3rd ID members reunite on 10th anniversary of Iraq deployment

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Ten years after being deployed to Iraq, a group of soldiers from the 3rd ID decided to get together Saturday evening for a reunion.

The 3rd Infantry Division's 2nd Brigade - 315th gathered at the Savannah Hotel and Conference Center with their families.

The more than 150 people in attendance were happy to be reunited. The 315th was part of the spearhead during the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

"You know, it's important because it allows guys to come together to tell those old war stories, remember one another, catch up on where they've been, what they're doing, families," said Captain Bevin Stansbury of the Army National Guard.

"But, it's also important to continue the history and the lineage of the units that we belong to."

No word on when they plan to hold their next reunion, organizers began planning this one last year.
