Cavalry scouts receive cross saber at end of course

In July, the first Cavalry scout trainees arrived at Fort Benning to complete their advanced individual training. On Wednesday — eight weeks later — 66 of 68 Soldiers from E Troop, 5th Squadron, 15th Cavalry Regiment, received their U.S. Army Cavalry (enlisted) Branch Insignia brass following the successful completion of a 20K Boot March. The insignia represented the completion of not only the situational training exercise but their rite of passage to becoming Cavalry scouts.
