Some events are cancelled: Blackhorse Women’s Group meeting, luncheon and tour, the Silent Auction and the Marty Ognibene Memorial Golf Outing. All other events are on schedule.

The Officers held a conference call May 31 and agreed to continue with the reunion mindful there have been restrictions invoked by the JW that will make this reunion unique for the attendees.

The 11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam & Cambodia was founded in 1984 after 75 names of  Blackhorse Troopers were collected in Washington DC at the dedication of the "Three Fighting Men" statue near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Reunions have been held every year since 1986.  Reunion sites have been: Arlington, TX; Washington, DC; Louisville, KY;  Minneapolis, MN; Sacramento, CA; Philadelphia, PA; San Antonio, TX;  Indianapolis, IN; Colorado Springs, CO; Appleton, WI; Louisville, KY; Las Vegas, NV; New Orleans, LA; San Diego, CA; Buffalo, NY;  Ft. Myers, VA; Nashville, TN; Eugene OR;  Daytona FL; Colorado Springs, CO; Kansas City, MO; Louisville, KY; Chicago, IL; Santa Clara, CA; Washington, DC; and Saint Louis, MO.; Orlando, FL.; Indianapolis, IN.; Las Vegas, NV.; Columbus, GA.; San Antonio, TX; Orlando, FL.; Grand Rapids, MI.; Las Vegas, NV. The 2020 reunion will be held in Indianapolis, IN. and  Dallas, TX. has been chosen for the 2021 reunion.

We have been able to reunite many of our brothers by keeping a computer master file of everyone we've found by their name, squadron and troop and their dates in-country.  We update our rosters continuously to assure they are accurate and complete. We have reunited many buddies this way.

We publish a quarterly newsletter to each member of 11 ACVVC with reunion information, historical stories by our membership and information about our current members and events.  Participation in contributing to the contents of the newsletter is encouraged to all.

We provide scholarships to our K.I.A.’s children and grandchildren as well as children and grandchildren of our membership.  In the past years we have provided over 1,858,000.00 dollars in college scholarships!  This program is one of our most coveted programs helping our children and grandchildren get an education and to become our leaders for the future of our country.

We remember our killed in action who lost their lives in Vietnam and Cambodia each Memorial Day & Veterans Day by placing a wreath at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

February 2, 2021 there will be a placing a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in remembrance of the 120th Anniversary of the 11th US Cavalry.

We continue to search for our brother veterans who served with us in Vietnam and Cambodia through special locators, mailings, handouts, and advertising in veteran newspapers and magazines.  Our goal is to find ALL of our former troopers who served with us and to "Reunite The Regiment" again.

We answered our Country's call and served proudly with the best combat unit to have fought in the Vietnam War.

"War drew us from our homeland in the
sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive
remain in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
and a part of us is with them always."
