The department is led by the Auxiliary Commander with the help of the SPD, and maintains the department's strength, and is responsible for monthly reports and awards.


The mission of the Auxiliary Combat Detachment is to grow the ranks of the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment by identifying, educating, and inviting prospective members, by adding additional games of interest.
