FORT DRUM, N.Y. (WWNY) - When an Army brigade deploys to a new location, a ceremony is held called casing of the colors.

It happened on Fort Drum Tuesday as 3,500 soldiers with the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 10th Mountain Division are deploying to Afghanistan.

Nicknamed “The Warriors,” the 1st Brigade will replace the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division as part of a regular rotation of forces to support Operation Freedom Sentinel.
