L'unité aurait débarqué sur Omaha Beach à D-DAY +2 , soit le 8 Juin 1944.
Il auraient énormément souffert fin 1944

Citation :
On the night of November 22, 1944, C Troop, 125th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, entered the beet fields just west of Beeck, Germany with 135 Men. On the night of December 16, after the area had been secured, C Troop walked back out with 36 Troopers.


Il a reçu avec deux de ses camarades la bronze star pour avoir à eux trois repoussé une attaque allemande. Les faits se sont déroulés à Aachen en Sept 44.

Voici le Daily Action Report du 125th Cav Rcn Sq ce 12/09/1944 :

Citation :
12 Sep 44: (615390, vicinity of Aachen, Germany). The Squadron advanced to the NE protecting the right flank of the 30th Inf Div. only light opposition was encountered, small arms and MG fire. Numerous road blocks, mined and booby-trapped, were found. Our artillery was brought to bear on several enemy infantry targets with good results.

Both Rcn Troops were reinforced by one platoon of Assault Guns each, which helped out considerably in stubbornly defended positions. Several dug in Germans were found along a railroad running into Aachen. Artillery was requested from the 30th Div and they responded with several direct hits. Track location (645405)
