Spent all 5 1/2 years with 3rd Brigade 1st Infantry Division "Big Red One"

During both deployments I was basically an 11B, humping across Afghanistan with 80lbs of gear. I don't really know what a real MP does...

There are a lot of knowledgeable people in both of those battalions. Let me know who you end up with, what company and battalion, I might know some of the guys if they haven't PCS'd. Oh and enjoy Knox, it sucks so bad. In winter there will be a 3inch layer of ice from Dec to Feb and in summer its so humid you can cut the air with a knife.

Orcutt, my boys from the Korengal/KOP are saying you were not there for 3 months. I also have some contacts from your unit that confirmed this...
RCP out of Abad is not "humping 80 lbs across the 'stan"...
