Our Reunion Mission

Our Regimental Association mission and objectives are:
  • To honor comrades who gave their lives in the service of our country and Regiment.
  • To preserve and strengthen comradeships formed in the Regiment.
  • To provide educational scholarships for the children of those who served in the Regiment.
  • To proclaim and publicize the achievements and traditions of the Regiment.
  • To support the troopers serving in the active Regiment.
In order to accomplish the first two objectives the Blackhorse Association conducts frequent reunions to bring together Blackhorse veterans and their families from all eras of Regimental service.
