Pando Commando Halloween

By Staff Sgt. Paige BehringerOctober 28, 2019

The "Pando Commando" reflects candlelight in the rain from a festive jack-o'-lantern display, October 27, 2019, at Fort Drum, New York. The skiing panda, or "Pando Commando," has recently gained popularity across the "Commando" brigade, or 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (LI). The informal insignia originates from the Pando Valley near Camp Hale, Colorado, where the 10th Light Division (Alpine) was activated in 1943. When the unit was re-designated as the 10th Mountain Division (LI) in 1944, the Pando Commando remained as an unofficial logo and a piece of the division's history.
