The US military announced that 2,100 troops from the Mountain Division (10 light infantry) would be deployed in Iraq this fall.

“Soldiers from the Combat Team – 3rd Infantry Brigade, based in Fort Polk and Louisiana will replace the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, in a regular rotation of troops to support the process of the inherent solution.

“The aim of deploying alternative or additional troops is to enhance integration to build a better war-fighting team,” said the commander-in-chief of the US Army’s 36th Infantry Division.

“Over the past few months, we have worked hard and completed several training courses to include joint readiness in preparation for this mission and I am confident of success,” said Major Walter Byat, commander of the Mountain Division.
