The painting, "The Charge" (above) by Jack Terry, perfectly depicting the overflight of the helicopters that formed the background of the Horse Detachment performing their historic "Charge". It represents the last fly over, conducted on December 2008, prior to the Iraq Deployment Color Casing Ceremony for the 1st Cavalry Division.
On order, Division Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion deploys to a designated contingency area of operations, supports, sustains, moves, and protects the 1st Cavalry Division Main Command Post and Tactical Command Posts in order to facilitate battle command and operations across the spectrum of conflict and provides forces and capabilities as directed in support of subordinate commands.
A division at war is a remarkable, flexible, vital and powerful force. The responses of the subordinate units require extraordinary discipline and initiative. The operational control nerve center of the force of the Division is the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion. It contains the divisional command structure, including the Commanding General, his staff and direct subordinates.
The history of the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion is a microcosm of the actions of individual units of the Division. The predisposed actions of the Division as a whole were those of the Headquarters and Headquarters Barralion. The Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, the analogy to a brain, has to fulfill its precise and exacting function under the most adverse conditions of war.
On 16 April 2010, as part of the Army's continued transformation towards a modular force, the Headquarters and Tactical Command Posts, 1st Cavalry Division was reorganized and redesignated as Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. As part of the reorganization, elements of the Battalion were structured to meet the changing needs to support and conduct the new warfare operations.
Organizational functions established for the subordinate elements of the Battalion are:
|HSC||Headquarters & Service Company|
|"B" Company||Integration & Supply|
In addition, the following subordinate units functionally reports to the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion.
|1st Cav Div HQ & HQ Battalion Organization|
