One last work event on Monday and then we are clearing 2d Cavalry Regiment! I cant wait to get back to the convienences of the good-ole USofA!
WARHORSE! June marks the official beginning of our 14th Cavalry Regiment Association membership campaign. The 14th Cavalry Association is one of the most active and dedicated group of military members, active and retired, that I have ever seen. Their contributions to the Squadron have been amazing over the past 13 years. From dedicating Sabers to the families of our fallen Troopers, to subsidizing Squadron events like Spur Dinners or Squadron Balls, they are always there for us. It's time to saddle up with the 14th Cavalry! If you have served a day or 8 years, you are eligible to become a member. The connections and support available in this group of tallented veterans and active duty Troopers is amazing. We will conclude our membership campaign on 18 June, with the Squadron Spur Ride. Saddle up with the Warhorse and the 14th Cavalry!
The Royal Yeomary Band did a good job at the D-Day parade today in France. One question occurs. The Royal Yeomanry is a light cavalry regiment of the Royal Armoured Corps. Why did they perform the infantry "last post", instead of the cavalry version, which is quite different?
The 1st Cavalry Regiment is a United States Army unit which has its antecedents in the early 19th century in the formation of the United States Regiment of Dragoons. To this day, the unit's special designation is "First Regiment of Dragoons".[1]
BG Benjamin Grierson organized the 10th U.S. Cavalry, one of two mounted regiments composed of black enlisted men and white officers, called the Buffalo Soldiers. This assignment also made him unpopular with other officers, including his superior, General Philip Henry Sheridan, because of his support for and trust in his troops. His sympathy and courtesy to Native American tribes also led to questions about his judgment. "The only White officer who supports the unit is Regimental Commanding Officer Colonel Benjamin Grierson. Ostracized by other officers for his enthusiastic command of the African-American troops, Grierson believes in the abilities, dedication, and record of performance of the Buffalo Soldiers and declines offers to lead at any other post. General Pike offers to relieve Grierson 'of this self-imposed exile and have him commanding a real cavalry regiment within a month,' but Grierson refuses" — Turner Network Television's documentary, "Buffalo Soldiers".

Waking from deep amnesia 100 years later !!!TIMES OF INDIA: Manimugdha S Sharma NEW DELHI: Popular culture in India has glorified the martial traditions of the Rajputs. One of which was saka, in which fighting men of a defeated state rode out for a final, suicidal battle dressed in yellow. That antiquated Rajput code has survived in the yellow ceremonial uniform of one of Indian Army's oldest cavalry regiments, the 1st Horse or Skinner's Horse. Over two centuries after it was raised by a "white Mughal" — James Skinner — who was denied a commission in the Honourable East India Company's army owing to his mixed blood (his mother was Rajput), very little of the regiment is known in India outside the armed forces. In the West, though, it continues to fire up popular imagination. A British group, adoring Skinner's Horse. For the last six years or so, a group of some 30 Englishmen and women — all heritage enthusiasts — has dedicated itself to the "recreation of the dash and glamour of one of the most fa ...
On this morning in 1944 Harvey S. Olson of the 4th Cavalry was the first pesrson on the shore of Utah beach, he swam ashore at 0430. He went on to fight in the Battle of the Bulge, Hurtgen Forest, and the Rhine River crossing. Makes me proud to be a member of the 4th Cavalry Regiment.
Remembering D-Day and my Uncle Frank who served in WWII. Though he passed just 1 month ago at 94, I would like to share again his distinguished service record that included many flights during the Normandy Invasion. Thank you Uncle Frank for your service. Frank was born in Brooklyn, NY and lived in Mountain Lakes, NJ before moving to Boonton, where he has resided for most of his life. It was in 1940 when living in Mountain Lakes, NJ 18 year old Frank enlisted in the 102nd Cavalry Regiment, NJ Army National Guard. The Regiment was called into Federal Service in January 1941. Private Wiswall was a horse cavalryman in B Troop where he made many lasting friends.

