3rd Combat Aviation Brigade to Deploy to Afghanistan

Savannah – On 29 September 2017 the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade at Hunter AAF, part of the 3rd Infantry Division, cased in colors in preparation for deployment to Afghanistan. Approximately half of the Aviation Brigade will deploy to Afghanistan and stand up as Task Force Falcon, augmented by Army National Guard units from Illinois, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. The 3rd CAB’s contributions will be CH-47Fs, HH-60Ms, and UH-60s from 2-3 AVN, AH-64Ds from 3-17 CAV, and UH-60Ms from 4-3 AVN along with Headquarters and command elements. Task Force Falcon will provide close air support, logistics, and medevac support for Afghan, US, and partner forces in Afghanistan with AH-64s, CH-47s, HH-60s, and UH-60s.

As this is a combat deployment, I will not report or post on any flights such as REACH flights or DOD contract flights that I believe are carrying equipment or personnel for Task Force Falcon.
