A ceremony Friday marked the deployment of some 250 soldiers with 3rd Infantry Division headquarters. It was the sum of a number of parts, some unscripted, others planned. Retired Maj. Luis Carreras, a pilot in Vietnam, attended. 3rd ID commander Maj. Gen. Leopoldo Quintas got to talk to newly signed up soldiers in front of the statue of Rocky at Marne Gardens before posing for a group photo with them. 1/9 FA soldiers fired howitzers during the ceremony. The 3rd Infantry Division band played. And senior leaders, family members and guests presided over the ceremony. The photos are by Jeff Whitten.
