Great Photo today...thank You, FrankenMonkey!
Typical officer, has clipboards & maps in 1 arm, rifle in the other......
During “Operation Bull Whip,” approximately 2,200 Afghan and coalition troops moved into the Galuch Valley, Laghman Province. Starting March 25, the Red Bull soldiers were to search out enemy personnel and equipment, so that Afghan government officials could assemble local leaders at a community meeting called a “shura,” and subsequently establish a district-level presence.
Most of the 2-34th BCT is currently organized as “Task Force Red Bulls,” headquartered at Bagram Airfield (”BAF”). News reports on the operation specifically mentioned involvement of Iowa units such as the 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry Regiment (1-133rd Inf.); 1st Squadron, 113th Cavalry Regiment (1-113th Cav.); and 334th Brigade Support Battalion (B.S.B.). Laghman Province has been an area of responsibility of the 1-133rd Inf. since last November.
And I wonder if Obama has turned this territory back over to the Taliban yet?
Appreciate the additional info.
obama has them in his sights.
My SIL (Sarge-1) mustered out of Ganny just before XPmass.
He is infantry attached to 1st-Cavalry. Good soldier, good christian, good father (to my threee Grand-kiddies).
He might want that on his headstone in about 80 years...
