"Some of the soldiers in the 9th Infantry Regiment came out of the 12th Cavalry Regiment of the First Cavalry Division. This division later distinguished itself in the Vietnam War. My father was one of the ones who was transferred. . His full name was HANFORD MAURICE RICE. His military number was 18 011 320. He joined the U.S. Army on 20 July 1940 in the 12th Cavalry Regiment of the 1st Cavalry Division. He joined in Yoakum, Texas. By October 1941 the 12th Cavalry Regiment had been disbanded and he was transferred to the 9th Infantry Regiment of the 2nd Infantry Division. He was a volunteer and not a draftee. He was in A Troop when he was in the 12th Cavalry Regiment He had a tattoo on his shoulder of a horse's head with crossed sabers under it and under that there was the inscription that read: 12th Calvary USA. I asked him how and where he got it. He told me that one night he and his buddies got a week-end pass and they all went to Mexico as they were stationed in Brownsville, Texas, I believe, so all they had to do was go over the border. They all got drunk- and they all got the same tattoo- but he said he was so drunk that he did not remember getting it. I was just looking at some additional records of my father's - the year was 1941. The 12th Calvary was being disbanded- according to the 12th cav. records it was totally disbanded and went out of existence on 28 Feb. 1943. But then it was reorganized and came back to life on 4 Dec. 1943. The men in that regiment were transferred to the 2nd Infantry Division."
