  • Fort Bragg Soldiers come home to comfort

    Aug 7, 2009

    It seems like a statement of the obvious. The manner in which Soldiers are received and integrated back into their home station following a deployment is a critical first step in the reset process.

Based on experience from previous deployments and redeployments, the 3rd Bn., 4th ADAR battalion command team of Lt. Col. Rob Lyons and Command Sgt. Major Harold Lincoln, had established a vision.
