1st Squadron, 6th Armored Cavalry, was reactivated at Fort Meade in 1967 during the Vietnam buildup.  During the summer of 1970, the 2nd and 3rd Squadrons were inactivated.  The 1st Squadron remained with a three-fold mission of civil disturbance control in Washington, D.C., support of First Army and Fort Meade, and training as an armored cavalry unit.
