A trooper may request one name change in during their career with the 7th Cavalry Regiment with the following stipulations:

  • Must be requested within the first 30 days of enlistment.
  • Names must include a realistic forename and surname; not necessarily your real name.
  • Troopers may not choose (within the limits of common sense) any of the following as names:
    • Historically important names
    • Actors
    • Musicians
    • Cartoon names
    • Names of importance from novels, television etc.
    • Religious names
  • Names cannot have any special characters or spaces in them as this causes problems with the MILPACS system.

Approval Authority

  • The RRD/ROO OIC/Staff Lead and RRD/ROO NCOIC have approval authority for all name change requests.
  • Exceptions to all of the above may be made at the discretion of the General Staff.
