Jaykob Pruitt Obituary, Death Cause – Specialist Jaykob Pruitt was a member of the Oklahoma Army National Guard for two years before being moved to Bravo Troop 1-180th Cavalry as a dismounted scout in 1st Reconnaissance Platoon. In this role, he is responsible for conducting reconnaissance missions on foot. Prior to this, he had served in the Oklahoma Army National Guard as a member of the organization. In 2022, he successfully performed the challenging Cavalry Spur Ride as part of his Annual Training at Fort Riley, where he had been stationed since the previous year.
Yesterday, men of the 1-180th Cavalry were responsible for the funeral and burial of Specialist Jaykob Pruitt. When our brother was impacted by this disaster, it was a moment that was both proud and sad for us at the same time since we felt that our brother had been affected. Please accept our deepest condolences and forward them on to his family, friends, and fellow service members.
This was done so that they may honor him in the Cavalry tradition. Along with it, a set of silver spurs and a tomahawk were placed inside as mementos of his commitment and service to this great country and state, respectively. You can sleep easy, my brother, knowing that we shall catch up with you at Fiddler’s Green in the near future.
As a consequence of this, he was rewarded with his Silver Spurs in recognition of his achievement. He was an honorable soldier who lived up to the highest expectations for his duties as a Cavalry Scout by doing them to the best of his abilities. He was the member of our team with the most talent, and he was also an experienced soldier. In order to pay their respects to Specialist Jaykob Pruitt in the customary fashion of the Cavalry, the members of the 1-180th Cavalry removed their Crossed Sabers from their Stetsons and placed them in the casket.
