It is a good video.....and nice of you to think of me when you posted it.
That being said......
The Cav called units like mine "Funny Farm Birds" as they thought we were 2nd Field Force units and of course being "....not Cav" were somehow of a lesser class operation. Mind you....we carried our missions....and CAV missions w hen they fell on their butts maintenance wise....but then I guess we are all allowed to think what we want. My Claim to Flame occurred during a Cav mission I was flying that had been turned down by Cav birds....as they thought the weather was too bad and had gone home for the day.
We used to look at that big ol' Yellow Cav Patch....and opine "The Horse they never rode, the Line they never held.....and the color for the reason why!"
We defined a "Two Time Loser" as a guy with a Cav patch on each shoulder!
(Point of fact.....The US Army Unit patch is worn on the Left Shoulder....any unit you served in during Combat...the patch can be worn on the right shoulder."
Actually....good fellows the 1st Cav....as long as you remember they were cramming two gallon heads into ten gallon Stetsons and you kept a good grip on your wallet and beer.
I wore this patch on each shoulder.....
I could have worn this one as well.....but try to forget my time at that Unit.
This is the Regimental Patch that means the most to me as we spent a lot of time supporting the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment.
