Fort Campbell, KY – The 4th Brigade Combat Team on Thursday held a color casing ceremony marking the transition of the unit to a wartime footing as they prepare to once again deploy to Afghanistan. In November 2012, the Currahees received the news that they would be deploying to Regional Command East (RC-East) this spring, where they will continue to provide training and mentoring to Afghan security forces.
The Brigade and Regimental colors were cased during the ceremony on Thursday and will remain furled until the unit’s command completes its transition to Afghanistan where the colors will be unfurled to fly in combat.