1) February 17th to 24th, 1984 in Haryana -Indira Gandhi warned the Sikhs living in Punjab that they would be treated just like the Sikhs outside of Punjab. Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale Jee told her that Sikhs are not cowards, one Sikh can take on 20 Hindus. A case was registered against Sant Jee for these comments, but nothing was said to Indira who openly and publicly threatened Sikhs with violence and told them to be ready to face the consequences of their actions. From February 17th to 2th4, Sikhs were killed, dozens of Gurdwaras were burned. and hundreds of shops owned by Sikhs were looted and plundered by Hindus under the orders of Bhajan Lal, Chief Minister of Haryana.

The Boss here... as you all know I'm a combat veteran and all vets are near and dear to my heart. But the greatest gift of all is that a man lay down his life for you and his country. This IS what a hero looks like. Not a football player, a pop star, or a politician, but a fallen soldier. These hero's have Mom's and Dad's. Brother's and Sisters. Friends and other family. They were here and now they are gone... but NEVER forgotten. On January 17, 2014, the Glenridge Gators lost one of its alumni swimmers, SPC Andrew Sipple, who died in service to our country while deployed in Afghanistan. At the time of his death, Andrew was a member of the Cobra Company within the 1st Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team,1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas. Many ECB members were affected by Andrew's death as he lived basically right across the street. Help us remember Andrew and other fallen soldiers by helping those left behind.

Buck Jones (December 12, 1891 – November 30, 1942) was an American motion picture star of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, known for his work starring in many popular western movies. In his early film appearances, he was billed as Charles Jones. Charles Frederick Gebhart was born on the outskirts of Vincennes, Indiana on December 12, 1891. (Some sources erroneously indicate December 4, 1889, but Jones's marriage license and his military records confirm the 1891 date.In 1907, Jones joined the US Army a month after his sixteenth birthday: his mother had signed a consent form that gave his age as eighteen. He was assigned to Troop G, 6th Cavalry Regiment, and was deployed to the Philippine islands in October, 1907, where he served in combat and was wounded during the Moro Rebellion. Upon his return to the U.S. in December, 1909, he was honorably discharged at Fort McDowell, California. Jones had an affection for racecars and the racing industry, and became close friends with early racecar driver Harry Stillman ...
Sam . Remember a few months back we had a discussion about the 12th. Cav. Reg. I found this on the web. See this page. L OWENS RA 52535804. SGT E- 5. 1St. Cav. Div. 12th Cav. Reg. 3rd. Recon squadron. Attached to the 3rd. Armored Div. Army Scout. 2 February 1901, Congress authorized the organization of the Twelfth Regiment of Cavalry, Army of the United States. Under this authority, the regiment was formed at Fort Sam Houston, Texas on 8 February 1901. From 1901 until 1911, the regiment served posts in Texas, Georgia, and the Philippines. During World War II the 12th Cavalry served as an infantry regiment within the 1st Cavalry Division. The regiment was deactivated prior to the 1st Cavalry Division's service in the Korean War, but its lineage was resurrected in with the creation in 1957 of the Combat Arms Regimental System, in which the battalions listed below were created. After Operation Iraqi Freedom II, the 12th Cavalry Regiment underwent a major transition as elements from 2/7CAV, 1/9CAV, and 3/8CA ...

On This Day (5/5/1877): In 1877 Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux Sitting Bull refused to surrender to US troops and led his band across the border into Saskatchewan, Canada. He remained in exile for many years near Wood Mountain, refusing a pardon and the chance to return. In 1881 hunger and cold eventually forced Sitting Bull, his family, and nearly 200 other Sioux in his band to return to the United States and surrender. He is notable in American and Native American history for his role in the major victory at the Battle of the Little Bighorn against Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment on June 25, 1876, where Sitting Bull's premonition of defeating the cavalry became reality.
This is Jackie Robinson on a horse. Today is Jackie Robinson Day, marking the day he became the first African-American in Major League Baseball when he played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers April 15, 1947. Did you know Robinson was stationed at Fort Riley in the early 1940s? He was drafted in 1942 and assigned to a segregated Army cavalry unit, the 9th Cavalry Regiment, making him part of the historic "Buffalo Soldiers." Robinson attended Officer Candidate School at Fort Riley and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in January of 1943. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 1944. (What is strange to me is ,the best black roll models for black youth or any race of youth say less and do more. And the ones that talk loud /shout and point blame. white people call "Black Leaders". Jackie Robinson and other great men like him motivated other young men want to step up without a hand out. Jessie and Al made young men feel they needed a hand out to get up.

