Just as a reminder, September 2012 was the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. The one day battle was the bloodiest day in our Civil War. Gettysburg next year will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the July 1-3, 1863 battle.

Monday, July 25, 2011, the 2d Stryker Cavalry Regiment will celebrate the grand opening of their new museum at Rose Barracks, Vilseck, Germany. This museum promises to have world-class exhibits found nowhere else in the military community.
My dad’s 2d Cavalry bier stein from 1954 will be used in the opening ceremony. I broke a small hole in the fine porcelain bottom when I was little from dropping an old 1800′s silver dollar in it. A German bier is to be poured in the stein and allowed to drain out the hole, for the troopers who have gone before us.
