This book traces the lineage & honors of the currently active 55 Army National Guard Armor & Cavalry regiments. The lineage of a unit is its military history. It includes the organization of a unit, its entry into Federal service, & any reorganizations, redesignations or conversions the unit may have undergone. The honors of a unit consist of wartime campaigns & unit decoration streamers. Lineages for National Guard units are published at the regimental level as are the lineage & honors of the regiments included in this book. If a regiment is authorized a distinctive unit insignia it is shown to the left of its regimental designation.

A handy little volume that deals with Armor-Cavalry Regiments in the National Guard. This edition published in 1995. The book does not have present campaigns, Desert Shield/Storm, Kosovo and War on Terror, Iraqui Freedom or Enduring Freedom credits, but all these units in part or whole have served in these operations.
