Pine City Holds a Farewell for the ‘Bulldogs’

Sunday, May 29th, 2011 at 9:55 am

Pine City sent off members of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 34th Red Bull Infantry Division on Saturday, for a yearlong deployment supporting the drawdown of U.S. troops from Iraq. They will be based in Kuwait. They are part of the second-largest deployment of the Minnesota National Guard since World War 2. While they are there, they will be providing base management and security ground convoys of troops, equipment and supplies throughout Iraq.

The ceremony was held at the fairgrounds in Pine City and Senator Amy Klobuchar was also there to wish them well.
