The 1st Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment – (1st Regiment of Dragoons) – is the most decorated unit in the United States Army. It can trace its roots back to 1776. Follow the link below to read more about the Squadron and its history.
In 1967 the Squadron was detached from the 1st Armored Division, Ft. Hood, Texas. Troops, A, B and C shipped out to Vietnam aboard the troop ship USS Walker. D Troop, the aviation unit, would follow in 1968. The Squadron eventually became part of the Americal Division.
Standby….. a more complete and accurate history of the Squadron in Vietnam will be posted in the near future. The plan is to get it up after the August 2019 reunion.
