Fellow Ramrods,

I would like to take a moment and invite Ramrods of all generations to the Ramrod Battalion Ball taking place on February 27th, 2020 in Lake Charles, LA. The event is a chance for our Soldiers, Veterans of the Regiment, our Families, and guests to come together and celebrate our Regiment’s long history and have a night of fun.

We are excited to have COL(R) Pete Newell as our guest speaker and also, to formally induct him as the Honorary Colonel of the Regiment as part of the night’s ceremony.

The Ball will take place at the L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles, LA, which offers a number of activities and entertainment for our guests and is approximately 1.5 hours from the battalion’s home at Fort Polk, LA.

Most importantly, this event can bridge all generations of Ramrod Veterans to share in our common heritage of service, to show our young Soldier’s our vibrant veterans association, and continue to build and share the bonds which have served our Regiment so well over its 211 years of service to our Nation. I hope to see you there.
