1st Squadron, 16th Cavalry Regiment provides POI and non-standard mission support requirements to the 316th Cavalry Brigade, the Armor School and Maneuver Center of Excellence, and develops Soldiers and Leaders on individual, MOS-specific and collective skills to provide the maneuver force with trained, agile, adaptive, and combat ready Soldiers and Leaders performing as part of a combined arms team.
VISION: Our business is Leader Development at all levels. Every soldier/trooper/family member deserves good leadership!
PHILOSOPHY: The Army continues to be at war – we prepare ourselves our soldiers and our family members for the conflict that we are in today, and for the protracted conflict of tomorrow. In a world of limited resources, most importantly time, we must achieve the highest level of Soldier and Leader skills. Training is the key to Leader Development. It includes warfighting for the full spectrum of operations, but it also includes before, during and after maintenance in all areas not just on vehicles and equipment, but our personal and professional lives, as well as physical fitness, discipline, and attitude. We can't buy these once we are in the fight, so we must work to instill them here. Furthermore, at some point we will all end our time in the military. Many of these traits and skills will become useful in civilian life, as well as enhance the quality of life when that time arrives.
Listed below are some of the principles to help you understand how we will operate:
