A Soldier with the 1st Cav. Div. Horse Cav. Det. participates in the National Cavalry Competition Sept. 22 in El Reno, Oklahoma.

First Team, first place


For the second year in a row, the 1st Cavalry Division Horse Cavalry Detachment won the General Casimir Pulaski Award for Outstanding Military Unit at the 2016 National Cavalry Competition Saturday in El Reno, Oklahoma.

The Pulaski Award is awarded to the military unit that best represents the highest standards of the U.S. Cavalry Association. The judging is based on event scores, military conduct, bearing and good sportsmanship.

"It's a big deal," said Capt. Jeremy Woodard, commander of the horse detachment. "To be able to take that back for the second year in a row and present the division with that streamer is an honor."

In addition to winning the Pulaski award, the detachment won ribbons in more than 15 different events throughout the weeklong competition.
