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.

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...
