Stetsons and Spurs, a Cavalry Legacy


Written by Spc. Tracy Weeden
101st Combat Aviation Brigade

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionWings of DestinyAfghanistan – Cavalry soldiers stand apart from the rest of the crowd. They take great pride in their customs and traditions, much like a distinguished cultural. Their heritage drives their traditions and pride they carry.

The history of the cavalry can be traced back to 1776, when the U.S. cavalry was established with horse-mounted troopers. The role of the cavalry has always been reconnaissance, security and mounted assault. After World War II, the cavalry began phasing out horses and transitioning to a mechanized, mounted force.

They are seen wearing Stetson hats rather than normal head gear, and strapping spurs to their heals during formal cavalry events. But these items must be earned, they are not free.
