Ironhorse safety leader at Fort Hood


With every battalion in the brigade earning streamers for safety, and earning recognition as the only brigade to not have a ‘Class A' or ‘Class B' accident on Fort Hood for 2016, Ironhorse Soldiers and leaders have accomplished a feat for an organization of more than 5,000 personnel and millions of dollars' worth of vehicles and equipment.

Throughout a complex and challenging year, Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team "Ironhorse," 1st Cavalry Division, garnered "Safety Excellence" streamers for all seven battalions, and nearly every company, for the fiscal year 2016.

"It means a lot because, as much as we've done as a brigade, from our rotation to National Training Center, to our rotation to South Korea, to all the bullets we've fired, all the gunneries we've done and the miles we've driven, it's been some intense training," said David Sullivan, safety officer, 1st BCT. "And to say we haven't lost a life, we haven't lost or damaged any Army property – that says a lot about the unit."
