We received two cards in the mail today from Theresa Montana, daughter of Platoon Sergeant Harold L. Montana who was killed in Vietnam on January 15, 1967, while serving with I Troop, 3/11. She and her family asked that the messages be passed along.

An Open Letter to the Blackhorse Families

A card for the men:

"Thank God for Veterans like You!"  Theresa's handwritten note: For all the men who have served in any way, we thank you for your courage and dedication to our country. I would like to personally thank all of you when I came to the reunion in Columbus, Georgia. When I got a hug from you all it was like hugging my father
. I cherish those days forever in my heart. You all brought my father's spirit back to life. Sharing all of your stories of you guys and I thank you again.

Much love and prayers from the family of Harold L Montana, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment of South Vietnam.  15 Jan 1967. (Please share this with all the men of the 11th Cavalry)

A card for the women:

"For Woman Who Served Her Country Well" Theresa's handwritten note: For all the women who served in any way! We thank you for your courage and dedication to our country. Have a blessed Veterans Day. Wishing all of your families to be blessed today and every day. Letting you all know I'll be thinking of you all. Much love and Prayers. The family of Harold L. Montana, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment of South Vietnam, 15 Jan 1967. (Please share this with all the women of the 11th Cavalry)

Richard B . "Rick" Organ was a member of PSG Montana's platoon. According to Rick, he was usually picked to walk point on their patrols. On Jan 15, Harold Montana switched the order and walked point instead of Rick.

For years Rick has been carrying a photo of Harold Montana in his wallet. For years he has tried to find Harold Montana's family. A few years ago, with the help of a friend, he found the family.

Rick, Theresa and other family members were able to meet for the first time at the 2015 reunion in Columbus, GA. It was a very special meeting for them. They share a very special bond.

THIS IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL HOMEPAGE OF THE 11TH ARMORED CAVALRY'S VETERANS OF VIETNAM & CAMBODIA

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. The 2018 reunion will be held in Grand Rapids, MI., Las Vegas, NV.  has been chosen for the 2019 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, our 11 ACVVC members, and the children of our membership.  In the past years, we have provided over $1,294,000.00 in college scholarships to help defray the expensive costs of a college education.  Scholarships are for $4,000 per individual.  This program is one of our most coveted programs, helping our children 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, 2016 there will be a placing a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in remembrance of the 115th 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."