Evet beyler başlıyoruz ;) Debrecen vs DVTK This is the semi final first leg of the Hungarian Cup between Debrecen and DVTK. Debrecen have won 6 of their last 7 home games and amongst these wins there have been some comfortable margins. Away from home, DVTK have only won 2 of their last 10. In the last 6 meetings between the two sides with Debrecen at home, Debrecen have won all the meetings - so must be very strong favourites to win this game. They'll want to wrap the game up before the second leg so should come out here with strong intent.

If you know anything about the history of Poland, NATO better get off of their dumb *** and send at least an Armored Division, a Cavalry Regiment, and a forward Corps Headquarters to NATO Eastern Europe to prevent WW3. "NATO will increase its military presence in Poland within the next few weeks in order to calm fears in Eastern European countries for their security following Russia’s annexation of Ukraine's Crimea, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Saturday. Speaking three days after NATO foreign ministers met in Brussels to discuss reinforcing the alliance’s defenses among its eastern European members Tusk said the stronger "military presence" would be "visible" in the coming days and weeks. "The discussion is not about if, but rather about the scale, pace and some technical aspects of strengthening Poland's security," he told the Polish broadcaster TVN."

The Philippine government fielded only one cavalry regiment, the 1st Cavalry Regiment of the 1st Regular Division. It was established in September 1936, originally as a presidential guard, but saw action in Bataan during the Second Great War. In 1942, it suffered the fate that also befell the 26th Cavalry of the Philippine Scouts, and many other mounted regiments all over the world: with provisions running low, the horses were butchered to feed the starving men. I post this with you in mind, Michelle, knowing that you are fully aware of my obsession with mounted troops.
The Daily Teaspoon. The Ukraine. There has been kind of a blackout the past few hours on what is taking place on the Russian Ukraine border. The last reliable information has Russian troops in position to cross the border, the Europeans blathering around like *** and the Americans are just clueless. Yesterday Sec. of Defense was holding down the fort while the Secret Service was out looking for the Sec. of State John Kerry. It appears that Sec. Kerry was located and the White Housed said he would go to the Ukraine on Tuesday. I'm not sure why but he is going. Lets recap here what is going on. First off the Russians cleaned up and sobered up 150,000 troops for the recently completed Olympic games held in Sochi.

1943 – U.S. and Australian land-based planes begin an offensive against a convoy of Japanese ships in the Bismarck Sea, in the western Pacific. On March 1, U.S. reconnaissance planes spotted 16 Japanese ships en route to Lae and Salamaua in New Guinea. The Japanese were attempting to keep from losing the island and their garrisons there by sending 7,000 reinforcements and aircraft fuel and supplies. But a U.S. bombing campaign, beginning March 2 and lasting until the March 4, consisting of 137 American bombers supported by U.S. and Australian fighters, destroyed eight Japanese troop transports and four Japanese destroyers. More than 3,000 Japanese troops and sailors drowned as a consequence, and the supplies sunk with their ships. Of 150 Japanese fighter planes that attempted to engage the American bombers, 102 were shot down. It was an utter disaster for the Japanese–the U.S. 5th Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force dropped a total of 213 tons of bombs on the Japanese convoy. British Prime Mi ...

