Below is an article by Keith Rogers of the LVRJ on SPC Dave Stimmell of our Mortar Platoon. SPC Stimmell served in Vietnam and is now preparing to serve his country with the Wildhorse Squadron. In addition, he has three sons currently serving in the U.S. Army. Way to go SPC Stimmell!!

National guard units are pretty unique in that they are very regimented compared to active duty units. This is highly reflected by the troopers of the Wildhorse Squadron in that we have nine sets of brothers currently serving in the unit! Not many other units can boast that.....We truly are a "Band of Brothers". Thanks again to Jason Bean and Keith Rogers for their continued support.
Below are a couple of links showing our farewell and a slideshow created by the Las Vegas Review Journal. Thanks so much to Keith Rogers and Jason Bean of the RJ for all of their support!!
Hello all and welcome to the 1st Squadron 221st Cavalry deployment to Afghanistan blog. The 1-221 CAV, or Wildhorse Squadron, is a Nevada Army National Guard Armored Reconnaissance Squadron. We were ordered to active duty in April of 2009 (this year) and will deploy to Afghanistan this summer to provide security for the Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRT's) in country. We have a unique mission because we will be de-centralized throughout the country to provide security for all of the United States owned PRT's in country (about 12). Visit the International Security Assistance Force website for more details.
