133rd Inf Bn Welcome Home from Iraq

133rd Inf Bn Welcome Home from Iraq




Marion can you post this picture ? Roque Proud day !!!



Enclosed is a photo of the "Perfect Shot" of the 1-133rd Infantry Bn Final Formation on July 25, 2007, after their Mobilization and Deployment to Iraq. This is the photo that will down in history, just like the photo of the National Guard 168th Inf Regt, after WWI, in front of the Iowa State Capital.


There is talk of submitting this photo and story to the Army Times. The perfect Welcome Home after 22 months of duty and the longest serving Army National Guard Infantry Battalion during the Iraq War. Hoough!


A special Tim Mills for his efforts to get this photo from the roof of the grandstand in 90 degree heat and an old Colonel badgering him. Thanks Tim! "Pride and Joy" were the words that came to me when the troops formed up on the field.


We have the most wonderful National Guard in the Nation!

Thank you Marion for posting this. Yes it of the 34th in Iraq. I am going to find out what Bn. of the 133rd it was. 22 months of

service longest service of a Natl. Guard outfit in Iraq. Reminds me of the 34th. in WW 11

First Divn. in combat in Europe and most days in combat. Old "blood and guts" knew of the

34th. All these are facts. I am extremely proud that I am the present President of the

34th. Inf. Divn. Assn. Roque Riojas
