B Troop, 4th US Cavalry (Memorial) will host a Cavalry Riding School Graduation Ceremony 2-3 p.m. May 17 on Brown Parade Field.
The 4th Cavalry Regiment is one of the most famous and most decorated regiments in the United States Army. Since its activation in 1855, the 4th Cavalry has continuously served the United States of America in peace and war. The regiment has fought gallantly in the Indian Wars, the Civil War, the Philippine Insurrection, World War II, Vietnam and the Gulf War. The 4th Cavalry has been awarded 58 campaign streamers, three Presidential Unit Citations, three Valorous Unit Awards and the French Croix de Guerre with Silver Star for its wartime service.
The unit is officially established by regulation and funded by the Army. The unit has a zero-manpower authorization and relies solely on volunteers to fill its ranks. Members are drawn from Active Duty, Reserve, and Retired military personnel, Department of Defense civilians employed at Fort Huachuca, and military dependants 18 years of age. Members of the unit are uniformed, equipped, and armed in accordance with U.S. Cavalry standards of the 1880s. A Ladies Auxiliary supports B Troop, primarily by participating in parades riding sidesaddle and wearing period authentic clothing, and often assists with horse care and training. An artillery section known as K Battery also supports B Troop. These members do not ride, but operate the Troop’s 1840 mountain howitzer at ceremonies and public events.
