The Association began SABER after it was voted to have a paper during the 1951 Reunion. The first issue was free to all members and subscriptions for $2 for two years published quarterly. The first editor of SABER NEWS was Chaplain Charles V. Trent of Augusta, Kansas who had served with the 7th Cavalry, 8th Engineer Squadron, but mainly the 5th Cavalry Regiment during World War II and was publishing a paper for the 5th Cavalry. You can read the first issue of SABER in a PDF below. Notice that the first issue had the crossed sabers of the Cavalry upside down on page 1 which was corrected in the next issue.
