Senior leadership from the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division including members of the brigade's civil affairs office, the 1st BCT Embedded Provincial Reconstruction Team along with a representative from the 1st Cav. Div. civil affairs office attend a video teleconference on Camp Taji, Iraq Sept. 21 communicating with government officials from the city of Austin through a live video feed. The Ironhorse Brigade is working in a partnership--originally established by the 1st Cav. Div. and 4th Infantry Div. three years ago-- with the Austin city government to receive feedback and exchange ideas, based on a working local governance model (the city of Austin), that may be applied to helping local Iraqi governments with reconstruction efforts.
