I knew, from my online attempts to keep up with my former unit, that the Regiment is deploying back to Iraq sometime soon. Interesting news, if somewhat distant from my daily concerns. Friday night I was driving home from work on Beltway 8 and what do I see? A flatbed 18-wheeler loaded up with containers. I pull in behind the truck and facing out was a big red and white square with “E TRP 2/3 ACR” stenciled right in the middle. About a mile down the road I passed a truck with Fox Troop’s containers on the back. From my dim memories, that means in about 4 to 6 weeks 2d Squadron will be on the ground. Blood and steel, gents.
