PLN 20

In the article "Brigade Prepares for ‘Advise, Assist’ Mission" by Donna Miles what matters is 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade prepares for its fourth deployment to Iraq. Army Col. Roger Cloutier, the brigade commander, calls it fitting that his soldiers will serve as one of four new “advise-and-assist” brigades made specifically to support Iraqi security forces. I think that this is a good thing because if our AA teams help the Iraqi security forces it will help stop fighting and help prevent terrorism. During the NTC rotation, the Iraqis - portrayed by the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, NTC's permanent opposing force - took the lead in planning and carrying out every operation. During two out-of-sector operations, one at battalion level and one at brigade level, the Iraqi security forces led the planning, with concept development support from the U.S. stability transition teams.
