Memorial Day.

On the 20th of May, the Brigade cased its colors. This means they place the flags of each battalion and of the brigade in a casing, and then they are taken to where they will be flown next (Afghanistan).  This picture is of all the battalions in formation (you can only see two of them, and they are only partial representations of the battalions).

The Sergeant Major and the Commander of the brigade casing the brigade colors.

This is 2-502, just after their colors are cased.

This last picture is of our battalion's colors being cased by the commander and sergeant major.
It was an emotional moment, knowing these flags will fly in combat, and won't fly again on Fort Campbell until the soldiers are home. Take care, men, and women. We're thankful for what you are doing, and what those who've come before you have done.
