The Second Dragoons Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes (in accordance with section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code) to provide financial assistance to members of the armed services and their families and those who have provided honorable assistance to U.S. servicemembers.
The EE Mixon Second Dragoons Foundation has provided funds to a heroic Iraqi interpreter who moved with his family to the USA.
This interpreter provided mission critical support to Cavalry troopers in Iraq. Later this interpreter and his family was threatened by Iraqi insurgents for his connection to the US Cavalry.
Once he moved to the USA with his family, we have helped him find work and set up a home.
We are proud to have provided help to this Cavalry hero.
The Second Dragoons Foundation is proud to have made another contribution to the SSG Brian Freeman scholarship fund in 2014.
SSG Freeman was killed in combat in Iraq with the 3rd ACR. The SSG Freeman scholarship was established by SSG Freeman's family to provide college funding for one student per year who graduates from Freeman's former high school and writes the best essay concerning what our country or military means to them.
SSG Freeman's memory lives on through his family's dedication to this scholarship and we are proud to be associated with this effort.
A group of Houston students have continued their annual tradition of collecting goods to send to US troops in Afghanistan for the third year in a row. They collected ten boxes of care package goods (trail mix, socks, beef jerky, paper back books, etc.). Eight high school sophomores participated (picture of six below).
The goods were sent to a Stryker platoon at an outpost near Kandahar (part of 25th ID). The EE Mixon Second Dragoons Foundation is proud to have provided funds (~$400) to ship the boxes to Afghanistan.

HOW OUR MILITARY PRESENCE IN EUROPE CONTRIBUTED TO THE END OF THE COLD WAR
Daniel Farley and some of his Houston buddies sent Care Packages to 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment in Afghanistan. The E.E. Mixon Second Dragoon Foundation helped with the shipping costs.
In recognition of the critical political and language support provided by brave Iraqis to U.S. cavalrymen at the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Second Dragoons Foundation has provided support to these Iraqis and their families as they moved to the U.S. under a special congressional program.
This year we are awarding 3 partial college scholarships either to soldiers who have served in one of the cavalry regiments or the children of those who have served.
