A Message About Subscriptions
Dear 1st Cavalry Division Association Trooper,
Did you realize that your subscription has now expired and you have missed one or more issues of the SABER?
I hope you will take the time to renew your subscription so that you won’t miss any more issues. The renewal form below will also provide a means by which we can verify the information on your file in our database. Please fill it out completely.
I would also like to recommend that you consider becoming a member of or extending your membership in “D-TROOP” by participating in the TROOPER FUND. For over seven decades now, our Association has been the envy of many who are not members. Our continued growth however, places a heavy demand on the Association’s ability to provide all the services requested of it. The one-time Life Membership fee established in 1944 was to have covered continued services for each new member. Service costs have risen considerably, however, and the gap between income and expenses for services has widened. To help close this gap, a TROOPER FUND was established some years ago. Since we have no annual dues, donations to this TROOPER FUND are used to make up for additional costs incurred by expanded services to the membership. The TROOPER FUND is one of the more positive means by which you can actively participate in furthering the aims and goals of your Association, and show again your elan as a CAV Trooper–a life-time member of the First Team! Would you please review the form below and send in a minimum of $25 for this cause. Milestones can be achieved cumulatively as we record all contributions.
