2/1 Cav is also active again:
On June 1, 2006 at Ft Lewis, WA, a large Army reflagging ceremony occurred. The 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry’s colors were cased, the colors of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment were transferred, and the 4th Brigade, 2d Infantry Division colors were uncased. The 2d Squadron, 1st Cavalry’s colors were uncased as part of this latter ceremony. Our unit is alive once again after a 10 year stand down.

- 6/1 Cav is active as the RSTA squadron for 1/1 AD at Ft. Bliss. Currently, there are only about 80 people in the squadron, with expectations for it to reach full strength in September of 2008. It'll be deploying sometime next year, with the rest of 1st HBCT. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
