IMPORTANT YEAR-END MESSAGE FROM BHA PRESIDENT:

1. Our Regiment has asked for our support in two important events in the lives of the Troopers.

First, 1/221 Cavalry completes their Afghanistan rotation in late March 2010 and wish to provide "Wellington Combat Spurs" to their 760 returning heroes. We will make every effort to solicit funds for our NVNG roundout squadron.

Second, the Regimental Spring Ball will be held in Las Vegas at the end of March 2010 and they have asked for any financial assistance we might be able to generate to helpreduce the costs for Troopers. This assistance is reserved for Troopers only. Our help would be used to reduce the individual Trooper hotel room cost.

Donations may be sent to:
CPT. Monica Mahoney
HQ., 11th ACR
Fort Irwin, CA 92310
Donations may also be processed through our online PayPal account at www.blackhorse.org by selecting "Operating Fund". Specify "Spurs"or "Soldiers Ball" in the comments section while making your credit card donation.
2. You may begin now to register for the 2010 Houston Reunion to be held from 9 – 13 June 2010.
