1st Battalion, 48th Infantry Regiment executes Basic Combat Training where leaders transform civilian volunteers into adaptable, physically prepared Soldiers trained in core military skills capable of contributing as effective team members.


The Dragoons are a dedicated team forged by tough, demanding, standard-based training tempered by an absolute commitment to excellence, the Nation and the Profession of Arms. Trust solidifies the bond between competent, agile, decisive, caring leaders and the disciplined, fit, confident Soldiers they lead. We embody Army Values, Warrior Ethos, and Resiliency through our deeds, not words to overcome adversity. Our legacy is the ability to accomplish our mission and building the next generation of leaders, while caring for Soldiers and their Families.
