In 1963

Monday, June 24 — Honored guests of the 1963 rodeo, the Teddy Roosevelt Rough Riders, veterans of the 1st U.S. Voluntary Cavalry, were reduced to three this year: Jess Langdon, Long Island, N.Y.; Frank Brito of Las Cruces; and Charles O. Hopping, of Long Beach, Calif. They were honored during a reception at the Rough Riders Museum. The reunion was part of the 25th annual cowboys reunion and rodeo, held over a three-day period each June. Ninety-nine people signed the guest book at the museum, honoring the men who once stormed San Juan Hill under the leadership of Teddy Roosevelt.
