After 16 months in Iraq, the 172nd Stryker Brigade is returning to home bases Camp Wainwright and Camp Richardson, Alaska. The flights began arriving after Thanksgiving and will continue through December 5 to bring the 3,720 soldiers home.
Five Silver Stars were awarded to Arctic Wolves soldiers and the unit received the Valorous Unit Award from General George C. Casey. Twenty-six members were lost.
This unit of soldiers went above and beyond for our country. We wish them well and hope that they have a very Merry Christmas at home with their families.
God Bless You and Thank you, all!!!!!
