Introduction

The main mission of the 2nd Battalion in the 7th Cavalry regiment is to provide a sense of brotherhood, integrity, and structure for all it's members, while in a mature and respectful environment playing the supported games that everyone loves.

  • Brotherhood - The bond between trooper (both enlisted and commissioned), grow through the time playing together, to where everyone feels that they belong.
  • Integrity - It is vastly important that every trooper holds a high degree of integrity while in the Cavalry, which should then translate over into the real world. From being at a section practice every week to attending to more specific duties, a trooper must have a great deal of honesty.
  • Structure - Even though often we as a group can be laid back, there is always a sense of structure throughout the ranks. There is a time and place both to goof off and to get down to business. Here in 2nd Battalion, it is crucial that everything is kept tidy and structurally sound.

Traditions and History

2nd Battalion, being the original and oldest Battalion has created a number of historical milestones and events.

Hell Let Loose Training Camp Assistance

In late July 2020, Members of Alpha Company and Charlie Company were informed a member of the Hell Let Loose Training Camp (HLLTC) named Chef was seriously injured in real life. The individual's recovery time was assessed to be significant. In recognition for the support HLLTC had provided to the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment, several members of both HLL Companies decided that they should assist him. Several members provided assistance directly to the family of Chef, going far beyond their duties in the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment. This event captured the attention of the 2nd Battalion Executive Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Zachary Larouche, and the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment at large. He wrote in a signed letter: "Let this show what a community will do when met with adversity, and what will happen when a few dedicated members step up to in their own small way to make our community great.". The letter was jointly signed by the Regimental Commanding Officer, General John Chance.
