11TH CAVALRY MEMORIAL PROJECT
Here is an artist’s sketch of what the new monument will look like, with a target date of completion on or about 1 June of 2015.
Anyone can purchase a memorial brick, at a cost of $100 each. The bricks are a lasting tribute of your service to our regiment. The bricks are a special way in which we all can participate and show our support for our fellow Blackhorse troopers whose names are listed on the memorials. The bricks measure 8 x 4 x 2 inches and can accommodate inscription of up to three lines of 15 characters per line. Many choose to have their name, unit and years of service with the regiment inscribed on their brick. Others have chosen to put the names of other troopers on a brick. You may purchase bricks along with others to be placed together at the new monument – for example, a group from K Troop, 3/11 from Bad Hersfeld in the 80’s is purchasing approximately 10 bricks for that purpose. In the sketch above, the pavers will be placed in the four rectangular areas shown.
The opportunity to purchase a brick will end on December 31, 2014.

(1) go to our website at www.blackhorse.org and follow the instructions on the top right of the home page, or