More than 250 Australian Defence Force personnel returned from Uruzgan, Afghanistan. Saturday's parade marked the official end of Australia's active involvement in the Afghanistan war. The day began with a march through Darwin's CBD before dignitaries, Defence Force personnel and their families moved to the Great Hall in the Northern Territory Parliament building. The parade was led by the women and men of the Combined Team Uruzgan rotations four and five who were responsible for mentoring Afghan security forces. They were followed by the 2nd Cavalry Regiment task force, which provided security for the final withdrawal of Australian forces. Mr Abbott also thanked the troops for their role in the construction of 26 girls' schools, 200 kilometres of sealed roads and building civil services in the country. "We mourn the 40 who did not return. We grieve with the more than 250 with serious injuries and we acknowledge the unseen wounds of thousands.

On December 21, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law the award recognizing “…such petty officers, seamen, landsmen, and marines as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry and other seamen-like qualities…,” now known as the Medal of Honor. Among the many recipients of interest to “Wild West” readers: —William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody in 1872, for “gallantry in action” as a civilian scout for the 3rd Cavalry Regiment. His name was removed from the list in 1917 when Congress changed the standards for the award, but he was reinstated in 1989. —Chief (William) Alchesay, a White Mountain Apache and Indian Scout, for “gallant conduct during campaigns and engagements with Apaches.” He was instrumental in U.S. relations with Geronimo during the Indian Wars and tried to convince him to surrender peacefully; they remained lifelong friends. —Sergeant Henry Johnson, a Buffalo Soldier in the U.S. Army who “voluntarily left fortified shelter and under heavy fire at c ...

One more tribute to our distinguished Veterans - Go Cav!!! No Sex Since 1955 A crusty old Command Sergeant Major – a veteran of a famed Cavalry Regiment – found himself at a gala event hosted by a local liberal arts college. There was no shortage of extremely young idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Command Sergeant Major for conversation. “Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?” “Negative, ma’am. Just serious by nature.” The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, “It looks like you have seen a lot of action.” “Yes, ma’am, a lot of action.” The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, “You know, you should lighten up. Relax and enjoy yourself.” The Command Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner. Finally, the young lady said, “You know, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?” “1955, Ma’am. . ...

October 10, 1845-Moses Williams, Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, was born in Carrollton, Louisiana. Not much is known of his early life but by August 16, 1881, he was serving as a first sergeant in Company I of the 9th Cavalry Regiment during the Indian Wars. On that day, he participated in an engagement in the foothills of the Cuchillo *** Mountains in New Mexico and his actions earned him the medal, America’s highest military decoration. His citation reads, “Rallied a detachment, skillfully conducted a running fight of 3 or 4 hours, and by his coolness, bravery, and unflinching devotion to duty in standing by his commanding officer in an exposed position under a heavy fire from a large party of Indians saved the lives of at least 3 of his comrades.” Williams was awarded the medal November 12, 1896. He later reached the rank of ordinance sergeant and left the army in 1898. Williams died August 23, 1899.
America's landscape of racial ethnicity has had a long tortuous road. White-man brought his so-called Civilization, using black folk as a supplemental and badly needed Labor Supply. The latent tension between natives and Africans was as unavoidable as it was unfortunate. The more that history has increasingly discovered the heroic role of Buffalo Soldiers, the more the native "Indian problems" have been overlooked. These black cavalry so pivotal in "subduing the West" were peacemakers from the point of view of settlers, but not always so to the restive tribes. Essentially, these federals were the 9th Cavalry Regiment, the 10th Cavalry Regiment, the 24th Infantry Regiment, and the 25th Infantry Regiment. The origins go back into the Civil War. Over two hundred thousand African American servicemen fought bravely during the Civil War. In the West, for one thing, a black man was less likely to be judged by his skin. Work and courage were what mattered, not skin color, or status, or education. Plus, the eco .. ...

