    I have just recently been appointed the chaplain of the 8th US Calvary Regiment Association.

    Most units of the 8th Reg have served with the First Cav Division, though some units have been assigned to other divisions as well.

    Currently there are less than 100 members of the Association, so my duties will be minimal. I trust I will be a blessing to the members and assist them as needed. Members do live throughout the county, so must assistance would be by email and or phone.

    Both Col Moore and Custard were with the 5TH Cav Regt.
