In 1976 a group of Cavalrymen met to determine the status of efforts to preserve the history, traditions, artifacts, and literature of the U.S. Cavalry. The outcome of that meeting was the formation of The United States Cavalry Association.
The primary objective of the United States Cavalry Association is to preserve the history and traditions of the U.S. Cavalry service. We accomplish this goal through publications, events, and preservation of artifacts, photographs and written materials associated with the cavalry. The U.S. Cavalry Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization.
History. Heritage. Horsemanship. Membership.
The United States Cavalry Association is dedicated to preserving the history, heritage and horsemanship of the cavalry.
