1st Armored Brigade Combat Team

COL John DiGiambattista
CSM Joseph Cornelison

"Ironhorse"

1st Brigade Combat Team

The Ironhorse Brigade is a unit rich in heritage with cavalry, artillery, and logistic units dating back before the Civil War era. The brigade has proudly served in the Pacific during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and deployed most recently four times in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn. The Brigade was one of the last units out of Iraq in December 2011 as operations ended.

The Ironhorse Brigade is a disciplined Brigade Combat Team that deploys on order, executes any assigned mission successfully, and wins every fight. We excel in conditions of uncertainty and stress, and we possess the physical and mental toughness to overcome every form of hardship and obstacle. We always expect to win, regardless of the difficulties caused by enemy actions, the environment, or available resources. We share ownership in all that the Ironhorse Team does and we will always protect the reputation of this unit. We have high expectations and trust of our Leaders, our subordinates and our comrades. Family members, Cavalry Troopers, and Leaders in Ironhorse Brigade are winners!
