I see that the soldiers of the 256th Brigade Combat Team (Tigers!) are deploying to Iraq. That's the unit I retired from (1/156) and it's tough to see them go. My unit is now called 2nd squadron, 108th Cavalry, based out of Shreveport. At the time I retired, it was a heavy tank battalion, fielding M1A2 Abrams tanks.
They're a storied brigade, with a long and honorable history that dates back to 1769, when it was a militia unit in New Orleans.
Godspeed, Tigers. Be safe. Do Louisiana proud.
