Panther Brigade Cases Colors

Story by MAJ Thomas Cieslak on 07/01/2019

Signifying the brigade’s deployment from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to Afghanistan, leaders of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division cased the brigade’s colors Sunday, June 30th at Fort Bragg’s Pope Army Airfield.

Today, you follow in the footsteps of 3rd Brigade paratroopers who deployed to combat before you, said Col. Art Sellers, the 3rd Brigade Commander. Be eager to write a new chapter in the storied history and heritage of the Panther Brigade he continued.

The color’s casing occurred in preparation for the brigade’s deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. Paratroopers of the brigade will conduct numerous operations in partnership with Afghan and international partners in the country on a scheduled deployment.
