“Red Horse”

If you see any military folks around town this week, remember that they might be headed Over There, and keep them in your thoughts. Members of the 819th RED HORSE unit and their “sister” Air National Guard Unit, the 219th, will be deploying to what is known as “The Sandbox” next week. Their scheduled return will likely fall sometime between Mother’s Day and Independence Day…quite a while to be gone. Give ’em a pat on the back if you see them. Oh – and if you’re wondering what the term “RED HORSE” means…

  1. Hey guys and gals, im 19 and have lived in great falls for my whole life. in the years that i have lived here i have heard of numerous deployments of our military men and women stationed around the GF area. The support for the military in GF seems almost hushed. My point is, is that it is time For GF to have the oppurtunity to celebrate the Men and Women who are so vital not only to the economy but to the security of our freedom. The reason i am writing here is to try and gather information about the homecoming of Troops stationed in GF. I think that with a strong Community voice we can persuade city officials to hold parades to each homecoming for deployed troops. its time we showed that we really do appreciate our troos in and around great falls, to show respect. What the men and women of the armed forces do for this country must be celebrated and honored. Its time to show them what their fighting for, or at least give them a thank you. Please, if this idea intrests anyone who reads this, contact me at [email protected]. Time to give back.
