Lt. Gen. Helmick meets with Maj. Gen Huggins, reminiscent of iconic WWII Airborne photo
Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick, XVIII Airborne Corps commanding general and United States Forces-Iraq deputy commanding general of operations, speaks with Maj. Gen. Jim Huggins, 82nd Airborne Division and Regional Command (South) commanding general, during a visit to RC(S) headquarters on Kandahar Airfield Nov. 4. Their meeting during Operation Enduring Freedom echoes back to the iconic photo from the Battle of the Bulge in Bastogne, Belgium, taken of Lt. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, then commanding general of the XVIII Airborne Corps, and Maj. Gen. James M. Gavin, then commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division. (Photo Illustration/U.S. Army Sgt. Amanda M. Hils)