HISTORICAL TIDBIT Nightfall, 137 years ago, the hills and ridges along the Little Bighorn River in southern Montana were finally silent. On June 25, 1876, the 7th Cavalry Regiment entered the mythology of the American West. Survivors of the battle were huddled on bluffs above the river, under the command of Major Marcus Reno and Captain Frederick Benteen. Several miles away General George Armstrong Custer, several family members, and the bodies of over 200 cavalrymen of Companies C, E, F, I, and L, lay scattered across the battlefield. Several dozen were clustered together on Last Stand Hill; some two dozen from Company E lay dead in Deep Ravine, not far from Last Stand Hill, though later no trace of their bodies were found. It was a great victory for the Sioux and Cheyenne nations, and at the same time, the beginning of their end.
Today in 1876, General Custer and the 7th Cavalry Regiment began the two-day-long Battle of Little Bighorn.

Jose Doroteo Arango Arumbula. Who??? Would you believe Pancho Villa? Probably the best known (in America, anyway) of the various contenders for the rule of Mexico during that country's Civil War in the early 20th century, Villa was America's choice, backed by American arms and ammunition until President Woodrow Wilson switched sides and cut Villa off in 1913. Villa tried to keep up the fight without U.S. help, but it became more and more of a losing proposition. He needed money, he needed weapons, he needed ammunition and, by 1916, he needed tham NOW! He thought he saw a way to get them, and he ordered some 100 of his men to raid the town of Columbus, New Mexico. Unfortunately for the raiders, a detachment of the 13th Cavalry Regiment was also in Columbus. Some 80 Villistas were killed in the raid, along with 10 American civilians and eight cavalrymen. An angry President Wilson ordered the U.S. army to mount an expedition (commanded by General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing) into Mexico for the ex ...
On Saturday, Feb. 23, I helped my Sons of Confederate Veterans camp, Col. E.W. Taylor install 2 headstones for 2 Confederate Veterans buried in Birdville Cemetery who did not have a marker. The first headstone installed was for William G. Nuckolls, who was born in Hardin County, Tennessee in 1830. He was a Confederate veteran of a Tennessee cavalry regiment. He came from Tennessee to the Keller area in or soon after 1880,and remained there the rest of his life. The second headstone was for Mortimer C. Elliston. who came to Texas from Kentucky in 1848 and settled in the Birdville community in Tarrant County. He served in a local Confederate cavalry unit. He lies buried in Birdville Cemetery in an unmarked grave. Now at last, these two Confederate Veterans have a headstone so they can be remembered.
Thin Grey Line of North Carolinians The “Confederate Greys” of Duplin County, originally students of Captain Claudius B. Denson’s Franklin Military Institute near Faison, North Carolina and commanded by him, was mustered into the 20th North Carolina Regiment in 1861 as Company E. As part of the 20th Regiment, its commanders then were Col. Alfred Iverson and Lt. Col. Frank J. Faison, the latter killed at Cold Harbor; the regiment was later commanded by Col. Thomas F. Toon of Columbus County. Thin Grey Line of North Carolinians “About the middle of June, 1864, Gen. [Jubal] Early was detached from Gen.

UK soldier-turned-singer James Blunt tells how he stops World War III turned singer ... James Blunt performs in Hollywood last Friday. James Blunt says he stopped World War III from happening by disobeying a general's order. The singer, who served in the British army for six years, told the BBC yesterday he refused an order to seize an airfield during NATO's 1999 intervention in Kosovo after the Russians got to it first. "It was a mad situation anyway," he told BBC Radio 5Live. Advertisement: Story continues below "We had 200 Russians lined up pointing their weapons at us aggressively and we've been told to reach the airfield and take a hold of it." Blunt was a 25-year-old cavalry officer at that time and the head of his unit, which was leading a column of 30,000 NATO troops.

Went to an outstanding conference on African Americans in the Civil War today hosted by the Catoctin Center for Regional Studies. I was blown away by the talk given by Dr. Cheryl Laroche from UMD. She's absolutely smashed the argument that slavery was not a root cause of the Civil War with her research. Dr. James McPherson gave a talk on African American Union soldiers and sailors and the subject of women soldiers came up. One of the rangers from the Clara Barton National Historical Site asked about women soldiers of color. I regret to say I blanked on Maria Lewis's last name this afternoon on the spot, but brought her existence and her regiment (the 8th NY Cavalry) up in the conversation anyway. Of course I remembered her full name in a flash this evening -- never fails! The conference is supposed to be broadcast (C-Span I believe) and it is well worth watching.

