964....There are pictures on my page. I'm sure we had to have crossed paths at some point. There are several others here from that time period. Make yourself 'ta home here. If you have any pictures please try to post them. Also, please come join us in the Oldtimers. If you need any help getting around, just shout out. Somebody will have an answer.

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.
