Is Awarded To

CPL. Argus Jon
Charlie Company 1st Battalion

For

Exceptional Meritorious service to the 7th Cavalry as a Non-Commissioned Officer.CPL. Argus took it upon himself to write a short manual and trainers guide for Squad and Section Leaders to train their troopers on how to effectively utilize the M3 MAAWs weapon system. Instead of just sharing this information with his squad, CPL. Argus delivered the material in such a format that all SLs could incorporate it into their practices. This approach not only reflects credit upon himself as an Anti-Tank subject matter expert, but reflects highly upon the values of the regiment, such as teamwork and leadership.

Is Awarded To

SPC.Brostrom, Andreas
Charlie Company 1st Battalion

For

Exceptional Meritorious Service to the 7th Cavalry Regiment in the Enlisted Ranks. Specialist Brostrom, Andreas has contributed to his Company by stepping up during a time where his Squad, 3/1/C/1-7, lost their Squad Leader. Specialist Brostrom has ensured practices continued to run for his Squad members and ensured a smooth transition into other Squad's for him and the rest of his Squad. In addition to this Specialist Brostrom has contributed to his secondary billet within S3 Battle Staff through the overhaul of loadout scripts and is working on creating a new equipment template for a middle eastern army which will allow for more diverse OPFOR in 1BN Operations. His actions are an excellent example of what troopers within the 7th Cavalry should strive for.

Congratulations!​

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our new home. This site is the result of of a combined effort to make everyone's life easier.

Back in June, IPB4 was being released and I thought it would be a good idea for us to adapt it as soon as possible. Our old site had started looking dated. My original intention was to switch over to IPB4 and commission a professional designer to build us a skin for the ground up.

However it wouldn't ever be that simple. The first thing I encountered when I cloned our site and upgraded to 4 was MILPACS. The new content management system in IPB4 completely ruined the way that MILPACS and all of our other custom pages functioned. There was literally no possible way to port MILPACS over without doing a complete re-write. At that point we decided that we were going to have to expand our plans a bit if we ever wanted to switch. We couldn't simply stay on the same version of IPB forever, as eventually support would be dropped and security flaws wouldn't get patched.

7 Months later, thanks to the combined effort of many dedicated people. We're approaching our launch date and I am incredibly excited to see us do so. The next few weeks will be interesting, but once we get moved over a lot of people will have to do less redundant work thanks to the new MILPACS system. Please bear with us as we sort out any final kinks on the site.

A huge thank you goes out to S1 for their hard work and dedication in getting MILPACS moved over.
I'd also like to thank the rest of the command team for their support, as well as anyone else who has put work into this site. We're almost done.
