The 4th Platoon was happy to be meeting back in our old haunt. However, it is now under new ownership with a
new name…Paddy’s. We welcomed brother Sergeant Mule of the 6th Platoon as our guest. Brother Scott Jones
has stepped up and accept the reigns as the Sergeant of the 4th Platoon. We welcome
Scott to this position and look forward to
the new year with him at the helm.

On December 11th, 1Lt Terry hosted the 4th Platoon Christmas party at his house. We had brothers from the
1st, 5th ,10th , and also from 2-F. Awards were given to those who helped make the 2020 Annual such a
great success. As a special guest, Keven Walker and his son Daniel from New Market, VA came down to visit
and play some great music! Earlier in the day Bat. Capt. Ray and 1Lt Terry repaid some of Kevin’s hospitality
by giving them a personal tour of the historic battle sites our area has to offer. We all had a great time
and would like to thank Terry and
Trudy for hosting this event and letting us invade their home.

On December 13 the 10th Platoon was invited to participate in the Goshen Christmas Parade.
We were joined by the OCR, & The Virginia Flaggers and made a great showing.
Our float was VERY well received by all in attendance. In addition to 25lbs of candy we have out over
200 battle flags! The claps, thumbs up, nods, & cheers we received were awesome as well as a
reminder that we are not alone, everyone does not hate the south. I lost count of how many people
thanked us for participating and cannot express my pride in doing this event with so many others who support the cause!
While we may not have received an “official” award from the judges, the reaction we received
from the people in attendance made us
feel like we were the People’s Choice!

On Friday December 17, we had a special Christmas celebration with our brothers. We all met at Applebee's in
Lexington VA and enjoyed the fellowship only SCV MC folks can bring! Trooper Brandon Dorsey from the
10th joined us and honored us by saying grace. Tony Cave and Carl Todd from the 1st also graced us with their presence.
We also really appreciate the Mech Cav ladies who went out of their way to make this night special for us.
I also want to thank all across the SCV MC Nation who bought flags or t-shirts from us. Your generosity allowed
the 7th platoon to absorb some of the cost of this get together. Thank you all from the 1st, 7th,
and 10th Platoons who celebrated the reason for the season and our brotherhood.

bikes and over 20,000 toys collected. All of the toys were to be given to children at CAMC Women’s & Children's

We’ve lost another Mechanized Cavalry brother from amongst our ranks. It is with a heavy heart that I report
of Trooper John Smith’s passing. John (MC #1555) was a long time member of the 6th Platoon and lived in the
Franklin County area. John has left us to rest among the shade of yonder trees. John’s family requested that his
Mechanized Cavalry brothers take his ashes on an honorary Last Ride when the weather warms up. Sgt Mule
of the 6th Platoon let us know when and
where so we can show our support for brother John and his family.
