Welcome to the 124th Cavalry Association

This site is dedicated to the current and, especially, the past members of the 124th Cavalry Regiment. We have the distinction of being the last horse cavalry regiment in the United States Army and former members fought in the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations during World War II where they earned their moniker, Marsmen.

The Regiment has had subsquent deployments in support of the War on Terror.  Troop A deployed during OIF 2 to Iraq and served with distinction.  The 1st Squadron deployed to Egypt to lead the MultiNational Forces Observer mission on the Sinai Peninsula.  The 1st Squadron deployed again with the 56th Infantry Brigade Combat Team during OIF 09-11.
