Fellow Troopers,

A task at hand is something that all of you can help with. We currently have the names of approximately 300 troopers that served with Alpha Troop, 3rd of the 17th Air Cavalry directly or attached (575th TC, 812th SC, D Troop Blues).

There are many other names of those that are not on our current rosters that we are seeking to include in our search to let them all know about the organization. There are also some names we have currently that we do not have the contact info on

We do have most of the names starting from the beginning up to the first quarter of 1969. The years that we do not have a lot of names are from the last 3 quarters of 1969 thru 1972! We need those of you who are from that era to put your thinking caps on and start making a list of all the names you can recall.

If you would start making a list of all the troopers that you can remember the names of, even if it is just a last name, along with the appropriate year, and send it to the membership committee. Any other information you can remember, such as:

NAME, Last
NAME, First
NAME, Middle or Initial
Home, State
Home, Town
Age, (even if it is approx)
Dates assigned to A Troop
Wife, Name
Sibling, Names

A resource that you may have would be are any ORDERS that you have from when you were assigned to the Troop.

With the help of some in locating several missing Troopers last year, the more info one has to include in the search, the easier it is to locate the missing, hence the request for name of wife, sister, brother.

Send the information to the Membership Committee

Any and all information will be treated securely within the Membership Committee and the Administration of the Silver Spur Organization and will not be shared or distributed to any other organization or individual!

If any information is requested about a Trooper, that Trooper will be contacted by the committee and given the requesters contact info and if they desire to contact the requester, they may.

Once we get a good start on the names we will seek volunteers to help locating the missing. Ways anyone can help is to use some of the available search tools that we will introduce you to and let you assist in contacting them. It always helps to have someone contact those that knew them so they will feel comfortable talking when you call them out of the blue. To hold the expenses down, a lot of folks have cell phones this day and time and most of them have some available FREE time that can be used on week ends and evenings, we just will want to make sure we do not call too late or too early. Those on the East coast could even call later if they were calling to the West coast.
