Happy Birthday!

And special greetings to the soldiers of...

...where the metal meets the meat.

Hubby's worn 6 of those patchs, me 1 :)

Thanks for the reminder ! Liked your birthday greeting so much that I put in one of my own, and linked to yours.

And he probably wore one or more of these patches, back when the Army had 18 divisions and before Clinton got done slashing the military.

5th Infantry Division (Mechanized)
6th Infantry Division (Light)
7th Infantry Division (Light)
8th Infantry Division (Mechanized)
9th Infantry Division (Motorized)
24th Infantry Division (Mechanized)
2nd Armored Division
3rd Armored Division

2 of mine are on this list: 5th Inf Div and 2nd Armd Div .. the 5th was one helluva infantry division and I never thought I'd see the day that 2 Armd Div's colors would be cased .. sad, sad.

Thanks for the link, El Jefe :)

Yeah, we need those divisions, damn that Slick anyway !

An atrocity that 2nd Armd. Div. was stood down. Ditto the 5th and 24th Inf. Divs.
