Honoring contributions by non-troopers:

Lyle Johanson In the true Cav spirit took the time and effort to craft an outstanding work of art for the 2008 Reunion Raffle.

Barbara Cooper For Meritorious Service providing mug shots of the troopers and guests which has proven to be the key element in connecting the correct name to the correct face, from the period of 2002 – 2008.