On the morning of December 29, 1890, the army demanded the surrender of all Sioux weapons. Amid the tension, a shot rang out, possibly from a deaf brave who misunderstood his chief's orders to surrender. The Seventh Cavalry — the reconstructed regiment lost by George Armstrong Custer — opened fire on the Sioux. The local chief, BIG FOOT, was shot in cold blood as he recuperated from pneumonia in his tent. Others were cut down as they tried to run away. When the smoke cleared almost all of the 300 men, women, and children were dead. Some died instantly, others froze to death in the snow. THEY WERE FORCED TO GIVE UP THERE GUNS TOO...REMEMBER THAT!

THE BOER WAR 1899 – 1902     The Boers, or Afrikana’s were mainly of Dutch stock and had been settling around the Cape of Good Hope since the seventeenth century.  In 1806, during the Napoleonic Wars Britain took control of the Cape after a brief struggle with the Dutch.  The abolition of slavery throughout the British Empire in 1834 was the last straw for the rural Afrikana’s who relied on the manual labour of the Africans.  This prompted the “Great Trek”, a Boer migration North over the Orange and Vaal rivers to found the Transvaal and Orange Free State. The discovery of diamonds and the world’s largest gold deposits within the heart of the Transvaal in 1886 saw hordes of Adventurers (Uitlanders) flock into these republics seeking wealth and prosperity.  These newcomers soon paid 80 percent of the taxes but were denied rights of citizenship.  The Uitlanders, many of whom where British, appealed to Britain for support against this Afrikaner oppression.  Meanwhile President Kruger of t ...

Fort Bragg soldiers prepare to go to Kosovo FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Fort Bragg soldiers are very used to overseas deployments. But several hundred soldiers will be heading to a different destination this spring. The Fayetteville Observer reported that members of the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade are heading to Kosovo. The brigade headquarters and 1st Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment, will take over an assignment that has been largely held by National Guard and Army Reserve units for the past decade. Outgoing brigade commander Col. Xavier Brunson says the Kosovo assignment will present a different set of challenges than those faced by the soldiers who have been going to Iraq and Afghanistan. Brunson said the soldiers will work with local officials to help ensure freedom of movement between ethnic enclaves. The United States has had forces in Kosovo since the late 1990s.

(D Troop (Air), 1st Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, AMCAL Division, Viet Nam) - Weather in North Carolina is in the 60s (warmer than we heat our house in Corning. There is sunshine here also - we haven't seen sun in a while.
WWII Knowledgey fellows, little help needed. During the Japanese Invasion of the Philippines, how were the US forces opposing them equipped? I've read that the Filipino Scouts had "Enfields" , presumably M1917s, but were the US forces there using Garands etc? Again, read that on Wake Island, they were armed with M1903s and wore the old First World War type Helmet (M1917 Helmet?) but unsure if those in the Philippines were that badly equipped or whether some modern stuff had reached them.

 These operations, in which the REPs were heavily involved, depended upon the speed, flexibility, and co-ordination of large ground and air forces (and occasionally, even coastal landings by Marines). Acting on Intelligence reports, 'hunting commandos' of French and harkis would probe a target sector until they made contac; and would maintain that contact at all costs, while calling in the motorised and para units of the 'general reserve'. These mobile units might total as many as 25,000 for a major operation, apart from the static 'sector troops' already in place. All elements would be co-ordinated by a single HQ.  By the skillful use of map, radio, spotter plane and helicopter - and by a great deal of night driving followed by hard marching over appalling terrain from the nearest 'truckable' roads - the paras would weave a tight net all around the location. Helicopters would be used to block the most immediatly vulnerable escape routes, and to lift radio scout squadas on to commanding heights; they w ...

