Please remember those who served and have died. Not all are taken in combat or violence but each are part of our military family and they are not forgotten.
Happy Birthday Army!
Fire chief returns home after year long deployment in Romania.
It takes a team to fight and win on the battlefield. While our armor, infantry, cavalry, and artillerymen are at the forefront of battle, they can't take it to the enemy without all the Troopers supporting them. From mechanics to truck drivers to cooks, our support personnel play essential roles in our formation.
Our own BCT S4 CPT Rutz is just one of many Troopers who contribute immeasurably to the brigade's success. While armor and cavalry leaders are recognized with the Order of Saint George Award, we recognize the contributions of those supporting mounted formations with the Noble Patron of Armor award. CPT Rutz' commitment to our formation is without equal, and this award is a testament to his dedication. Congratulations CPT Rutz! Sine Mora!
Great news for our Troopers in 3rd Battalion, 116th Cavalry in the Oregon National Guard.
Today, the Army welcomed its newest batch of school-trained armor officers into its ranks. They'll serve as platoon leaders, entrusted with leading our young men and women into harms way.
We are very proud that the Distinguished Honor Graduate was our own 2LT Batz from 1st Squadron, 221st Cavalry in the Nevada Army National Guard. His selection is a testament to his commitment to the profession of arms.
Congratulations to 2LT Batz and the entire graduating class. Well done! Sine Mora!
Our Troopers get a shout out from the Director of the Army National Guard.

Our signal company and the brigade command post conducted a Mission Command Validation Exercise this last weekend. Capabilities were tested over satellite, line-of-sight, and local cabling. Effective communication within the brigade is essential for mission success. These Soldiers' skills immediately translate into civilian Information Technology careers. Let us know if you are interested in joining this part of our team. #DefendWhatMattersMost
