There is something about hearing your company commander shout

"Comp-anee! FIX, bayo-nets!"

On the individual unit level, like Troop and below, we did plenty of bayonet training for our secondary role as National Guardsman instead of Cav Scouts.

As previously stated, I didn't carry one down range becaus I was a grenadier, but cold steel is very nice to have.

Next question: What kind of scabbard is issued for the -1901 bayonet?
