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 went through Infantry training at Polk Jun-Jul75. Served with K troop, 2ACR 75-78. Amberg, Camp May, and Camp Rotz. West Germany. We had M551A1 Sheridans, M113A1 PCs and M106 Mortar carriers. Spent about 9 months a year on the border, at Graf or in the field. Mike

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.

The regiment is getting back to it's roots. Dragoons were just horse mobile 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.

I was in K Trp, 3/2 ACR for 4 years 84-88, Amberg, Germany.:wavey: Camp May for the Mortars, and when we weren't there seems like we were always going to Graf or Hohenfels since they were a short roadmarch away. They were close enough I could go there by bicycle when I felt froggy.:supergrin:

2nd ACR May 2000 - Nov 2002

H Co 2/2 (1SG)

I liked Ft Hood's range better but that depended on who was running it that day('92-'97). At least Ft Polk's was consistant with the rules(although it cost a couple of bucks to get in).
