Reconciliation efforts mark Cav’s Baghdad birthday
By Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil Jr. MND-B Commanding General
CAMP LIBERTY, Iraq – Sept. 13 marks the 1st Cavalry Division’s 86th birthday. Last year, we were cutting cake at Fort Hood even as several of our units had already departed on this deployment. We came with a purpose – to improve the security situation here in the Iraqi capital and set the stage for the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people to take charge of their future. We’ve had some tough days, battling al Qaeda operatives and criminal militia. But here in the MultiNational Division – Baghdad, we keep pounding away at our enemy, pushing him daily. And we’ve seen positive results from our persistent pressure. Operation Fardh Al Qanoon, the Baghdad Security Plan, kicked off in February bringing ‘surge’ troops to support the security operation in and around the Iraqi capital. We put more troops on the streets and stationed them in joint security stations and Coalition outposts, creating a full-time presence in Baghdad communities with our partners in the Iraqi Security Forces. Now we’re seeing a grass roots surge among the Iraqi people. The people of Baghdad have grown tired of the violence brought on by terrorist groups and criminal militiamen. They have started banding together in neighborhoods on both sides of the Euphrates River to terrorist attacks less lethal over the past months and allowed life to grow. I believe the Coalition has gained a measure of trust with the people – through our presence and our professionalism – and the service members within Multi-National Division – Baghdad should all take great pride in their successes thus far. Baghdad is still a dangerous place, but it is safer now than it has ever been since we took over the mantle of securing the city from our brothers and sisters in the 4th Infantry Division in November last year. The 1st Cavalry Division was in Baghdad when democracy was born in January of 2005 with the first free national elections held here. Our tradition of excellence runs deep, from the sun-baked soil of Baghdad to the hills of Bosnia-Herzegovina to the jungles of Viet Nam and the sweltering heat in the Philippines. Our division dates back to Sept. 13, 1921 – born under the hot Texas sun at Fort Bliss – and we toil today under the glare of the Iraqi sun and the world’s spotlight. We have done a magnificent job of it, throughout the years and still today. To our troopers, our family members and the friends of the First Team, I thank you all for your selfless service and sacrifice. And I wish you all a very Happy Birthday!

reconcile themselves with the dulyelected Iraqi government to put an end to the senseless violence and lawlessness. They are volunteering to work with the government, instead of against it, for the betterment of all. In Adhamiyah and Taji these patriots are formed in Critical Infrastructure Security units. In Ameriyah, one of the first areas to embrace the volunteer effort here in the Iraqi capital, they call themselves the Farsan Al Rafidayn, or FAR, which in Arabic means “knights between the rivers.” Across the Iraqi capital, reconciliation efforts led by our Soldiers and leaders at the grass roots level are starting to bear fruit. Attacks are down in the city. The temporary barriers we’ve emplaced around markets and other densely populated areas have made

1st Cav Teens enjoy trip to SeaWorld

SAN ANTONIO – About 100 teens from the 1st Cavalry Division’s Teen Family Readiness Group enjoyed one of the last days before school starts at SeaWorld Adventure Park here Aug. 23. The trip was a part of the division’s expanding FRG, which aims to include more than just spouses, with programs for teens, tweens, and younger kids. For the teens, it was an opportunity to experience all that the park had to offer – the rides, the shows and the chance to be with others their own age. Holding FRG events for our younger Family members allows them a chance to interact with someone close to their age and circumstance,” said Carol Livengood, the division’s family readiness support assistant. “This is one way that our rear command can help relieve stress and give the kids a method to interact with others who understand what they are going through.” This is the fourth Teen FRG event, Livengood said. The others included a baseball game, a rodeo and a skating party. For some of the teens, this trip was their first FRG event, but many others had been to at least one of the other events before. Thirteen-year-old Taylor Strickland had only been to one other teen event, the baseball game in Round Rock, but said he was excited about coming on this trip. For him, the highlight of the trip was riding The Great White, a roller coaster on which the rider’s feet hang free and the track is overhead, because it went upside down several times. “If I could choose to ride one ride all day, it’d be The Great White,” Strickland said. But not everyone was there for the rides, 12-year-old Hunter O’Rourke said although he enjoyed the rides, his favorite part of the day was the Viva! show because there was a lot of different things going on at the same time. The Viva! show featured high divers and synchronized swimmers swimming along side dolphins and whales. The weather didn’t appear to be cooperating, as rain sprinkled down as the buses pulled into the SeaWorld parking lot. The skies cleared up quickly, but not before scaring a lot of the crowds away and leaving the park mostly free of lines. “It was awesome, we got to go straight to the rides,” Strickland said. Beside the opportunities at the park, several military family life consultants came along to be available for the teens to talk to about any issues or stress they may be having in their lives, Livengood said.

