Coming Home Festivities

Update on coming home festivities.....The Southern Nevada soldiers will arrive at McCarran at 0645 on the morning of the 29th and the soldiers will be bused to the Southeast parking lot of the Mandalay Bay Convention parking lot. Families and friends should be in the parking lot no later than 7:00 AM in order to park and be in position to receive the troops. There will be a quick formation and the troops will be released to families and friends.

The de-mobilization ceremony will then be on the 31st at the Mandalay Bay Events Center followed by a party later that evening for couples on Fremont Street. The dress for the party is ACU for soldiers. Please request these times from your soldier as they will know them.

The Squadron is currently in the process of re-deploying to the states. This process will take a few weeks. Due to the uncertainty of arrival dates the ceremony at the Mandalay Bay has been cancelled. Right now the Squadron is planning a welcome home reception at the Clark County Armory for Southern Nevada soldiers upon their arrival which is still expected at the end of this month. The date and time will be put out here and through the family readiness group as soon as it is available.

On behalf of TF Wildhorse and the members of 1-221 CAV we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Today and tomorrow we are being treated by the tunes of the Bragg Tones, the official 82nd Airborne band. We will also share in the Christmas meal tomorrow. Connection speed is very slow but I will update again as soon as I can.
