The trail party for the 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division returned Wednesday afternoon to Fort Stewart, where family, friends and fellow soldiers waited eagerly in the hot sun to welcome them home.
Upon reporting to 3rd ID Chief of Staff-Rear Col. Scott Jackson, 1st ABCT Commander Col. James Crider and Commander Sgt. Maj. Herbert Kirkover, the soldiers uncased the brigade’s colors, symbolizing the Raider Brigade’s return. At that time, Lt. Col. Jason Garkey and Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Henle, 1-3 Brigade Special Troops Battalion, also uncased their battalion’s colors.
