Troops Need Your Help

I am going to tout our foundation again here. Five officers who served together in the 2nd ACR in Germany in the late 80s recently formed the E. E. Mixon Second Dragoons Foundation. We are pledged to help the families of fallen cavalrymen and to do so with minimal administrative costs, and for no pay, in order to ensure your donations go directly to the families in need.

We recently flew 9 members of the family of CPL Jeffrey Williams to Ft. Carson for his memorial service. Since then the 3rd ACR has suffered additional losses and we are raising money for travel for services likely to occur in Dec. The foundation web site has information on how to donate. Thanks for whatever help you can give, and thanks to the Mudville Gazette for letting me add this info to the open post.
