Our Historian, OWSLEY COSTLOW writes: The 63rd Annual meeting of
The U. S. Armor Ass'n was held at Fort Knox January 14> 1952• The Ar-
Mor Ass'n is the successor to the U. S„ Cavalry Ass'n, The meeting was
attended by approximately 300 officers, most of them from Knox. Pro-
gram consisted of business meeting, general discussion, main address
by General J* Lawton Collins and demonstrations of new training meth-
ods and equipment. A new constitution was adopted which was written
by our own Capt. William V. Finn (F 92),
And on this news note I would like to close this month's column,
continuing what I started in the Dec. Issue, with a salute to another
Hellcat unit. I think it both fitting and proper that this issue
bring into the spct light the Cavalrymen of our 92nd Cavalry Recon-
niassance Squadron, Mechanized. This splendid organization was com-
manded throughout the war by Lt. Col. Sherburne Whipple Jr* It was a
common sight to see the 92nd out in front leading the Division and be-
cause of this one of their units "D" Troop, Captain.-William B. Bart-
holomew, Commanding-, received the Division's only Presidential unit
citation for its outstanding dash to the Rhine from IS to 20 March,
1945 • So with this let's end this salute with a big "well done" to
all our fighting cavalrymen,
