FORT HOOD (September 13, 2012) --- Thursday marked the 91st birthday of the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood.
A welcome ceremony was held on Cooper Field and division leaders cut a cake inside the division headquarters.
Retiring soldiers were honored as new ones were welcomed to the 1st Cavalry Division.
Maj. Gen. Anthony Ierardi took the reins as commander of the division earlier this year.
"We're able to remember the service and sacrifice of those that came before us and to be able to reflect on the great work that our soldiers are doing today, we are part of a great military community and our soldiers have the opportunity to participate in that," Ierardi said.
