The 11thACVVC ( 11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia ) is an organization of "Blackhorse" Troopers who served with the regiment in Vietnam and Cambodia.
This page serves as an information source for activities of our organization and as a rallying point for all who served.
If you are new to the web or simply want an explanation of what this site is all about you might want to go HERE first.
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 Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
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. Access to the Master File is available on the link to the left. There you can search by name, unit, dates of service etc. for members of our organization. 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 $85,000.00 in college scholarships to help defray the expensive costs of a college education. Scholarships are for $2,000 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 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.
I was that which others cared not to be.
I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing.
I reluctantly, accepted the thought of eternal loneliness - should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror, felt the chill of fear,
warmed to the touch of love.
I have hoped, pained, cried. But, foremost,
lived in times others would say best forgotten.
At the very least, in later days,
I will be able to say with greatest pride,
That I was indeed, a Soldier!
