The 6th U.S. Cavalry Association will memorialize thee 6th Cavalrymen who have died by honoring their service to our country at this year’s Remembering Our Heroes on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 12:30 p.m. on the polo field on Barnhardt Circle.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 6th U.S. Cavalry Association was chartered in 1900 as “a non-profit, non-sectarian fraternity, organized to perpetuate the memories and comradeship born of days in the saddle, and lest we forget; that warm affection between the Trooper and his faithful friend- The Horse.” While much has changed for the 6th Cavalry since moving from horse cavalry to armor cavalry to its present day air cavalry, the bond forged as a member of the 6th Cavalry has not.
