A little Cavalry history


Recommended Posts

A vet up in Denver had his 100th birthday yesterday and his neighbors arranged a little parade for him. He served in Wyoming’s 115th Cavalry. They were Federalized in 1940 and served mostly along the Northwest coast during the war. Many of the opted for combat assignments. The first man ashore at Utah beach was a former 115th officer. Here’s a great photo of the 115th at Ft. Lewis Washington in ‘42.
