These are the names of the "Blue Panthers" that we have knowledge of. All years.  If you know of a "Blue Panther" that
is not listed, please contact the
webmaster. We need a set of orders with their name, a company roster or other information
showing he was assigned to the 1/8th Cav. Attach a copy to the email you send. We have had several people try to get their
name listed, but when we ask for verification, no further contact from them.  Thank you.
The Distinguished Service Cross, also known as the DSC, is our Nation's second highest award for valor, second only to the Medal of
Honor.  The Distinguished Service Cross was created during the First World War and was signed into law by President Woodrow
Wilson on January 2, 1918.
