The history of the 85th Cavalry Reconnaisance Squad was documented in a hand drawn booklet that is 71 pages long. In order
to make that document available, it was converted into a PowerPoint Slide presentation. It is an excellent representation
of the original, however, this is a very large file (71 slides). Since Microsoft has never released an update to allow
office products to be viewed by any other browser than Internet Explorer, you will need to use IE (or Firefox with the
optional ieTab) and a high speed internet connection to view the presentation. Even then, the slides can be a bit slow in
loading so please be patient.

My sincere thanks to Will Cook and Greg Smith (grandson of H.C. Smith: Troop A, 85th Cavalry Recon. Sq. Mecz.) for their
invaluable help in making this document available.
