Black Jack cases colors, heading to Korea


Black Jack troopers from 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, cased their colors during a ceremony at Cooper Field, May 23, marking the brigade's preparedness to begin a nine-month rotation to the Republic of Korea in the coming weeks.

This deployment is part of the regular rotation of forces and Black Jack will replace the 1st Armored Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, from Fort Riley, Kansas.

This will mark the Black Jack Brigade's second rotation to Korea.

"Today we cased the brigade's colors, signifying the end of our training and preparation here in the U.S.," Col. Steven Adams, commander, 2nd BCT, 1st Cav. Div., said. "Once again, this team of Black Jack troopers … will answer the nation's call."

Adams said the rotation to ROK is part of a strategic mission focused on the brigade's ability to fight against a near-peer competitor on any battlefield.
