Frank D. Maughan April 27, 2000
B Troop 2nd Platoon Leader Jun 66 to Dec 66 Just received The Bridgehead, & found, on page 13, the story regarding the QuarterHorse...What a relief!!! I'd been lead to believe that the Squadron had nothing going on. The article mentioned trying to get information regarding the current QuarterHorse...I'm in e-mail contact with DARKHORSE 6, while he & DARKHORSE are deployed in Kosovo. Chapter 995 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (Northern Utah) as a service project is keeping in contact with the single service members of that troop, while they are deployed. The current Sqdn Cdr is LTC Hugh McMaster, who still leads the remainder of the squadron in Germany, while DARKHORSE is deployed. Let me know if I can be of service to you, regarding information of others from the Squadron?? I tried to enter the database tonight & was denied access (they must have a copy of my security clearance!!). Let me know how I may help...Frank Maughan, Dragoon Bravo 26 Provisional Zippo PltLdr Jan '67, Dragoon Charlie 36 (Jan '67-June '67)