Cav ‘tweens’ cheer on Round Rock Express
Story and Photos by Sgt. Robert J. Strain 1st Cav. Div. Public Affairs
ROUND ROCK, Texas - Rain clouds overhead let out a light drizzle, threatening to delay the game or worse cancel it. Fortunately, luck was on the side of the 1st Cavalry Division’s Tween Family Readiness Group, and the rains held off for the duration of their trip to see the visiting New Orleans Zephyrs take on the Round Rock Express in a minor league baseball game at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas, Sept. 2. The event was the division’s 11th FRG event focused on the whole family, rather than just spouses, but only the second for ‘Tweens’, youngster who aren’t little kids anymore, but aren’t quite teenagers yet, said Col. Larry Phelps, the commander of the 1st Cavalry Division’s rear detachment. The division’s first Tween event was held at the Horse Cavalry Detachment in July and included a mounted cavalry demonstration and a tour of the detachment’s stable area. Although the Express lost the game 10-2, many of the 40 Tweens had fun just watching the game and hoping a foul ball would come into their part of the stands. One of the game’s big highlights came at the end of the game, when all the kids were given the opportunity to run a lap around the bases as a part of the team’s Kid’s Night. But the Tweens weren’t the only ones having fun - the chaperones that escort and watch over the kids also enjoy these events. Pvt. Melissa Payne, with the division’s 15th Personnel Support Battalion, said she volunteers to chaperone because she enjoys doing things with the kids. “I love kids - and I’m a big kid myself,” said Payne, a 21year-old New London, Conn., native. Payne, who has been a chaperone for three FRG events, said she would have volunteered to chaperone at more events, but she didn’t know about them until before the last Tween event at the horse stables. She said it was her unit’s first sergeant, Master Sgt. Trina Herzfeld, who told her about working with the kids as a volunteer. “It’s fun for me,” Payne said about volunteering. Although she enjoys working with the kids and teens at every event, Payne’s favorite event was last month’s Teen FRG trip to SeaWorld Adventure Park in San Antonio.

Family FirST First troopers arrive home
September 2007 Story by Sgt. Robert J. Strain 1st Cav. Div. Public Affairs
KILLEEN, TEXAS – The first three troopers from the 1st Cavalry Division’s 15th Sustainment Brigade arrived to the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport Sept. 17 to waiting family members and fellow troopers. The Soldiers are the first of the brigade’s advance party and are the first of the division’s troopers to return to Central Texas, said Maj. Carl Womack, the rear detachment commander of the 15th SB. One of the Soldiers on the flight was Honolulu native Sgt. Pomaikai Garza, a radio operator with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 15th SB. Garza said he had been looking forward to getting home and seeing his wife Tanya, instead of just talking to her on the phone. But that would have to wait a few more minutes. Tanya, a Los Angeles native, was running a few minutes late because she had prepared some lunch for him and had struggled with some balloons she had brought for him, which were the very first thing Garza noticed about his wife of seven years. For her, the very first thing she noticed was that he had lost weight since he was home last. In order to pass the time until Garza returned home, Tanya said she became more active in her work as a real estate agent, volunteering more of her time and helping out with fund raisers. She also said that during the deployment, which was his second since he arrived at Fort Hood in 1999, she had become more independent, learning to do things on her own. Tanya explained that a couple of weeks ago, when she had found out her husband was coming home, she 

had to prepare for his arrival by putting all of his stuff back where it was before he left. She had also redone one of the floors in their house, and had to ensure that all the furniture was back in place. Eventually, when it came time for his flight to arrive, she explained that she was so nervous that she needed her sister, who lives in Killeen, to come to the airport with her. All of the Soldiers who arrived on the flight received a three-day pass before beginning their reintegration training, said Capt. Stephanie Harris, the rear detachment commander of the Brigade Troops Battalion. Harris explained that although only three troopers came home on this flight, the flow has begun, and more troopers won’t be too far behind. “I think they’re happy to see people coming home,” Harris said.

