The 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, back from 15 months in Iraq, will have its big redeployment and awards ceremony at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Watkins Field.

Before the ceremony, Spc. Michael Gallagher will be presented with the new Jeep Liberty he was given as part of Chrysler’s “Honoring Those Who Serve” campaign.

Gallagher had the SUV customized to pay tribute to five of his comrades from A Company of the 2nd Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, who were killed during the deployment, and company representatives will present him with the finished vehicle Tuesday.

Note: If you don’t have military ID and a Department of Defense sticker on your vehicle, you can still get on Fort Lewis. Got the visitor center at the main gate, present your driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance and you can get a visitor pass. ID required for all vehicle occupants over age 16.
