Spur ride

Troopers from 1-227th Aviation, Task Force Attack, depart a CH-47 Chinook during the unit's winter Spur Ride. The Spur Ride is a tradition which dates back to the beginning of the U.S. Cavalry, where cavalry Troopers prove their tactical and technical skills, leadership, and teamwork over several days to earn the right to wear silver cavalry spurs.
