Fort Bliss, TX (KTSM) — From Maj. Gen. Dana Pittard's commentary, "Thoughts while working out in the gym:"
The 1st Armored Division Combat Aviation Brigade is currently conducting aviation operations across two theaters overseas in addition to their continuing operations here at Fort Bliss.
Task Force Dragon 1/501st, Task Force Iron Knights 2/501st, and Task Force Apocalypse 3/501st are currently providing Coalition Forces in Afghanistan a potent combination of reconnaissance, lethal firepower and expert lift capabilities.
These outstanding aviators and ground support personnel are demonstrating the professionalism and excellence that Combatant Commanders have come to expect from Team Bliss’ Soldiers.
Meanwhile, Task Force Pistoleros, 4/501st, is currently in Kuwait supporting operation Spartan Shield.
Keep up the good work! Iron Eagles!
