Back from the sandbox: active and reserve components work together to bring 3rd ID home.
The 1186th Transportation Terminal Brigade. a reserve unit from Jacksonville. Fla.. managed tile off-loading of the USNS Red Cloud at the Port of Savannah under the supervision of Charleston's 841st Transportation Battalion.
Approximately 1,500 vehicles, helicopters and cargo containers were taken off the ship during the three-day process. Once the off-load was completed, wheeled vehicles were convoyed to Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield, Ga.
All of the division's aircraft returned on the Red Cloud--more than 60 Chinook, Apache and Blackhawk helicopters. Once the rotor blades were reassembled the aircraft was flown back to Hunter Army Airfield, said Chief Warrant Officer Mike Fry, 3rd ID's aviation brigade maintenance officer.