The Battle of Koregaon took place on January 1, 1818, at the bank of the river Bhima in Koregaon, northwest of Pune, India. A small force of 500 men of the 2nd Battle [1] for twelve hours against a large force of 20,000 horse and 8,000 infantry of Peshwa Leader Peshwa Baji Rao II who was threatening the British garrisons at Kirkee and Poona. In November 1817, Peshwas devastated the Regency of Pune giving no scope for the British army to retaliate successfully. The British commanding officer in Pune called the Chief of the second Battalion-first Regiment Native Infantry for help which was encamped in the Shirur Taluka of Pune district. This contingent, with only 500 foot soldiers and 250 cavalry both predominantly having with Mahars defeated the mighty Peshwa army of 8,000 foot soldiers and 20,000 cavalry. The Peshwa's troops inexplicably withdrew that evening, despite their overwhelming numbers, giving the British an important victory. The men of the 2/1st Regiment Bombay Native Infantry, who fought in th ...

Black History Event @ Your McCracken County Public Library Reverend Newton Bush: Freedom at a Terrible Price Portrayed by: Robert Bell January 1, 1863 was an historic day in United States history. President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation took effect, freeing most slaves in the United States. But for enslaved men living in Kentucky and other border states, it was a bittersweet occasion. Lincoln desperately wanted to keep Kentucky loyal to the Union. It was not until 1864, when Kentucky became the last state allowing their enlistment that slaves could join the Union Army. Like many Kentucky-owned slaves, Newton Bush risked his life to escape from his owner and travel to Camp Nelson and enlist in Company E of the 5th Regiment United States Colored Cavalry. Fighting for their freedom and a better life for the people they loved, Bush was one of 24,000 men of color from Kentucky who joined the Colored Cavalry. It didn’t take long for them to discover that joining the Army didn’t result in being trea ...
If IKEA meatballs sold in Britain have contained horse meat then I must have eaten the equivalent of a whole cavalry regiment by now.
From my own knowledge THE KENYA ARMY INFANTRY The Infantry units are the principle fighting arms of the Kenya Army. The primary mission of the Infantry formations is to fight and win land battles within area of operational responsibilities in the defense of the nation against land – based aggression, while the secondary mission is the provision of aid and support to civil authorities in the maintenance of order. In the early 1960s 3rd, 5th, and 11th Battalions of the King's African Rifles (KAR) were based at Nanyuki, Gilgil (seemingly in the same town as a British battalion) and Nairobi (Langata) in rotation.[1] Timothy Parsons writes: '..Kenyan political elites viewed the army as a potential source of political leverage. No party or ethnic group was willing to let its rivals gain a dominant position in the armed forces. As a result, veteran askaris worried that politically connected soldiers would replace them. Most of the "martial races" that eomprised the old colonial forces were not part of KANU, an ...

Last night I attended the VII Corps “Jayhawks” Desert Storm Veterans Association’s 22nd Anniversary Reunion and Awards Dinner. Events such as these keep foremost in our minds the sacrifices of those who came before us, and the deep history and traditions within VII Corps and the greater U.S. Army. It was a time for this distinguished group of Veterans, united by the bonds of war, to reflect on accomplishments of the past while looking confidently to the future. It was great to see old friends and share memories of our time together in VII Corps. Army Strong!

