If memory serves me correctly, wasn't the 7th Cav almost disbanded in Viet Nam when they lost most of their soldiers in battles?? And I think this was the unit that Mel Gibson starred in. We Are The Brave or something like that.

The 7th is a very famous REGIMENT. The 1st Cav is a Division (a larger unit). I've had the honor of listening to the real then LTC Moore (ret. LTG!). 7th Cav continues to kick ass in Operation Iraqi Freedom and even in Falluja. Yes, Gibson played Moore in a movie, but in real life Moore makes Gibson look like a wimp!

Read Hal Moore's "We Were Soldiers Once, and Young", then you'll be up to speed on 1st Cav., at least during Vietnam. Garry Owen!
