About

What We Do

The U.S. Cavalry Association, founded in 1976, is dedicated to preserving the traditions of the U.S. Cavalry. We do this through education efforts via our Museum and Library in Fort Reno, Oklahoma, sponsoring events with traditional cavalry activities and competitions, and publishing educational movies and publications like our Cavalry Journal and Cavalry Training DVDs. We also participate in the preservation of historic Cavalry buildings, such as the stable at Fort Reno.
