I Corps’ Brig. Gen. Heidi Brown has been in the news a lot lately, mostly because she’s tasked with overseeing the logistics of withdrawing troops and equipment from Iraq. The Associated Press caught up with Brown, a Texas native, for a story that moved across the wire last night.
From the story:
First out, Brown said, will be the early withdrawal of an Army combat brigade of about 5,000. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said a brigade would leave by the end of the year, months ahead of schedule, if violence in Iraq did not escalate beyond current levels.
