AFR Welcomes the 196th Light Infantry Brigade!

Julie Wysong, AFR’s top-notch Account Executive, blocked 600 rooms for the 196th Light Infantry Brigade Association for 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. Thank you Warren Neill! We look forward to an awesome reunion in the nation’s capital. The 196th LIB was posted in the III Corps Tactical Zone, initiated Operation Attleboro in Tay Ninh Province, and moved to I Corps Tactical Zone as part of Task Force OREGON. The brigade joined the Americal Division in February, 1969.  In 1971 the brigade was relocated to Da Nang for major port security duties. The new 196th works with Reserve Component units in Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, American Samoa, and Japan.
