Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

I have a list of people,
All written in a book-
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look

And that is when I realize
That those name are all a part-
Not in the book that they are written in
But of my very Heart.

For each name stands for someone
That has crossed my path at sometime-
And in that meeting they have become
A treasured friend of mine.

And the people you have met
The years can not erase-
The memory of a pleasant word
Or of a friendly face.

So when I send a e-mail
That is addressed to you-
It's because you are on that 'Special list'
Of folk I am indebted to.

And you are one of several folk
In time past that I met-
And happen to be one of those
I don't ever want to forget.

And whether I have know you
For many years of few-
In some way you have had a part
In shaping the things I do.

So this is the Spirit of Christmas
That forever still endures-

May it leave the richest blessing
In the hearts of you and yours.

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.
