Blackhorse Family Reunion 2022!

Blackhorse Reunion

 

The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment’s Blackhorse Association will hold its annual Blackhorse Family Reunion in Las Vegas, Nevada June 9–12, 2022. Our reunion—held in Las Vegas to be close to the active Regiment—is open to all past and present troopers who served with the Regiment; their families; anyone who served in the Regimental Community or any of the separate units that supported the Regiment; and friends of the association.

We will be staying at The Orleans hotel. Rooms have been set aside for reunion attendees. Rates for each night for each level of rooms are provided below:
