Sixteen Soldiers with the 266th Movement Control Team, 541st Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 1st Sustainment Brigade, 1st Infantry Division were welcomed back from a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan Sept. 16 at the Fort Riley Redeployment Facility.
The 266th MCT provided movement control operations at the Fixed Wing Airfield, Rotary Wing Airfield and Ground Yard at Forward Operating Base Shank in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
Without the hard work of the 266th MCT Soldiers, warriors on the front lines would never receive much needed food, water, fuel and ammunition, said Capt. Charlie Jones, commander, 266th MCT.
Falling under the 49th Joint Movement Control Battalion in theater, the 266th MCT Soldiers were presented their 4th Sustainment Brigade combat patches in January.
