1st AD Receives New Orders

The First Armored Division will end operations in Iraq and head home for Germany by July 15th. It was rumored 1st AD would be replaced by 2nd Brigade 2nd Infantry Division. It appears the "Fit to Fight" soldiers will not be available in the Iraqi theater until fall, however.

Department of Defense officials now say a brigade combat team of the 10th Mountain Division will be deployed to Iraq to replace the "Old Ironsides" soldiers.
