IAmA former US Army logistics company commander that was responsible in part for supporting the last months of the withdrawal from Iraq. AMA
I was deployed to Camp Taji and Victory Base Complex(Baghdad area) from August to December of 2012. At the beginning of our tour we were supposed to spend a full year in Iraq, but due to politics out of our control we were told in November that we would be going home very early. What ensued was a cluster-f*#k of hastened withdrawal and the logistical nightmare of closing down operations.
I had the honor of leading a 140 man strong logistics company as we did our part in closing down that theater. Figured I would do an IAmA for the 5 people on reddit that may be interested. AMA!
Heres the best I can do for proof? I can try harder but... heres a pic of me at the Hands of Victory (Swords of Qadisiyah) which we took, like many many others folks do, in the Iraq. - took this down just cause the internet is scary. Ill send to mods though :/
