HW Day 4: Team Day – 2nd Platoon Charlie Company 2nd Battalion 508 PIR (Parachute Infantry Regiment) 4th Brigade Combat Team 82nd Airborne

C co.

Got some for Brian Flannery’s Platoon today!

From September 2009 to September 2010, 2nd Platoon Charlie Company 2-508 PIR, 4th BCT, 82nd Airborne Division deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom under Task Force Fury to the Kandahar Province of Afghanistan. During their 12 month tour, 2C (Two Charlie) operated in the Panjwai,Zhari, and the Arghandab River Valley districts of Kandahar, all hot beds of Taliban activity. During their tour, 2C was able to defeat and disrupt Taliban activity and weaken the insurgency in their areas of operation, but not without a price. Of the 7 Paratroopers killed in action from Charlie Company, 6 came from 2nd Platoon, and with almost a 30% casualty rate amongst the remaining members of 2C. Now there may not be a Medal of Honor recipient amongst this group, but the men of 2C saw enough direct action to make even the hardest of individuals weak in the knees. It is only fitting that this group be honored, both their fallen heroes and those still amongst us. AIRBORNE, ALL THE WAY, FURY FROM THE SKY!
