1st Squadron - 4th Cavalry Regiment

In 2007, the 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment was reactivated as part of the modular transformation of the 1st Infantry Division. 2nd Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment was inactivated and its personnel reflagged, with 1-4th Cavalry taking its place as the Brigade reconnaissance element for the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division.

As part of the modular transformation, each Brigade Combat Team included an organic cavalry squadron. The reactivated 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry consisted of a headquarters and headquarters troop, 2 motorized reconnaissance troops equipped with HMMWVs and one dismounted reconnaissance troop.

Prior to this reorganization, 1-4th Cavalry had acted as the 1st Infantry Division's divisional cavalry squadron. In that role it had consisted of a blend of tanks, Bradley Cavalry Fighting Vehicles and helicopters. It had been one of only 2 cavalry units in Europe, the other being assigned to the 1st Armored Division, also in Germany.
