2nd Cavalry Regiment

The 2nd Cavalry Regiment, also known as the 2nd Dragoons, is an active stryker infantry and cavalry regiment of the United States Army. The Second Cavalry Regiment is headquartered at the Rose Barracks in Vilseck, Germany. Founded in 1836, the regiment has the distinction of being the “Longest Active Serving Cavalry Regiment in the United States Army.”

Unit Insignia

The 2nd Cavalry Regiment insignia is a black disc with a yellow border, a yellow octagonal with concave sides a green scalloped circle bearing a white fleur-de-lis all above a green motto scroll bearing the inscription "Toujours Prêt" in yellow letters. The yellow octagon symbolizes the eight-pointed star insignia worn by dragoons, the 2d Cavalry having been originally formed as the Second Regiment of Dragoons in 1836. The green scalloped circle, simulating a palmetto leaf, represents the Regiment's first action against the Seminole Indians in Florida, where the palmetto leaf grows in abundance. The fleur-de-lis is for combat service in France in both World War I and World War II. The motto "Toujours Prêt" (Always Ready) expresses the spirit and élan of the Regiment.
