He was in the 6/8 Cav. If I remember correctly, part of the 3rd BCT. He spent much of his time at a little out post near Zamariah (sic). When they got to go to the rear, it was to FOB Falcon. Re redeployed in Dec 2008. Most of the exciting times for his squadron were the first 3-4 months. After they killed off all the bad guys in his area, things quieted down. His platoon found the big "torture house" near Zamariah that made the nightly news.
