I received a call today from the 3d US Cavalry Association Gift Shop, letting me know that the t-shirts with the 3CR bug on them are in for anyone wanting one to wear one when they rack up miles.
I bought five of them. They have both Black and Gray and are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-4pm.
Out of town ordering
If you are out of town and want to order one, all you need to do is call them at 254-532-9323, just tell him you want one of the hiking shirts Bridget wears, he’ll know what you’re talking about. The online store is currently being worked on and is out of date, so do not place your order there, it will just delay your order.
Directions to the gift shop
Directions from 190: take Fort Hood street north. Take a left at on Tank Destroyer (Rancier). Go through the gate. Take a right on 27th Street. 27th street will literally run into the parking lot for Headquarters Division West. This is where you will park. The museum is to the left of the parking lot (where all the tanks are). The gift shop is in building 418 (I think). It has a vinyl banner that says Gift Shop on the outside.
While you are there don’t forget to visit the museum (it’s free). Make sure to go to both buildings to see all the history. And keep logging those miles!
