The Shape of the Surge

The specific U.S. Army brigades expected to participate:

1st Brigade of the 34th Infantry Division (The Red Bulls)

This may help explain why Sen. Coleman (R-MN) publicly condemned the surge. The 1st Brigade is a National Guard unit stationed in Stillwater, MN.







The 4th Brigade of the 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One).

This may help explain why Sen. Brownback (R-KS) publicly condemned the surge. The 1st Division is stationed at Ft. Riley, KS.








The 4th Stryker (Dragoon Raider) Brigade, 2nd Infantry (Indian Head) Division, based at Fort Lewis, WA, will deploy early;










The 2nd Brigade (Spartans), 3rd Infantry (Rock of the Marne) Division, based at Fort Stewart, GA, will deploy early;










And the 3rd Brigade (Sledgehammer), 3rd Infantry (Rock of the Marne) Division, based at Fort Benning, GA, will deploy early.









The 2nd (Falcon) Brigade of the 82nd Airborne (All-American) Division, based at Ft. Bragg, NC, has already started deployment.

So where's The First Team in all this. When I worked out of Biap in 2004 they were the top Joes in the theater. They knew everything, were most skilled and had all the answers.

I don't want to pick on anyone, but some guys seemed fairly lost. Like some of those guys from a place that rhymes with "Port Bum". Which was a big dissapointment.

They're still there, winning friends and influencing people on the airport road:
