Brand, Germany, August, 1974: A jeep from the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment drives down a narrow forest road on an inspection tour along the border with Czechoslovakia. Life for soldiers from the regiment's 1st Squadron, responsible for patrolling nearly 50 miles of the border, was about to get much better thanks to renovations at Camp Gates that included showers in the barracks and improved dining facilities.
