Fort Hood's 1st Cav proudly road in 2019 Tarrant County Vets Day Parade

FORT WORTH – Blustering winds and plummeting temperatures couldn’t deter a group of mounted soldiers from proudly riding down Main Street last year as part of the 100th  annual Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade.


The famed Horse Cavalry Detachment of the 1st Cavalry Division, based at Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas, is one of seven mounted cavalry units on active duty in the United States Army, and they bring to life the spirit of the equestrian soldier wherever they perform.
