III Armored Corps returns home

The Central Texas community had an opportunity to welcome the Soldiers of the III Armored Corps home during an uncasing of the colors ceremony Monday in front of the III Armored Corps and Fort Hood Headquarters.

Lt. Gen Sean MacFarland, III Corps commanding general and Command Sgt. Maj. Alonzo Smith, the III Corps command sergeant major, uncased the unit’s colors, which symbolized the corps' return to Fort Hood.

"The operational tempo does not slow down for America's most lethal corps and the uncasing of our colors here is just an outward representation that our mission at home has resumed," MacFarland said. "Tomorrow we'll face new challenges and begin to prepare for new missions, many of which are not yet known to us."

III Corps returned from a year-long mission in the Middle East in support of Operation Inherent Resolve where it played a role in combatting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
