distinctive unit crest of the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment recalls
the notable early history of the unit. The gold background is
symbolic of the Cavalry and its branch color. The blue band recalls
the color of the blue uniform worn by the troops when the Regiment
was activated in 1901. The black Moro "kris" represents the more
than forty engagements, expeditions and skirmishes in which the
Regiment participated during the Philippine Insurrection. The coiled
rattle snake in the lower left of the Regimental shield is symbolic
of the Regiment's service in the west and along the Mexican Border
during the period 1902 - 1918. The motto of the Regiment is "SUIVEZ
MOI" meaning ... Follow Me.

From combat in France and Germany,
to the Constabulary period and then service along the inner German
border starting with the first days of the Cold War until 1972, the
Regiment has a long and distinguished history. New pages in that
history are being written today in Iraq. The First Squadron was
re-activated in 2000 at Fort Lewis as part of the new, high tech
unit development program and is now deployed in Northern Iraq. These
links take you to the 14th ACR web site and the sub page devoted to
the Warhorse Squadron and actions in Iraq.
To tell the story of the Eaglehorse
squadron in Germany, many troopers from the 2/14 ACR have generously
provided recollections and images that recall their service in Bad
Kissingen. The first days on the border and subsequent evolution of
the surveillance mission, the beginning of the forward border camp,
Daley Barracks through the years and the changes of armored cavalry
equipment and the US Army come alive through their words and photos.
In time line order, scenes captured by the troopers of the 2nd
Squadron ... Suivez Moi!
