Back To The Bay - The 339th Deployed

Updated:

 

The 339th has been deployed several times in more than a decade. They were first deployed back in 2002. They were sent to Cuba to guard Taliban detainees.
     
We went to Cuba to talk to soldiers about their mission there. Six months later they were sent to Fort Campbell, Kentucky and it was November 2002 when they came back home to the Quad Cities, just in time to spend Thanksgiving with their families.

In January 2004, the 339th were called up again, this time heading into Iraq where they spent most of the year there. Again in 2008, our local team was returned to Iraq.

Following the attacks of 9-11 Gary Metivier went down with our local 339th to Guantanamo Bay and he talked about the experience with Sharon DeRycke.
