Trooper, we need you in the Always Ready Troop

Consistent with the Regiment’s core value, the Association strives to be “Always Ready“ to support its mission to current troopers and their families, our members, and the unit’s heritage. The Always Ready Troop fund is designed to cover the Association’s annual operating costs, currently budgeted at $25,000. No restrictions are placed on this fund and all donations to the Association not otherwise designated will be placed in The Always Ready Troop fund.

Join the list of Dragoons who have already enlisted in the Always Ready Troop. A contribution of as little as $20 gets you on the rolls and a chance at our drawing in mid-January.

Now is your chance to become a member of the 2d Cavalry Association for FREE!!

All you need to do is click on the link and register. Simple as that. Click on: JOIN NOW!

Current members of the Association are grandfathered into the new system so no action on your part is needed.

MEMBERSHIP includes a free subscription to the THOROUGHBRED newsletter.

Due to the fact that the Association will no longer collect membership dues, we need your generous donations more than ever to fund the numerous projects the Association sponsors, projects such as:

Dragoon Scholarship – Every year the 2d Cavalry Association presents a $2500 scholarship in an essay contest open to any current or former member of the 2d Cavalry Regiment or members of their family, actively attending college courses. It is hoped to increase this to two or more scholarships per year.

Regimental Awards – The 2d Cavalry Association annually funds awards presented to active duty 2d Cavalry Regiment Soldiers, including the HARVAY AWARD, presented by the Second Cavalry Association to the most outstanding Junior Officer and Non-Commissioned Officer of the Regiment.

Wounded Warriors – The 2d Cavalry Association continues to provide support, both personal and financial, to our wounded 2d Dragoon warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fallen Dragoon Memorial – The 2d Cavalry Association funded the Fallen Dragoon Memorial at Rose barracks, Vilseck, Germany, honoring the fallen 2d Dragoons of OIF 2003-05, OIF 2007-08, OEF 2010-11, and OEF 2012-13, and funds the upkeep of the memorial.

Reed Museum – The 2d Cavalry Association has funded several projects by the 2d Cavalry Regiment’s Reed Museum and presents the museum with an annual grant for purchase of artifacts.

These are just a few of the many projects your DONATIONS make possible.
