"There is not a record that wasn't broken by this unit...in terms of missions performed. In terms of hours. They did incredible work," Colonel Don Galli said.

Three thousand soldiers of the 3rd CAB deployed to Afghanistan in October 2009 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom..

Nearly 500 more soldiers will return later in the week.
