   Welcome to the sight Tom.  I was also in A troop from Aug 71 to Mar 72, so we probably worked together or even spoke, but to save my life I can't remember names very well. You have any pictures?  Post them please.

  I worked closely with Harry Harriman from New Jersey. We operated or thought we operated the radar machine until some major came to inspect the OP outside of Wieden and he really got on our case. We were not trained on the machine so we just turned it on  and heard the noices of traffic on the other side of the border. Do you remember Daniel Counter, he played the guitar and liked to sing.

   O.k. friend, welcome and we hope you can find some of you buddies.  From Baja in Mexico, Ray g.

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.
