The Cav Baby is a unique individual. Cav Babies are born under the red and white guidons of the cavalry. Many Cav Babies (as well as many Army babies) are the result of a long overseas deployment! Nearly every Cav unit recognizes the birth of these new troopers during unit hail and farewell ceremonies. Some units will present the new parents with an engraved baby cup, a silver spoon, or even a CAV BABY certificate. Soon you will be able to register your lil' trooper as an "official" CAV Baby, show off with a photo of your child on the website, and receive a certificate! Many units already have such a program in place and we would love to find some of these kids now, so when they grow up and join the Cavalry, they can come back & visit their roots and find their sandbox playmates!
