We must move the Regiment's monument from its current location by the Patton Museum outside Fort Knox to a new location just outside Fort Benning, near the site of the future Armor and Cavalry Museum. We are sharing the costs of this move with the 11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia. One of our fundraising efforts is offering pavers, which will be placed near the monument on its new site.
Special notice: EXPLANATION OF THE 1901 CLUB MAILOUT WORDING ISSUE
A week ago we mailed out the annual 1901 Club letter asking people to contribute to our Operations Fund. In the past we had attached 5 slightly perforated "tickets" to that letter. However, for the last three years we have not been using the actual tickets to draw out the 5 annual drawing winners - we have been asking for numbers from the audience at the Friday night reunion event, and those numbers were then matched up to corresponding names on Don Wicks' master roster. Therefore - since we no longer need the actual tickets, we decided to save lots of printing costs this year. However, we still left the wording about "tickets" in the letter and have confused some people.
What we really should have said is this - we will assign a number for each donation of $20 for the drawing. If the donor contributes $100, that means that they will officially be included as a 1901 Club donor and be assigned 5 numbers for the drawing in Colorado Springs next June. The only thing donors need to include in the envelope back to Don Wicks is a method of payment (check or credit card information) - then Don will assign 1-5 numbers depending on the amount of the contribution.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this wording issue may have caused, and thanks to everyone who contributes and helps us do the work of the Association.
