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.
