My father was in the Horse Field Artillery from 1939 until 1942. His name was Thad H. Meeks. He had joined at the age of 30 in 1939 from Bartow Country Ga. I have a few pics of him on his horse and on a 3 team horse and wagon. He served through WWII in the artilery after his unit dibanded from the horses. He went on to stay in service for 25 years retireing from the 1st Calv at Ft. Benning Ga. right before the deployed to Viet Nam. I know most of my fathers military service record but those first years at Ft.Sill are lacking . He was a true American to the end of his life . My brother and I followed him in service by joining the Air Force and making it a life time event. I just keep hoping I find info on one of these sites that may have a picture or something I can relate to that part of his life.

I love the photos of the medical units. My father was an M.D. assigned to the U.S. 9th CAVALRY circa 1942-1944 at Fort Clark,Texas. He was second in command of the 9th CAVALRY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
Sincerely,Greg Westen

My dad, August E. Western of Cranbury, NJ, was in the 112th prior to its activation for WWII. He was exempt from active service because he was responsible for a major supply contract for the Army. He was able to buy several of the horses after their activation and I rode them when I was a kid in the 1940's. I have a few pictures of my dad on the horses.

Thank you for the web site.

The Culver Military Academy's horse drawn unit of five French .75s remained "on duty" until the middle of 1943 when it was disbanded. The mounts, all bays and browns, were culled for the most suitable for jumping, polo, or riding, and given to the Academy. The guns, caissons, and limbers disappeared into the ether. Today Culver maintains eight artillery batteries pulled by three quarter ton weapons carriers.+
