1st Armored Division Iraqi Freedom Patch
In the build-up in the months prior the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, two battalions of the 1st Armored Division's, 3d Brigade were deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In April 2003, the remainder of the 1st Armored Division deployed to Iraq and assumed responsibility for Baghdad and the surrounding areas, relieving the 3d Infantry Division. The 3d Brigade deployed to the Iraqi Theatre once again in January of 2005 for Operation Iraqi Freedom three from Fort Riley, Kansas, this after only eight months back in the States. There, they are attached to the 3d Infantry Division and are the major unit involved with Task Force Baghdad.
The 2nd Brigade Combat Team deployed to Kuwait November 2005 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom IV, spending six months as a theater reserve. Following the Samarra mosque bombing TF 2-6IN deployed to Iraq in late February 2006. In May 2006 the remaining two Task Forces (TF 1-6IN and TF 1-35AR) deployed to Ar Ramadi, Iraqi to help bring the volatile capital of the Anbar Province under control.
The division's 1st Brigade deployed again to Iraq in January 2006 after months of intensive training in Grafenwohr and Hohenfels, Germany. Many of the soldiers who fought with units like 2-37 Armor "Iron Dukes" and 1-37 "Bandits" returned to Iraq for a second time.
Our 1st Armored Division Operation Iraqi Freedom Patch is a 4 inch, full color, 100% embroidered military patch. This patch would be a great gift idea and a wonderful addition to your patch collection.
