The Saint Matthias Cadets, formed in 1955, was a junior marching and maneuvering and parade corps based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They were sponsored by St. Matthias Parish and Krejci-Braun-Meier VFW Post 7485. The corps’ colors were black, white, and red. Awards included 1960-64 Wisconsin Spectacle of Music Class A Championship, and the 1960-61 VFW State Championship. The Cadets were active through at least 1972.
