IVY DRAGOONS SCHOLARSHIP FUNDÖ
2005 reunion in Las Vegas, the suggestion was made to
start a scholarship fund in memory of our fallen
Brothers was brought to the floor. It was
unanimously approved by all in attendance. So I
suggested to our president, Steve Edmunds,
that we take the donation from Brother Jim Bury and use
these monies to start our scholarship
fund. His response was, ďgood idea and congratulations,
youíre the new chairman of
the Scholarship Committee.Ē I will perform these duties
I suggest that we award the scholarship only to lineal
descendants of Vietnam era
Ivy Dragoons, or to their re-married spouses children. I
would like to see a self-sustaining
fund, paying the scholarship from the interest earned on
the account rather than trying every
year to collect enough to pass out a check. Other than
that, Iím open and welcome any
Two years ago, we suggested starting this fund. And two
years have passed with
nothing being accomplished. Think about it Brothers, at
about 60 years of age, how many
two-year periods do we have left to honor our fallen?
NOW IS THE TIME TO START. Please respond with your
suggestions of the
program and any ideas on how to secure the monetary
objective. Please contact me.

The Ivy Dragoons Scholarship
Update - September, 2009
Shortly before the Colorado Springs reunion it was decided
to award The First Ivy Dragoons Scholarship, in the amount
of $500.00 dollars during the Saturday evening Banquet..
Since it was short notice, President Steve Edmunds, decided
to contact all dues paying members, by E-mail, and any
brothers that do not have E-mail, by the Snail Mail method.
All dues paying members were notified that applications were
being accepted for our scholarship. Over the next few weeks,
I received a total of four applications for our scholarship.
Since I feel that we can't favor one student over another,
the decision was made to draw the winner out of a hat, as
this method, Keeps the Academic Student, and The Technical
Student, on the same playing field so to speak. I'm sure we
all agree the Need is the same!
At the reunion, I decided to make this process totally fair,
and since we had four applicants, I Marked One of the
suite's of a deck of cards on each application. Then folded
them, so as no one could see any information. Then I handed
the closest table of brotherhood, the deck of cards, and ask
they shuffle, & cut the cards, and pass them to another
table to do the same. When everyone was satisfied, I took
the cards, opened them into a large fan, and had Attendees
randomly draw cards till the Ace appeared. The suite of the
ace was the winner.
During the shuffling process, Doc Nagl, ( 9/66- 9/67, Made
his announcement about the profits, from his embroidered
shirt sale, and suggested, as sales were so great, that we
Give another scholarship. This idea was met by loud
applause, and we drew more cards, till the second
scholarship was determined.
Doc Nagl's Shirts can be purchased over the internet, by
clicking under the scholarship info on the home section of
our Web site. The profits all go to Scholarship fund!
Right after the Banquet was over, a brother, & his wife,
whom wishes to remain anonymous, told me they would
personally sponsor one $500.00 dollar scholarship, yearly.
The next day, one of The Dragoons Company Commanders, told
me He & His men, wanted to do the same, requesting to remain
anonymous. We now have Two Scholarships Guaranteed every
year, without fund raising. Now, just consider, what "WE"
can do, if the entire Brotherhood adds a few dollars!
To determine the winners next year, it could be done by a
different method. We are still in our Infancy, but as Long
as I chair this endeavor, there will be no chance of

First, this venture has a dual purpose. One is
to make money for the scholarship fund, & the other is to supply US, the
Ivy Dragoons & our Families with Quality merchandise at a sensible cost.
It will enable us to Proudly display our Unit on our clothing, and other
mi sc. items. All the items sold are of top quality. I have been doing
this for my car club, ( MG's of Baltimore Ltd.) for about 15 years. Selling at
car shows & the internet. When you see the prices, you will notice that
they are reasonable compared to other event items. Have you ever gone to
a car show & paid $15 or more for a T shirt? Also the T is not
embroidered but silk screened which washes off after a little time.

SHIPPING & HANDLING
All shipping will be done via USPS priority mail. They supply the
supplies & also pick up. Have to take it easy on me somehow.
You will only be charged the actual cost of shipping, unless of course
you want to tip me. LOL
1 to 2 shirts, or 1 hat & one shirt costs $4.50 I believe. Anything over
that, I will have to send you an invoice. If you have Pay Pal, my life
is simpler. If not, I can still send you an invoice via email, or by
phone, or by snail mail, or pony express. Check or MO is also
acceptable. I do believe that you can pay via credit card on pay pal.
(Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery. I cannot stock these items,
therefore it takes a little time. I place an order twice a week, so as
not to drive my supplier batty.)
PS: Any additions to the logo will be at an additional charge.
