received my DVD of the documentary yesterday and played it
immediately. What a great job. Blackhorse Productions did a
task worthy of the History Channel (the final version was cut
some as to allow it to fit with TV programming). Kudos
especially go out to Otis Carey who worked day to day with the
production company and who got many approvals for the use of
copyrighted songs (Credience Clearwater and others)and
Without his participation, there would not have been a
documentary of us. Eric Newton, our Public Information Officer
and a director of 11 ACVVC was also instrumental in getting
the documentary completed.
I'm placing this on our Message Board so other folks outside
our Blackhorse Family will know about it and possibly want
copies. Our Quartermaster (Rod George) has copies in VHS or
DVD formats and they are available now. To our Blackhorse
brothers who didn't get a copy, please order it now. You will
be extremely pleased with it's quality and depiction of our
great Regiment. There is some new film footage of the early
years of the 11th US Cavalry and of our tour in Vietnam that
I'd not ever seen. I do believe we'll see it on TV sometime in
the future and if so, 11 ACVVC will get a percentage of the
monies made to go to our Scholarship Program. GET A COPY OF
OUR DOCUMENTARY NOW !!
Texas Good 'ol USA

version of the documentary and it is magnificent. I had
previewed the director’s copy several times before Neal
McDonough of the television series Boomtown did the narration.
His voice makes a commanding difference and put the icing on
This film makes some serious statements about our involvement
in Vietnam and is destined to bring about a new and
well-deserved respect for the service and sacrifice of our
My copy came direct from the studio and the others are on the
way to our Quartermaster Store who will ship as soon as they
arrive. I am certain all Blackhorse troopers will be proud to
have this film shown to their friends and family. It is as
good or better than anything I have seen on the History

of the ones we see on the history channel.
