This will be the first time the Memorial Service will be held at the event explained Association Commander Robert Fisak.  “More than just the 6th Cavalry family will be here to honor them.  A broad group of patriots will join us to pay tribute to them and say good-bye in fine military fashion with a 21-gun salute.”

The public is invited to attend the Association’s annual banquet at 6 p.m. at the 6th Cavalry Museum.  Banquet tickets are $12 per person.  If you know of a 6th Cavalryman who passed away since 2012 you can have them included in the Memorial Service by calling the museum at 706.861-2860 or e-mail chris@6thcavalrymuseum.com.
