‘All over southern Afghanistan, you will find Dragoons with their foot on the throat of the enemy.’

Col. Todd Wood, commander of the 1st Stryker Brigade, 25th ID:

“The enemy left southern Afghanistan because we kicked his ass out,” he told the town hall meeting. “All over southern Afghanistan, you will find Dragoons with their foot on the throat of the enemy.”

The brigade is going to Afghanistan a bit early to be in place when the fighting picks up in the spring. That means the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment can come home a little early.