Baghdad BrieF


After six years apart, two brothers come together in Iraq
Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Jon Cupp 1st BCT Public Affairs
CAMP TAJI, Iraq – Two deployed brothers -- Staff Sgt. Eric Breeden, a weapons squad leader from Company A, 1st Battalion, 38th Infantry Regiment, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division and Sgt. Charlie Breeden, a medic for the 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st “Ironhorse” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, have two very busy military careers that have taken them all over the world. But thanks to various deployments and overseas assignments, the siblings have been unable to see each other face to face for more than six years. That is---until now. Ironically enough, they said, it would take a deployment to Iraq and Charlie’s promotion ceremony from corporal to sergeant here Sept. 1 to bring them back together. “It’s kind of hard that it has to be during a time of war, but this is really great and it’s good just to have his ugly mug down here,” said Charlie, a Portland, Ore. native, with a laugh. “You know, it’s not happening under the best of circumstances, but we’re happy to be here together,” Eric, who claims Salem, Ore. as home, chimed in. “It wasn’t too hard being apart though, over the years we stayed in touch with phone calls and emails.” It was a reunion that Charlie said he wasn’t sure would actually take place. Charlie knew his brother was in Iraq and knew what Eric’s unit was, but was unable to find him because Eric’s working email address had recently changed. But Charlie was driven to find his brother. “Like the big brother that he is, he kept pushing me to get promoted, so it was really important for him to be here, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for us to see each other,” said Charlie. “I had to find him.” Charlie and his wife, Colleen, sent emails to the 1st BCT, 1st Cav. Div. which contacted the 4th SBCT, 2nd ID Public Affairs Office on Taji to help arrange the reunion. The 4th SBCT PAO located Eric, communicating with his chain of command and scheduled a flight for him. Eric who is based out of Camp Warhorse, which is not far from Camp Taji, had just gotten off a long patrol when he received a special message just a few days prior to his brother’s promotion ceremony. “I was asleep and there was a knock on my door,” Eric said. “My first sergeant told me you’re going down to Taji to promote your brother. Although I was really tired, it felt really good to get the news.” “I knew he was supposed to be getting promoted sometime, but I didn’t know exactly when,” he added.

Eric Breeden (left), a weapons squad leader for Company A, 1st Battalion, 38th Infantry Regiment, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, and Portland native Cpl. Charlie Breeden, a medic for the 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, share a laugh during Charlie’s promotion ceremony to sergeant at Camp Taji, Iraq Sept. 1.

Landing on Camp Taji the night prior to Charlie’s promotion, Eric met Charlie at the camp’s passenger terminal. The two hugged and then, Charlie had a surprise for his brother. “My roommate was at one of our outposts, so I let Eric stay in my trailer,” said Charlie. “We haven’t shared a room in nearly 20 years.” “I thought I was going to be staying in a tent,” said Eric. “So this was much better than where I thought I would be staying.” Charlie said they were both in for a long night. “We may not get much sleep,” said Charlie laughing and reminiscing about all the times as children when they kept each other up at night hitting each other with tennis balls or throwing toys at each other. “You better not try anything funny,” said Eric feigning a warning. During Charlie’s promotion ceremony, Eric emplaced Charlie’s new rank on his uniform. “It’s about time,” said Eric, who is four years older than Charlie, with a grin. “He was always the one asking me promotion board questions online, coaching me,” said the 34-year-old Charlie, explaining that his brother was always like his protector and guardian in a way. “He would yell at me if I was short on promotion points, so I had to earn more to eventually get promoted.” Both of the brothers who are married and have children took the time together as an opportunity to catch up on news about their families. “He has his bunch and I have mine,” said Charlie, who has two sons. “He hasn’t seen my boys much, so it’s a

Couple gets high-tech help exchanging wedding vows
Story and photos by Janna Lewis Fort Hood Sentinel Staff
Sometimes a marriage just doesn’t need a big, fancy wedding. But it may need a little high-tech help to make it happen. Spc. Craig Bowes, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, and his fiancée, Rachel Holmes, used all the modern amenities of the 21st Century in a video teleconference wedding at the division’s headquarters here Sept. 7. “For a variety of reasons, couples decide not to wait to get married,” said Chap. (Maj.) Daniel Kinjorski of the 1st Cav. Div. “Even in the middle of a war, life goes on. A VTC wedding is a viable option to accommodate Soldiers and their Families.” VTC weddings require witnesses and chaplains on both ends of the camera, but they’re just as legal as if the bride and groom were in the same room together, Kinjorski said. The VTC allows them to see each other via a television monitor and camera and hear each other through a microphone and speaker with only a five-second audio delay. Bowes and Holmes were able to see and speak to each other through the entire ceremony and after. The first words Bowes said to his fiancée via the connection were, “You look so beautiful, Rachel.” “All I cared about was becoming Mrs. Craig Bowes,” the bride said after her wedding. “I don’t need the big

