01/27/09 Freedom Watch Afghanistan

It has been a while since I put one of these on here, and for those that like the Freedom Watch Afghanistan series produced by DOD, I am sorry. I have just been so swamped with work and many other things going on that I simply have not had the time to even watch these myself.

This one is pretty good. It covers the first class to  graduate what is essentially Afghanistan’s West Point, and the re-deployment of Task Force Spartan. TF Spartan is 3rd BCT of the 10th Mountain Division. I fought with and alongside these guys a lot and they are who I earned my 10th MTN Combat Patch with as they were deployed to Afghanistan for 18 months from 2006-2007. They were the Brigade that got extended while they had planes literally in the air returning home (which got turned around and sent back).

  1. Yep I remember the extension like it was yesterday. I remember some of my fellow soldiers in 2-87 had family members with welcome home signs already made, it was very depressing and I believe we were the last ones to receive deployment extension pay.
