Hey John, thanks for accepting. I am slowly connecting with people that I served with. Chief Crump sent me contact info. Really enjoying looking at photos and showing my grown kids. How are you doing? Did you stay in military or move onto another profession. I left after 9 years and am happily retired and living in Washington state

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.
