10th Mountain Div. PAO
Editor’s note: This is the second of a two part series about Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, supporting the Iraqi National Guard. The first part featured Soldiers who advise the ING. The second part will feature the medics who support both the ING and CAG.
CAMP VICTORY, Baghdad - A day at Forward Operations Base Hawk, nicknamed the “Alamo,” is what movie goers expect to see from a combat film. Character-developing dialogue is cut short as Iraqi National Guardsmen and American Soldiers roll on and off the base ready for the next big mission. They even have a lovable pet, an Iraqi dog named “Clyde,” for comic relief.
The only constant at the Alamo is that medics from 210th Forward Support Battalion are ready to treat soldiers from the 303rd Iraqi National Guard Battalion and their American supporters in the Commando Advisor Group from the 2nd Brigade Combat team (Commandos), 10th Mountain Division. The medics would tell you the only constant at the Alamo is there are no constants.
