What a difference time makes. The battalion, which is assigned to the 101st Sustainment Brigade, is now preparing to head home from its fourth deployment in eight years in support of the war on terrorism. They also take with them the belief that their mission to train and mentor Afghan security will have a lasting impact.

Maj. Gen. James Mallory, deputy commander, North Atlantic Treaty Organization Training Mission-Afghanistan, attaches the Meritorious Unit Commendation streamer onto the 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, guidon. The battalion, originally scheduled for de-activation, was re-activated for deployment to Afghanistan as trainers to the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police.
