The Third Cavalry Museum is an American Association of Museums accredited, U.S. Army Center of Military History certified museum. Its mission is to identify, collect, research, preserve, and interpret historically significant properties and maintain them as a usable resource for scholars; to further community relations as well as enhance morale and esprit de corps; to provide a professional facility for the study of the history of the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment, and it predecessor, the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen from 1846 to the present; to provide educational services to include programs, classes, exhibits, audiovisuals and publications for use by the Regiment, ROTC programs, public schools, and the civilian and military population.
The museum supports the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment, a 160 year old U.S. Army unit that moved from Fort Carson, Colorado to Fort Hood, Texas in July 2006. The museum was closed and the collection packed in preparation for the move to Ft. Hood. It is currently stored, waiting for a building to be made available at Ft. Hood where all new exhibits will be required to tell the story of the Regiment’s service that covers the period from the Mexican War through two tours in Iraq in support of the Global War on Terrorism.
The 3d Cavalry Association (https://www.3dacr.org/) is the 501c.3. non-profit organization that supports programs for the Regiment and the museum. Your donation will be routed through the Association to the museum to help us raise the funds for this project.
