After facing the grueling elements that Afghanistan had to offer, the soldiers of the Division Forward Headquarters Battery for 1st Cavalry Division were finally able to rest under a warm Texas evening during their welcome home ceremony at Cooper Field on Friday.

The Battery supported NATO and local forces for Command-South in Kandahar as part of a seven month deployment in Afghanistan. Specifically, to train and advise Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police. The Battery also vigilantly patrolled areas in southern Kandahar, Afghanistan to gauge security within the region and ensure they understood the concerns of Afghan civilians living in the region.
