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?
"Growing up as both a Southern and the son of a child of the '50s, I was imprinted with several things that have long stuck with me. The F-86 Saber Jet was the finest fighter ever flown, the National League is always superior, and Leslie Coffelt
was the finest revovler shooter since Mr. Ed."
