29 Stallions continue Army service at mass reenlistment ceremony

Soldiers assigned to the 2nd “Stallion” Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st “Ironhorse” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division stand at attention on the stage of Howze Auditorium during the Stallion’s mass reenlistment ceremony, Oct. 30, at Fort Hood, Texas. Twenty-nine Stallion soldiers were reenlisted by Tampa, Fla., native, Lt. Col. Felix Perez, Stallion commander. “It’s an extreme honor for me to reenlist the amount of soldiers that we did,” Perez said. “Being prior enlisted and going through enlistments myself … I know how it feels for each soldier.” Families attended the event, and spouses received flowers and a Certificate of Appreciation for their support. Perez said spouses are the backbone of the military family. “Without them we would not be able to accomplish our missions,” Perez added. (U.S. Army photo by Pfc. Paige Pendleton, 1st BCT, 1st Cav.
