On the day of its organization, 04 April 1921, the 1st Cavalry Division was composed of two cavalry brigades, one horse artillery battalion with combat and service units. Each of the brigades was made up of two regiments, each having two squadrons of three troops each, a headquarters and headquarters troop along with a service troop. The Division was authorized a staff of 7,463 officers and enlisted men.

Spanning the next 78 years, the Division engaged in three major wars, three peace keeping occupations that covered three continents. Learning from those experiences the Division reorganized and re-equipped on four occasions in order to meet the ever-changing threats to our democracy.

The Division has grown and at the end of 2000 was authorized a staffing level of 17,000 officers and enlisted men. It is now configured as a heavy armored division, consisting of three maneuver brigades, an aviation brigade, engineer brigade, division artillery and division support command plus a band, a ceremonial horse detachment, an air defense battalion, a signal battalion, a military intelligence battalion and a military police company. The "First Team" remains a combat proven force ready to deploy and fight anywhere, anytime and win.
