    Seeking 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment Yearbook

    Jean Pool Newbie

      Hello, I have been trying to find a copy of the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment Yearbook.  It's dated 1901-1952.  I'm attaching a photo of the cover because there are apparently others versions which are similar however not this one in particular.  Does anyone have knowledge of this book?  Is it accessible in perhaps a military library that the public can request access to?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

          Dear Ms. Pool,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Unit Histories, 1943 - 1967 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) ( Record Group 338) and the series titled World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1981 (Record Group 407) but were unable to locate the yearbook of the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment that you seek.

           

          The U.S. Army Heritage & Education Center, 950 Soldiers Drive, Carlisle, PA 17013, has a large collection of published unit histories that includes the yearbook you seek. Their web site is https://ahec.armywarcollege.edu/. Please contact USAHEC for access.

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!

              It's always worth a stop at Ebay for unit histories. Many show up there pretty regularly.

               

              Also try a Google search simply using the term of the name of the unit, followed by a comma and then the word yearbook.  If you don't get a hit then remove in your search term the word yearbook and try it again.

               

              Run a google search to see if that unit has an active vet's association, using a term along the lines of '14th Armored Cavalry Regiment Association.'

               

              Good luck!
