2/505th Provides Security for Iraqi Elections, Democracy Advances

Posted on February 3, 2009. Filed under: News of the Day, Walker Military Adventures |

Tuesday, February 3, 2009– The 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division, stationed in and around Baghdad participated in securing the city for the important elections on Saturday, January 31. Members of the famous 2/505th Parachute Infantry Regiment assisted in the operation and the elections went forward without any violence. Mission accomplished!

Your brave soldiers have once again contributed to the safety of the Iraqi people as they make rapid advances towards a working democratic government.

Although the turnout was lighter than anticipated, and some confusion existed, and there were some charges of dirty tricks amongst the various political parties (sound like our elections!) this was an important step for Iraq and leads us closer to the time when we can take our Army out of Iraq.

Send a big Thank You to the paratroopers of the 2/505th!
