Community OrganizationsGifts & Specialty Items
1st Cavalry Division Association is a non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit 501(c)19 fraternity for Soldiers and Veterans, currently serving or have previously served in the First Cavalry Division. National Headquarters is in Copperas Cove, Texas. We have 25 chapters spread across the United States, with an active local chapter in the Fort Hood area.
We began 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.
Anyone who has been assigned or attached to the 1st Cavalry Division is eligible for a Life Membership, ($10). Friends of the Cav who have not served with the Division can become Associate Members for $15 Annual Membership or $150 for Life Associate Membership.
If you served in the Division, you earned the right to be a Member of the elite and prestige 1st Cavalry Division Association. We share a great Division heritage: horse cavalry, ground and airmobile infantry, armor, and our current modular configuration, Once Cav, Always Cav!
The Association offers Active-Duty scholarships, hosts an annual Reunion and Veterans Day activities in Washington D.C. Refer to our website, www.1CDA.org for further information.
We are a group of Soldiers and former Soldiers from Private to 4-star Generals who share a bond of service with the FIRST TEAM who are dedicated to supporting the Division and each other.
