Abstract:

The State Defense Force of the United States is a group of men and women who perform a myriad of missions in support of the military and civilian infrastructure. The Maryland Defense Force MDDF undertakes missions in support of the Maryland National Guard and the citizens of the state. To that end, MDDF Cavalry Troop A was formed and recruited with highly specialized personnel who can make a difference. This article describes the missions of MDDF Troop A. It is the authors intent that other organizations see the benefits of forming a horse cavalry and will emulate what has been done in the State of Maryland. The MDDFs current Headquarters is located on the Pikesville Military Reservation, a facility initially constructed to house a troop of the Maryland National Guards horse cavalry.
