Cold War and 1990s

During the Cold War the Regiment was responsible for guarding the Iron Curtain, acting as a tripwire for the long expected but never materializing, Russian invasion of Western Europe. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe meant the Regiment had to now redefine it's role. During this process, the Regiment was alerted for deployment to Saudi Arabia in response to the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq. The regiment spearheaded the VII Corps end-run deep into Iraq during the Persian Gulf War. Returning from the Gulf, the Regiment was relocated from Germany to Fort Lewis, Washington. The Regiment's ground squadrons were converted into a light cavalry unit consisting of Humvees mounted with TOW launchers, MK-19 grenade launchers, .50 caliber machine guns and squadron assault weapons (SAW). The 2d ACR "light" was then sent to Ft Polk, LA in 1992. From here, the Regiment deployed in support of Peace enforcement operation in Haiti during 1995 to 1996. 3d Squadron "Wolfpack" was the first ground unit to deploy and operated under the 25th Infantry Division in Port au Prince, Haiti.
