Trooper down: CSM Ernie Ford – Special notice from the Blackhorse Association

The Blackhorse Association has lost a very special member. CSM Ernie Ford was tragically killed in an automobile accident while on his way to work in Alaska on Tuesday, the 29th of July. CSM Ford was a lifelong member of the Association beginning with his distinguished service in the Third Squadron in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, including several Boselager Scout competitions. He was the Director of Scholarships for several years, and has continued to be part of the annual scholarship evaluation committee. He has attended most of the annual reunions, including the most recent one in Colorado Springs. No one has worked harder over time to support every aspect of the Association. He will be sorely missed. As soon as we receive the family-approved obituary, we will publish it – tentatively there may be services in Phoenix, Arizona and possibly in Colorado Springs, CO with burial in Arlington.
