3rd Infantry Division Returns From Deployment

MG Leopoldo Quintas and the remaining soldiers from the headquarters contingent arrived at Cottrell Field at Fort Stewart today (April 18, 2018), following their nine-month deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Freedom Sentinel, the U.S.-led counter-terrorism mission there.  And that principal mission was to “advise, assist, and enable missions” on the part of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.   After a few days with family and a required reintegration process, the Division Command Staff and soldiers will look forward to uncasing the Division’s colors at Marne Garden on May 18, 2018, officially signifying the Division’s return to home station at Fort Stewart.    A sincere welcome home to our 3rd ID soldiers.  (Reference:  3rd ID Public Affairs Office, April 18, 2018).
