Mission

Charlie Company's mission is to provide an environment for all future and current members to gather together to enjoy Hell Loose with one another. We host multiple weekly internal/external PVP events and conduct several School of Infantry classes designed to engage you with others inside and outside of our Company.

Military Occupational Specialties (MOS)

11C - Combat Engineer

US combat engineer setting a satchel charge in World War II.

Combat engineers facilitate movement and support of friendly forces while impeding those of the enemy. Combat engineers build fighting positions, fortifications, and roads. They conduct demolition missions and clear minefields manually or through use of specialized vehicles. Typical combat engineer missions include construction and breaching of trenches, tank traps and other obstacles and fortifications; obstacle emplacement and bunker construction; route clearance and reconnaissance; bridge and road construction or destruction; emplacement and clearance of land mines; and combined arms breaching. Usually, a combat engineer is also trained as an infantryman, and combat engineer units frequently fight alongside the infantry or fight as infantry as a secondary mission.

19D - Cavalry Scouts

The Cavalry Scouts are a specialty trained platoon or section of infantry soldiers. Unlike a traditional infantry platoon whose primary mission is to close with and destroy the enemy, the Cav Scouts primary mission is to provide the battalion commander information about the enemy. The battalion commander uses the Cav Scouts to gather critical battlefield information. This information is then used in planning and execution of combat operations.

11B - Infantry

The Infantry are experts in individual skill and teamwork coordination. Through larger platoon actions, whether in defense or offense, the infantry squad utilizes all member classifications to overwhelm the enemy and seize the objective. Members of the Infantry are masters in land warfare, communication, and tactical movement. In the Infantry, every member is a rifleman first and a specialist second. As a trooper, each rifleman will train extensively on marksmanship, control over their weapon systems, and team battle drills. Additionally, troopers train in coordination with other support elements to improve our combined arms operations.

Date of Award Name Citation
10MAY21 Sergeant Norm Goings For exceptionally meritorious service to 2nd Platoon, Charlie Company, Second Battalion. Sergeant Norm Goings distinguished himself by crafting a new document for the Combat Engineer (11C) MOS. He dedicated multiple hours researching the real life MOS documents and created one single document that clearly spells out and defines the MOS. Sergeant Norm Going's document helped open the gateway to create an entire platoon of Combat Engineers. This document helped 2/C/2-7 obtain the red/white engineer cords that they had been working towards for 6-8 months. Sergeant Norm Going’s dedication to duty and exceptionally meritorious service are in great credit to themselves and the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment.
11MAY21 Sergeant Eric Kinser For contributions in Alpha Section, Second Platoon, Charlie Company, Second Battalion. Sergeant Eric Kinser distinguished himself by attending and conducting his weekly section practice while on the road in a hotel due to work. Sergeant Kinser went above and beyond his duties as section leader in making sure that he had the ability to attend his section practice while on a laptop in his hotel room. Sergeant Kinser could have taken a leave of absence while on the road but he displayed extreme dedication to his section and the 7th Cavalry by running the section practice.
