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.
