    After successfully completing the rigorous Denali Spur Ride, Army paratroopers assigned to the 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry Regiment (Airborne), 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, U.S. Army Alaska, are inducted into the Order of the Spur and awarded their silver spurs during a celebratory Spur Lunch held at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, March 13, 2020. The Spur Ride is a U.S. Army Cavalry tradition and a rite of passage for new troopers to the unit. The multi-day Denali Spur Ride, conducted under high levels of stress and fatigue, physically and mentally tested the paratroopers’ technical and tactical proficiency though a series of challenging tasks relevant to the Cavalry.
