Army announces winter 3rd Cavalry Regiment Rotation
FORT CAVAZOS, Texas — The Department of the Army announced Friday the upcoming winter rotation of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, to the Republic of Korea.
The 3rd Cavalry Regiment “Brave Rifles” are scheduled to replace the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, as part of a regular rotation of forces to support the United States’ commitment to the Republic of Korea in early 2024.
“This rotation is a historic first time in Korea in the Regiment’s 177 years of service. Our Brave Rifles Troopers are tough and ready to train together as part of this incredibly strong alliance.” said Col. Jeffery J. Barta, 80th Colonel of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division.
The 3rd Cavalry Regiment of Mounted Riflemen was authorized by an act of Congress in 1846 and fought in every major campaign from the Mexican-American War to Operation Enduring Freedom – receiving multiple battle streamers and honors over the decades.
The unit completed a successful rotation to the National Training Center in the summer of 2023 and continued to train at Fort Cavazos while positioning equipment for movement since August. Today, 3rd Cavalry Regiment stands ready to deter aggression and if deterrence fails “Fight Tonight” in order to support the Republic of Korea and US Alliance.