The repertoire was: Von Suppe "Light Cavalry" Leroy Anderson "Blue Tango" and "Phantom Regiment" Tschaikovsky Fourth Symphony "Finale" Gershwin "An American in Paris" The Belleville Children's Choir had been scheduled to sing, but cancelled due to uncertainties in the weather. The beginning of the concert was delayed because of calliope music.
An infantry soldier is a member of the British Army whose primary role is the engagement and fighting of enemies on foot, as opposed to from the air or as a member of the support arms of the army. The infantry soldier is one of the oldest and most respected professions in the world. The infantry is the backbone and sine qua non of an army, often carrying out the most dangerous and physical work, close to the front line. Historically the infantry has been amongst the largest of the units within an army, but in modern times, due in part to the sophistication of the modern warfare theater, infantry numbers have diminished slightly. However, due to the intrinsic nature of their work, infantry soldiers are still highly sought after and extremely important. In times gone by infantry work was solely for front line, aggressive actions, and whilst this does still hold true in certain ways, the modern infantry soldier is more likely to be involved in humanitarian and peacekeeping work, in some of the many sections ...
BLOODY BILL HISTORY HIGHLIGHTS April 21, 1862 - Confederate Congress passed the Partisan Ranger Act. Law was written to help recruit irregulars. Partisan Rangers who were also known as "bushwhackers" and "guerillas", depending on which side of the battle line you were standing on. Oct. 26,1864, a company of Missouri Partisan Rangers led by Capt. William Anderson were camped north of Orrick, Mo. on land owned by "Riley" Blythe, which was known as Albany. Major Samuel Cox of Gallatin, Mo. and 300 men of the 51st and 33rd Missouri Militia Mounted Infantry U.S were a few miles away on the other side of Albany. Mrs. Mary Rowland, a union mother, road to Major Cox and told him where the Rangers were camped. This resulted in the "Battle of Albany". The 1881 Ray County History Book gives the following account. "a heavy force of guerrillas, under the command of Bill Anderson, were repulsed near Albany, Ray county, by a portion of the 51st regiment, E. M. M., commanded by Major John Grimes, and a portion of the Dav ...

Saga of the NCO, Chapter 4: I arrived in Fort Hood in October 2005. After processing thorough the 1st Cav reception battalion, I was assigned to 2nd Brigade. After a trip through Brigade, I was assigned to 1st Battalion 8th Cavalry Regiment. The first NCO I met in this Battalion was Command Sergeant Major Gilbert. As I type this, I hear a collective groan running through the Soldiers that served under him. He had spent his career in tanks, and loved being a tanker almost as much as we loved being Infantry. This led to ruffled feathers and no love lost on either side. He lined us up on the sidewalk behind the Battalion and asked us what our PT scores were, who had family, who had kids, and several other generic questions. Then he proceeded to separate us into two groups. I was standing in a group that held Michael Doke, Daniel Martinez, Brian Algots, James Arnold, Guerrero, and Hafley. The CSM then gestured to the NCO's standing at the end of the sidewalk, pointed to my group and said,"Bravo Company, I ga ...

A Boy Wanders In On May 26, 1828, a boy wondered into the town square of Nuremberg. Although it was a Monday, there weren’t very many people around since it was a holiday. George Weichmann, a local cobbler, discovered the boy. He took note of the fact that the boy was poorly dressed, well built, and walked in a strange manner – with legs stiff and straight. He attempted talking to the boy but the only response he would receive was “don’t know”. He was stunned to discover the boy’s feet bleeding though his shoes. Careful examination of his feet revealed scores of blisters on feet so tender, they appeared to have never been walked on. His skin was extremely pale as if he had never been exposed to sunlight. The backs of his knees lacked the normal ‘hollow’ but rather had small protrusions giving Weichmann the impression the lad had seldom bent his legs at the knees. The boy handed George two letters addressed to the captain of the 4th Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment. Weichmann immedia ...

The picture below is of my Uncle Dan who started his journey at age 17 at West Point Academy. After graduation he became a Second Lieutenant, enrolled in ranger and airborne school, and emerged as a recon platoon leader in Vietnam. He was rewarded two Bronze Stars and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry for his actions in the fighting that followed. Later, as a Troop Commander in the 6th Cavalry Regiment, my uncle, as Captain Speilman led the first regular army unit into Washington, D.C. to control the riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. He was selected by the army to go to graduate school in University of Texas. After receiving his graduate degree, he taught Geography at his alma mater, West Point. After he heard about the army selecting 30 officers to send to medical school, he decided to apply. He was chosen, and completed three surgical training programs at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Making him a colonel with two-board certifications- ENT, plastic surgery, and hand and mi . ...
