Greywolf Brigade cases colors


After a rigorous train-up spanning more than nine months and comprising a division-level warfighter exercise, various gunneries and a combined arms live-fire exercise, the 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Greywolf," 1st Cavalry Division, cased its colors in a ceremony on Cooper Field at Fort Hood Feb. 16.

"They are ready to deploy, fight and win," said Col. Robert Whittle, 1st Cav. Div. deputy commander and reviewing officer for the ceremony. "They will depart soon to the Middle East for a nine-month rotation. There, our cav. troopers will train with our allies and serve as CENTCOM’s armored reserve."

As the Greywolf Soldiers, along with friends and Families of the brigade looked on, Brigade Commander Col. John Woodward and Command Sgt. Maj. Alfred Ronneburg rolled up the unit colors and tucked them away in an operational combat pattern sheath, where they will remain until the unit arrives in Kuwait.

Upon arrival, the unfurling of the colors will signify that the brigade is operational in its new location and has taken on the mission with which it was tasked.
