1st Brigade Combat Team “Ironhorse,”
1st Cavalry Division
COL Steven Gilland
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!
