Being the fire brigade is an honor but it is demanding. Deploying downrange for several months on contingency deployments is tough on soldiers and their families. The 82nd Airborne is a terrific unit, but is not suited to fight heavy armor for a long time. I believe we need to have a heavy Corps back in Europe to better deter Putin. The notion we can do that mission by rotating a brigade out of Fort Hood now and then is wishful thinking.
Thanks for the share MAJ Dale E. Wilson, Ph.D.. Hard to believe that this was only a 90 day deployment. Should have been a minimum of 6 months for land based units and to also have a plan to rotate out and replace the carrier strike group. But then that might have already been the plan but keeping opens info close to the chest in this chess game with Putin.
