Fort Lewis’ 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division will case its colors tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Watkins field ahead of its second deployment to Iraq.

The brigade of more than 4,000 soldiers is headed to Baghdad later this summer. It last deployed for 15 months in April 2007 as part of the troops surge, serving in Baghdad in Diyala province.

Here’s the neat part of the ceremony. From the press release:

More than 200 veterans from 2nd Infantry Division will also attend the ceremony, and will help case the colors of the battalions they served in during World War II and the Korean War.
