Alpha 2-7 Cav Vietnam Call Signs
Contributed by Bud Alley: “That I am aware of: In 1965, Gilligator was the original call sign for Alpha 2-7 Cav,
going into the Ia Drang. Mule Train was the BTN sign. Following Ia Drang, it was changed to Braveboy. Following the
Bong Son One in Jan-Feb 66, the call sign was changed at some point to Silent Slasher. The BTN sign was changed to
Jungle Lancer when Bob Litle took over as BTN CO.”

Contributed by SGT Mike Kovitch, RTO: "From July 66 to July 67, when I rotated I was one of two company RTO’s
assigned to A Company HDQTRS during this time. BTN HDQTRS call sign at that time was Cutting Edge and the call
sign for A Company was Diving Board."

Bengal Glory 68-69; and Cold Steel 70-71
