“Garryowen” will honor the life of one of its recently-lost troops on Monday, celebrating the life of a soldier who earlier in the year helped lead their team to an overall fourth-place finish at the Gainey Cup, the competition for the world’s best cavalry scout team.

Jermaul Terrance Sledge, 31, posthumously promoted to the rank of sergeant first class, died at his Killeen residence Nov. 14. He was a cavalry scout with Blackhawk Troop, 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment “Garryowen,” 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division.
