The dates for the reunion are April 29-May 2 2021.  A lot more details will be forthcoming as we get closer to our next reunion.To make the reunion and the dedication of the memorial a reality we need your help.With the focus of the reunion on the dedication of the memorial to all the fallen of the Regiment, your help in getting us across the finish line is critical to making the memorial a reality. The generosity of many troopers to date has been amazing as we have made great strides towards reaching our goal of $125,000 with pledges and donations totaling $95,000. We are still short $30,000 towards our goal.  I would like to ask you to consider making a pledge to the memorial which you can pay over time through PayPal at…See More
