"(Hellcat Company) Is with the same battalion I was with when I was deployed to in the Republic of Korea, so it's like I never left the unit," said Schenaker.
The Soldiers from Hellcat Company recently returned from a nine-month deployment to the Republic of Korea increasing readiness and strengthening the alliance with our ROK Army allies.
