The following photos were copied from SPEARHEAD – 2ND ARMORED RIFLE BN, 48TH INFANTRY yearbook of 1959.  The book was lent  by Jim MacClay and is in the 3AD Association's library.  I made a copy of all relevant pages, and sent a set to the active 1-48th INF at Ft. Wood, MO for the Regimental Museum.  If any Dragoon wants a copy, please contact me for information.  It has group photos of each platoon in the 2nd Bn in 1959.
