Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) - Afghanistan
Battery First Sergeant. My Battery (A) was mobilized as an MP Security Company. The MTOE for a Paladin Battery was 99 and a Security Company was 152. So to get our numbers up to that level they rolled about half of HHB into my battery. We deployed with about 165 soldiers. Our main duties were to provide CS (MP) to the 2/508 PIR and mentor the ANP.
