Troop E - 108th Cavalry Regiment
"Come What Will"
Troop E 108 Cavalry is the separate cavalry troop of the 48th Brigade, Georgia Army National Guard. A heavy troop consists of at least 6 officers and 126 enlisted soldiers: two scout platoons; two tank platoons; and maintenance, mortar, and HQ sections. Additional assets such as medics, ground surveillance radar, air defense, and engineer teams are assigned to the Troop as missions dictate.
The Troop is a self-contained fighting force complete with its own artillery support. As such, it is highly mobile, given to decentralized actions, and maintains a high operational tempo.
The Spalding Grays as Company D. 2nd Battalion Infantry was the first unit from Spalding County to be mustered into the Confederate Army. It was followed by eight regular and several militia companies. The Spalding Grays have continued through the years as a unit of the Georgia National Guard serving in war and peace, military and civillian emergencies. Today the Grays serve as Troop E 108 Cavalry.
