"Blackjack"

2nd Brigade Combat Team

The 2nd "Black Jack" Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division has led the way throughout its remarkable history. During World War II, "Black Jack" was first to storm the island of Leyte and reach the capital of Manilla during the liberation of the Philippines, and was the first allied unit to enter the city of Tokyo. They were the first of the 1st Cavalry Division's brigades to conduct operations in the Republic of Vietnam. During the Persian Gulf War, "Black Jack" was the first coalition unit to conduct offensive ground-operations in Iraq. They were 1st Cavalry Division's first brigade to deploy to Operation Iraqi Freedom and the first brigade to arrive in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. The Black Jack Brigade Combat Team stands ready to lead the way to any contingency area world-wide to provide a lethal, flexible and agile Heavy Brigade Combat Team to the Army to deploy, fight and win our Nation's wars.