ceremony or the big white dress. But I do need Craig.” The couple met 18 months ago in Austin. They started talking about getting married a year ago. “We were driving in the car and we just started talking about it,” Holmes said. “So there really wasn’t a formal proposal. We just decided together to get married. I can’t imagine my life without him now.” The couple had planned to marry earlier, but a death in Bowes’ Family forced them to postpone wedding plans until later. “We decided six weeks ago to just do it,” Holmes said. “We wanted to get married and decided to worry about a ceremony later. He’s been gone since October of last year. I miss him so much.” Holmes wore a simple white dress and carried a single pink carnation. She was attended by friend, Cassandra Ramsey. “Rachel didn’t want a whole lot of fuss,” Ramsey said. “This day means a lot to her and Craig. It’s cool that they could still do this even with him in Iraq.”

chance for us to reconnect and give updates on the families.” “It’s a good time to see how we’re doing and how things are going at home,” Eric injected, adding that he has three sons of his own. Although they said they were ecstatic about seeing each other, their families back in the states were also excited about the reunion. “My wife is really stoked about this,” said Charlie. “If our families couldn’t be here for this, they’re at least happy for us that we could be here and share in this moment together,” Eric said. The brothers said their family has the same wish that many families have for their loved ones who are deployed to Iraq. “Our family supports us while we’re here and they support the troops in Iraq, but they would much rather have us and all the other Soldiers come back home,” said Eric. The families back home are already busy making plans for when the brothers do get back. “I talked to my wife and grandma and they’ll be hooking me up with a big family reunion when I get home,” said Charlie, who returns to Fort Hood sometime in early 2008. “Don’t worry, I’ll rope you into one, too,” he said to Eric, who returns in mid-summer 2008. “I know how much you like big crowds.” Although, their reunion on Taji was short the two brothers said they wouldn’t have traded the time they spent together for anything in the world. “It was awesome,” said Eric. “I’m glad that 4-2 let me come down here, it makes me feel good to know that they would go to all the trouble to do this for me. It was also a great honor to come down here and see how the guys in Charlie’s unit and the 1st Cavalry Division are working.” “It was a pleasure to have him down here, at least for a day, and we took the little time we had here and made the best out of it,” Charlie added. Next year, the brothers and their families will have many more opportunities to see each other as Charlie will be taking an assignment to Fort Lewis, Wash. where Eric is currently stationed.

cutting of the cake. The Soldier, and his father, teamed with Fil to do the honors. “That was pretty exciting,” said 19-year-old Spc. Thomas Rogers, a native of Jackson, Mo., and an automated logistics specialist with the 35th Engineer Brigade (Corps), a National Guard unit based out of Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. “We just got here a couple of weeks ago, and I can see the tradition already,” said Rogers’ father, Lt. Col. Andrew Rogers, also with the 35th Engineer Brigade. The tradition of the First Team ties it to the days of the old west. The division was formed in 1921. That year, a legacy of tradition, pride and heritage was born with its formal activation at Fort Bliss, Texas Sept. 13. However, 1st Cavalry Division units have served the nation since 1855. The division was originally set up to patrol the Mexican border. The cavalry, which worked mostly on horseback, was called on to put an end to illegal smuggling along the Mexican border.

CAMP LIBERTY, Iraq – The 1st Cavalry Division celebrated its 86th birthday with a cake cutting ceremony and a few words from Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil, Jr., commanding general of the First Team and Multi-National Division-Baghdad at the Pegasus Dining Facility here Sept. 13. “To all the troopers, the friends and family members of the First Team, I thank you all for your selfless service and sacrifice, and I wish you all a very happy birthday!” Fil told a stand-roomonly crowd. With those words, the cake cutting was underway. During the birthday celebration, troopers with 1st Cavalry Division enjoyed a cake resembling the large patch they wear so proudly. The 1st Cavalry Division Band was on hand serenading those in attendance with birthday music. Fil chose the youngest Soldier in attendance to help with the ceremonial

The First Team celebrated its 86th birthday with a large cake resembling the division’s patch and by donning their Stetsons.

Since those early days, the 1st Cavalry Division has seen action in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, a deployment to Bosnia-Herzegovina and is currently serving in its second deployment Operation Iraq Freedom. During the rich history of the division, 37 First Team Soldiers have received the Medal of Honor for their heroic actions in combat. Maj. Gen. Robert L. Howze served as the first commander of the First Team from 1921-1925. In 2003, 1st Cavalry Division aviators were part of the main push into Baghdad, and the entire division deployed in 2004, helping to set the stage for national elections in January 2005. The 1st Cavalry Division’s tenth deployment in its 86 year history is coming to an end, and First Team Soldiers will soon be returning home.
