Interview with Sgt. Noel S Higgins, 1st Cavalry Div. WWII Pacific Theater

Stable Sergeant C Troop, 112th Cavalry, 56th Brigade
Born, Deaf Smith, TX 1916

Formation: Organized from six existing units of the Texas National in Central Texas on 13 February, 1929, the 124th Cavalry is the youngest of the ten combat arms regiments of the Texas National Guard. The lineage of the various units of the 124th generally is traced to Texas cavalry deployed during the First World War for Mexican border security service, including the Third, Fifth, and Seventh Texas Cavalry, 1917. Units of the 124th did state duty to enforce martial law at Borger in 1929, in Sherman in 1930, and in the East Texas oil field disorders when the entire 56th Cavalry Brigade (112 Cav /124 Cav) was ordered there in 1931. With the other units of the Texas National Guard, the 124th Cavalry Regiment (horse) was federalized in November, 1940.

World War II: After initial training at Fort Bliss, the 124th was restationed at Fort Brown, Brownsville, Texas and Fort Ringgold at Rio Grande City. The Regiment participated in the Louisiana maneuvers and patrolled the border with Mexico from Brownsville to Laredo. After its sister regiment, the 112th Cavalry was sent overseas, the 124th continued its Mexican border service until it was moved to Fort Riley, Kansas, in 1944. It then was the last horse cavalry unit in the U. S. Army.

MARS Task Force: In 1944 the unit was selected for overseas service in the China-Burma-India Theater to provide reinforcements for Merrill’s Marauders and the Chindits. Leaving its horses at Fort Riley, the 124th was reinforced in Burma by the 613th Field Artillery battalion to form the 124th Regimental Combat Team (Special), part of the “MARS Task Force”. After a killing, 300-mile approach march over difficult terrain, leading a mule supply train, the unit fought the Japanese in Burma and China from 1944 to the end of the war. Their efforts are credited with forcing Japanese withdrawal from northern Burma,allowing for full use of the Burma Road to China. The fighting was characterized by operations deep in enemy territory, extensive use of pack mules, and the use of aerial resupply.

On Wednesday, November 2nd, Sergeant Anthony Beminio of the Des Moines Police Department was murdered in his patrol car, one of two area officers to suffer this fate on that day. His funeral was held on Monday, November 7, with over 1,500 law enforcement officers in attendance. Sgt. Beminio was escorted to his final resting place by hundreds of police and other emergency vehicles from nearly that many different departments. I filmed this video of the procession leaving the church and heading north on Jordan Creek Parkway towards the interstate. What is not visible in this video is the sheer number of people who lined the route taken by the procession to show their support for Sgt. Beminio, his family, and all of our law enforcement officers.
