3rd Infantry Division gets tapped...again. Remember these guys? They were the ones, along with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, fought the bulk of the shooting war from Kuwait all the way into Baghdad.
The 3rd Infantry Division of Fort Stewart, which spearheaded the 2003 assault on Baghdad, has learned it will return to Iraq within a year...
The Army issued a warning order late last week, saying the division would leave no sooner than Thanksgiving and no later than February 2005, said Maj. Darryl Wright, a division spokesman.
A warning order gives the division a heads-up on future operations and lets the commander know exactly when his troops must be ready to ship out, Wright said.
