The two forces have worked together for several months now and will be going their separate ways soon. They took the opportunity to not only celebrate the birthday, but to also show their mutual respect and appreciation.

During the event, Soldiers from both forces exchanged stories and reflected on the events of the last six-months that helped cement a bond of friendship between them, said U.S. Army 1st Lt. R.J. Peek, 3-187 spokesman, from Clarksville, TN.

That friendship will continue even after the two forces separate. The Iron Rakkasans of 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment will soon be relocating to East Ghazni, and the Macedonian Rangers will move to Paktya, said Peek.
