President’s Message
Hello to you my fellow Cavalry and Armor Soldiers. It has certainly been a busy spring we have had and we look forward to an equally busy summer
for us all. Well as we are all well aware our valiant Soldiers of the 102nd Cavalry Squadron have been deployed to both Jordan and the Horn of Africa, Somalia in particular, and are as usual "Setting the Standards" at a very high level for others to attain.
They will "Show em the Way."
Take care and enjoy until we see each other at a meeting "See ya when I see ya."
Show 'Em The Way!
Daniel T. Mahon Colonel, Retired, USA

Squadron Commander’s Message
"With the Squadron well over the half-way mark on our overseas deployment, we have scored historical achievements on our security cooperation and SECFOR missions. We should all be very proud of what we have accomplished across three continents - both the forward-deployed elements and the rear detachment - knowing that we will continue to excel on the bottom half of our tour. Let us all stay vigilant, keeping our sabers sharpened and our mounts ready, as we display this Squadron as the shining example of Army excellence
that it indeed is"

From the Editor
Troopers, Thank you very much for your continuing support. As our Squadron is deployed across the world on missions of importance to the national security, I hope you will look forward to reading some of their new exploits here. Consider also coming out to one of our upcoming events or meetings and having a follow up discussion face to face. It's always great catching up with old friends & making new ones. Please keep the Troopers in your thoughts and prayers as they are away from their families and homes in defense of our freedoms & on our behalf. Godspeed & Show 'Em the Way! ryan.c.bailey@hotmail.com

Hello, once again all of you Cavalry and Armor Soldiers, it’s good to be with you all here in 2019. So much has happened since we last talked and I want to ensure we are all up to date with our association and current Cavalry Activities. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Holiday Season to include a Happy New Year’s Celebration. Shortly after the start of the year several members of the Association attended two separate Send Offs of the current 102nd Squadron
