Veterans Day 2010VETERANS DAY MESSAGE TO THE 12th CAVALRY FAMILY 2012
Let us all remember our departed 12th Cav Assn. President Bob "the Professor" Magruder. One fine man and a great soldier of
the 12th Cav Regiment. He will be sorely missed.
Warmest greetings to all. You veterans can stand tall because this is the day that our country says,"WELCOME HOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE." May we always be the Home of the Brave and believe in our country's "IN GOD WE TRUST" - a statement that helped us in our combat days. Remember that you are the the Brave who kept our home FREE.
My recent visit, along with Jim Stokely, to an Indian Reservation to present long delayed awards to one of our departed 12th Cav -Nam Veterans- reminded me that PTSD was a silent killer and affected and still affects many of our combat brothers. Help them if you can, they deserve it, need it and sometimes it takes a friend to make them recognize this problem.
Let us hope our country heals some of the jabs of the recent election. The Army and us Veterans just keep rolling along.
Hope to see you all at our 1st CAV REUNION at Ft. Hood on 6-9 June 2013. These reunions are always special and hopefully some of our 12th Cav Active Troopers will be home after years of combat in the Iraq and Afghanistan Theater of Operations.
PROUD TO BE MEMBER OF THE 12TH CAVALRY REGIMENT.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND REGARDS TO ALL.
JAMES W. DINGEMAN and SYLVIA
HONORARY COLONEL OF THE 12TH CAVALRY REGIMENT
