74th’s Priorities: A New Year for the Regiment

As we conclude the new equipment training, we transition our focus on warfighting and training to accomplish our wartime mission as a Regiment. Specifically, now with all our equipment on hand, we have the opportunity to start training as a combined arms team. We will continue to focus on leader development which is a cornerstone of the Regiment's legacy, and grow combined arms leaders through intense situational training and live fire training exercises (STX/LFX). Through combined arms platoon level and troop/battery level training we will develop and foster a combined arms culture which has been synonymous with this Cavalry Regiment for the last 60 years.
