Nicknamed “Garryowen” for the instantly recognizable Irish air that it adopted as its march tune, the 7th Cavalry Regiment was constituted originally in the Regular Army as the 7th Cavalry. Over the course of its 150-plus years of existence, it has earned credit for participation in the Indian Wars, Mexican Expedition, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam, and Southwest Asia (First Gulf War) conflicts, and will likely earn credit for participation in either Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.
In 1957, the 7th was reorganized and redesignated as part of the Combat Arms Regimental System, but like many other Regiments it was withdrawn from the CARS and reorganized under the U.S. Army Regimental System as a parent regiment. Today, it comprises just three subordinate units , with the 1st Squadron and 2nd Battalion serving in the 1st and 3rd Brigade Combat Teams, respectively, under the 1st Cavalry Division; the 5th Squadron has been assigned as an Armored Reconnaissance Squadron in the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division.
