USS Ronald Reagan
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

- Tumbleweed
I was reading an article about the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and they showed the following emblem. Anybody know the story behind this?



Got ya' covered, Bud!

"During special ship evolutions a battle flag is flown from the mast of U.S. Navy Ships. The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) battle flag continues this tradition with a design created exclusively by her plankowner crew to honor our namesake.

Like the ship's seal, each aspect of the battle flag has relevance to President Reagan.

President Reagan's personal military experience began in 1935 when he enlisted as a private in Troop B, 322nd Cavalry – the reason for the letter B and the numbers 322. In April of 1937 he earned a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Reserve Corps of Cavalry. Later that year, Ronald Reagan starred in the motion picture, “Sergeant Murphy�, a Hollywood movie made in part by the 11th Cavalry Regiment. The red over white background is reminiscent of the 11th Cavalry’s original guidon (or flag) and later, their unit’s patch. The crossed sabers reflect those found on the cover or cap of a Cavalry officer as early as the 1800s.

During World War II, Lt. Reagan interrupted his acting career to join active-duty service. In 1942, he transferred to the Army Air Corps assigned to the 1st Motion Picture Unit in Culver City, Calif. In support of the war effort, Lt. Reagan’s military units produced 400 military training films, and he was promoted to Captain. On Apr. 1, 1953 his military career ended until Jan. 20, 1981 when he was sworn in as Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The number 76 refers to the hull number of USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76)."

(The bold bit is my emphasis... Mr. Green )

Not wanting to burst your bubble, Shocked but I believe that ALL CAVALRY SQUADRONS used the 'cav guidon'.

I believe there were a number of squadrons in existance before 11th was formed, and they used the red & white guidon.

The lineage story was pretty neat though....

BTW: Notice where TW is living now....? Wink (Another 'raw' recruit.... Laughing )

(Stirring up trouble,....again) Mr. Green

Well, I didn't write it, but you're still a stinker for bursting my bubble! Evil or Very Mad

Actually, Reagan's stock just went up with me a coupla' points for at least having the mud to enlist as a private in a Cav unit back then.


OMG! E-Town! Just imagine listening to WQXE and hearing me doing the news announcing, among other things, the death of Jim Croce and the resignation of Spiro Agnew (I drove back to the station just to do it again later the same evening Laughing ) "Project Transition" alumni-1973
