1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, TX Challenge Coin

$ 8.99 $ 10.00

The 1st Cavalry Division is the premier heavy division in the United States Army. It is known as “The First Team,” comprised of several heavy maneuver brigades, a combat aviation brigade, a sustainment brigade, and various other elements, including the 1st Cavalry Division’s unique Horse Detachment.

The legend of the “First Team” began in 1945 in the Philippines when the 1st Cavalry Division re-took Manila and General McArthur named them “The First Team.” They led the Allied Occupational Army into Tokyo—the “First Team.” They were the “First” to enter Pyongyang, North Korea, the “First” fully committed United States division in the Vietnam War. Action there earned them the only Presidential Unit Citation to be awarded to an Army division during the entire war. Next, 1st Cavalry was the “First” into Cambodia. The Division’s “firsts” go on and on: the “first” to field the M-88 Hercules recovery vehicle, the AH-64 Apache helicopter, the M2 Bradley fighting vehicle, and the HMMWV(hum-vee). Preparing for the invasion of Iraq, “The First Team” conducted a war of deception along the Saudi border that set up Desert Storm’s lightning military victory. Yet again, 1st Cavalry Division was the “first” U.S.-based division to deploy to Bosnia. Today’s “First Team” troops carry on the tradition of excellence that has been the division’s hallmark from its beginnings.

This special 1st Cavalry Division coin declares the spirit of the division. The obverse reads “1st Cavalry Division—Live the Legend.” The reverse is engravable, suitable for name, dates of service, or message. The coin is highlighted with rich enamels in the division colors.
