Heraldry in High Point, North Carolina, Part 7

Sometimes in High Point, I didn’t need to walk to see the heraldry; sometimes the heraldry was doing the walking around.

In this case, it was an older veteran with a tee shirt of the 3-6 Cavalry, Silver Spur. The 3rd Squadron, 6th Cavalry Brigade "Heavy Cav" was based at Camp Humphreys, South Korea from 1996 to 2002. The Silver Spurs were B Troop in the 3-6. The 3-6 flew Apache attack helicopters, the modern equivalent of medieval and later heavy cavalry. (Hence the cross sabers on the arms of the unit.) The 3rd Squadron, 6th Cavalry was inactivated on 15 June 2006.
