of the Association.
Since 1901, troopers of the 14th Cavalry have fought in Asia, Europe and on the southern border of our homeland. During
the Cold War the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment stood guard for 23
years at the most critical sector of the Iron Curtain. Beginning in
September 2000, 14th Cavalry RSTA (Reconnaissance, Surveillance, &
Target Acquisition) squadrons returned to active service. From a
high of four squadrons, the two remaining squadrons are home-based
at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (formerly Fort Lewis), WA and Schofield Barracks, HI.
The 1st Squadron deployed to Northern Iraq in 2003. The mission
was assumed by the 2nd Squadron in October 2004 and, in turn, by the
4th Squadron in September 2005. The 1st Squadron returned to Iraq in
August 2006 and the 4th Squadron's tour was extended. Our 2nd
Squadron was reflagged as a squadron of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in June 2006. Upon
finally returning from Iraq our 4th Squadron was reflagged as 5th
Squadron 1st Cavalry. The 1st Squadron returned from their second
tour to Fort Lewis in September 2007. Our newest addition, the 5th Squadron was activated
at Schofield Barracks, HI on 13 October 2005
and was redesignated as our 2nd Squadron in December 2006. The 2nd
Squadron returned from Iraq by April 2009 and redeployed for its
second Iraqi tour in August 2010, returning in the summer of 2011. Our regiment's latest deployment is that of our 1st Squadron to Afghanistan in December 2011.
