    Anybody ever in the 2nd ACR ? what about when they were at Ft Polk. Just curious, I did 6 years with them all at Ft Polk. 1st Squadron HHT for 3 years and 3rd Squadron L Troop and M company for the other 3. Never me a soldier who like polk but me. They had the best MWR range in the conus

    2ACR is in Vilseck now. Just moved there(unit used to be 1/25 from Lewis).

    I'm at Polk now, with JRTC, and I must say you're right about the MWR range:thumbsup: .

    If you go out to the MWR range, Tell Jim I said hello. I built the 5 stand range there.

    Ex 509er here. Was at Polk from June of 1995 until Novmber 1998. The Medevac was my last unit before I ETSed. Polk was not all bad, kind of special to me, my Father was there in the WARM summer months of 1969, we laugh about Polk quit a bit! Lovely Place.

    I was with the 2d ACR from November of 89 to the end of March 92, in the 502d MI Co. I was in Nurnberg at Merrill Barracks the whole time, except for a four and half month side trip to Southwest Asia. You probably heard about it already, so I won't bore you with the details.

    I proudly served with Lightning(L) Troop, 3rd Squadron / 2D ACR from 1990-1992. We were at Pond Barracks in Amberg, Germany. After Desert Storm the Regiment got sent stateside to Fort Lewis. I went to Fort Bliss, TX and served with the 3D ACR. I never got to serve in the Light Cavalry. I am glad to hear the 2D Dragoons are back in Germany. Lots of good history there.

    Not assigned to 2ACR but I did support 2/2 cav and 3/2 cav as a TOW/Dragon tech DS/GS. My unit was 45 ord, a weird setup we didn't belong to a Battalion but directly to Army. I was stationed at Sudcacern (SP)in Nuremburg 84-85.

    2ACR is now 2CR. The original 2ACR was rebadged as 4BDE 2ID and is a stryker unit at Fort Lewis. The unit that is currently 2CR is stationed in Vilsec, Germany and was formerly known as 1BDE 25ID. It is not a new stryker unit it was actually the second stryker unit formed and deployed to Iraq in 2004. I may be a little biased in this but it is easily the best stryker BDE in the Army. And by the way it is a cavalry unit in name only, it is really a infantry brigade with 3 batallions of infantry.

    Hey Rabbit, I knew you guys. I was detached from the FSB at Illesheim, and our TOW Maint guys used to visit your K. We ran MAIT teams to all the ranges for ORD, including Erlangen.
     
  18. I was there in the pouring rain also while we reflagged,...

    Thank God Lieutenant General Dubik made a long ceromony short!,.. I think everyone loved him after that...

    Heh, this was my favorite assignment out of my ten years of Active Duty... don't miss Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels though.
