Always Ready Troop

Consistent with the Regiment's core value, the Association strives to be "always ready" to support its mission to current troopers and their families, our members and the unit's heritage. The Always Ready Troop fund is designed to cover the Association's annual operating costs, currently budgeted at $25,000. No restrictions are placed on this fund and all donations to the Association not otherwise designated will be placed in The Always Ready Troop fund.

Members of The Always Ready Troop will be listed on our website and published annually in the Thoroughbred. Members will also be recognized at the Reunion as members of the Troop. Every $20 donation will result in a ticket for the annual raffle to be held mid-January of each year.

The 1836 Society

The 1836 Society embodies our motto, "Remember Your Regiment." This endowment is designed to preserve the Regiment's history through multiple efforts, such as donations to the Reed Museum, the Fort Benning Classroom Project, capturing the oral histories of our veterans and other opportunities as they arise. Our intent is to establish a fund of at least $183,600 from which we can draw each year for various historical projects. The first 100 to donate to the society will be designated as charter members. Membership in the Society requires a one-time donation of $1836. It may also be paid in two or four installments of $918 or $459. Donations to The 1836 Society are restricted to preserving our heritage.

Members of The 1836 Society receive the following benefits: personalized 1836 Notecards, an 1836 Society lapel pin, a separate dinner at the Reunion, acknowledgement on our website and in the Thoroughbred annually. Members will also be memorialized on a plaque in the Fort Benning Classroom and in the Reed Museum.

Fiddler's Green

The Always Ready Troop, The 1836 Society and the Dragoon Scholarship Troop are mechanisms for members to make current contributions to the Association. In addition to these gifting opportunities, members may also make large donations in lifetime or at death as part of their comprehensive estate strategy. Appropriate donations include highly appreciated assets and named beneficiary instruments such as life insurance and IRAs. Many strategies exist to facilitate donors intending to make large gifts. If you have an interest in bequeathing the Association a substantial gift, please contact Mark Calvert at markelfordcalvert@att.net or Frank Hurd at FrankKHurd@Gmail.com who will work with you to make sure your intentions are fulfilled.
