As part of Operation
Iraqi Freedom III and the
42nd Infantry Division’s Task Force Liberty, the
250th Signal Battalion is providing the backbone of
the voice and data communication network for the
Division Area of Operation.
The soldiers of the 250th Signal Battalion, who
usually drill one weekend per month in Westfield,
Somerset and Cherry Hill, are now at places many of
us cannot even pronounce. These citizen Soldiers
have not only met the challenges of mobilization and
deployment, but have demonstrated their professionalism,
technical expertise, ingenuity and
innovative approach time and time again.
As temperatures now average well above 100
degrees daily, the Soldiers of the 250th Signal Battalion
have not let their guard down. These signalers
continue to operate and maintain their Mobile
Subscriber Equipment, while leadership at every
level ensures that every Soldier gets adequate rest,
drinks plenty of fluids, eats, exercises and takes time
to themselves to relax and unwind.
Time is passing very quickly and before we know
it, we will be back home.
