    The 28th Infantry Regiment “Casing Ceremony” will be held 9 April 2015 at Fort Riley, KS. All former Black Lions are invited to attend, we would love to recognize you in the audience. This ceremony is In preparation of the reassignment and re-flagging of the 1-28th Infantry Regiment to 3 Brigade, 3rd ID at Fort Benning. GA. The reassignment and uncasing of the Regimental Colors will occur at Fort Benning in the month of June 2016.

      Just to clarify; there is no such thing as a former Black Lion. Once you have been a part of, served, shot at, fought and engaged the enemy, you are ALWAYS a BLACK LION, even in the afterlife. Sorry I missed the ceremony…

    I am searching for 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry veterans of the 5/6-March 1966 Battle of Lo Ke (Operation Cocoa Beach).
    I have collected numerous articles concerning the battle, the ORLL & AAR and 1972 satellite images of the area.
    Helping the Vietnamese find the resultant mass-grave of possible 180 remains is the purpose of my endeavor.
    Your responses with be greatly appreciated by many.
