Soldiers from Fort Riley will deploy to Iraq for Islamic State mission

About 500 soldiers from Fort Riley, Kan., will deploy to the Middle East in late October to support the mission to “degrade and destroy” Islamic State militants, the Department of Defense announced Thursday.

About 200 of the soldiers from Fort Riley’s 1st Infantry Division, the “Big Red One,” will deploy directly to Baghdad and Irbil in Iraq. The rest will be stationed in the region and deployed to Iraq over time.

The Defense Department said the soldiers are preparing for a one-year mission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So much for "no boots on the ground."

Don;t you get sick and tired of being lied to all the time?
