2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment 1967-68



Roster

This roster is based primarily on official information contained in the Bravo Company Roster, dated April 1968,
and numerous unit orders for awards and assignments.
For corrections, please contact Tom De Young or Gene Hedberg.

We have no official records that show the rank of troopers when they completed their tour with Bravo Company.
Since we are unable to obtain accurate information on the final grades for 300-350 troopers,
we have decided not to show any grades for E-5 and below.
 


ABBREVIATIONS:
MOS stands for Military Occupational Specialty. A MOS identifies general and specific jobs for military personnel.
DEROS stands for Date Eligible for Return from Overseas. This was the date a trooper would return to the United States.

^ = Died in aircraft crash or as a result of wounds.
CO = Commanding Officer
XO = Executive Officer
CG = Command Group (Aztec, Blackfoot, Cheyenne and Mohawk are the names of platoons).
