A history of the Herschede Family is "in the works". My father was Dick Herschede who played polo with the Cincinnati Polo Club. I'm having a hard time finding info and am trying to understand the connection between the Polo Club and the 107th Regiment Horse Cavalry of the National Guard. My Mom kept a scrapbook, basically every game as reported in the Enquirer.
I would appreciate knowing the best website that might give me insight as to what my Dad did as a member of the 107th. between the years of 1933 - 1938.
Thanks,
Mary Kay Herschede Collins

Greg,
I suppose my father's two horses had ID Cards and had Names. I never asked him. Daddy wasn't issued a helmet until he was shipped to England before D-Day. It is very interesting to note that Camp McCoy,Wisconsin had horse cavalry. Doctor Bill Westen was discharged at Camp McCoy in December 1945.
Sincerely, Greg Westen

a wonderful history and tribute to the horses we trusted our lives to for so many years-how willingly they learned what we wanted and tried to do their best through all kinds of hardship to their death many times-so many horses-I'm sure some were average but some were so unforgettable-thanks to all who contributed-enjoyed the transport photos-they all knew they were going on some adventure and seemed ready for it.Bless em--

I really enjoyed the website. My dad, Peter Kraushar was in the 107th from 1940-1943 and was at Camp Forest TN and Fort Ord. He went to Fiddlers green in 2004 a few months shy of 90.

My father, Stanley A Sullivan was one of the men who made those 107TH reunions a reality, I was part of those because I took all the reservations for those reunions back in Cincy at the Schulers Wigwam on Northbend rd.I enjoyed watching and listening to all the 107th memories. This blog was certainly interesting to read. My dad died of alzheimers in May of 1996,he would have enjoyed reading this.

Very interesting reading and wonderful pictures. One of the pictures is of my father Frank Wellerding at Camp Lucky Strike. It is great to learn more about the 107th C troop and where my dad was stationed. Thank you for this web site!
