Are you a Life Member of the 1CD Association?

A non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit Soldiers and Veterans fraternity.

On July 17, 1944, a group of FIRST TEAM Soldiers in the Admiralty Islands agreed to form an Association of 1st Cavalry Division Soldiers and Veterans to preserve old friendships and conduct periodic reunions. The Association held its first reunion in 1948 in El Paso, Texas and was incorporated in Washington, DC in 1949.

Anyone who has been assigned or attached to the 1st Cavalry Division anytime, anywhere, is eligible for Life membership. There are more than 28,000 men and women on our active membership rolls.

We are a group of Soldiers and former Soldiers from privates to 4-star generals who share a bond of service with the FIRST TEAM.  We are dedicated to supporting the 1st Cavalry Division and each other.  Once Cav, always Cav!

Here's a shout out to our Vietnam Brothers....Do you remember that book you received as you departed the AO or maybe it came in the mail weeks later. A book about the First Team's time in Vietnam. The Association has teamed up with Acclaim Press once again and is having the book reprinted. Be sure to order yours now before the Dec 15 deadline. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello First Team!

I hope all is well.

I am a 1CD Assn member and have a Don Stivers - 1st Cavalry Division sponsored - "Moving Out" Framed, Triple Signed, and Numbered Print for sale. It is in "like new" condition (see attached pictures).

By chance, is there a way to find out if a fellow 1CD trooper is interested in purchasing this print before I try selling it locally? I would really like to sell this to a fellow 1CD trooper if at all possible as I know that they would appreciate it the most.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and thanks for all you do.

Best Regards,
Ryan LaPorte
