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.
