806th Route Clearance Company

Discussion in 'The Tailgate' started by Preacher Wilson, Apr 20, 2010.

  1. Last friday i went down to Conway,Ar. to see some Army buddies off on their 2nd deployment. Thirty members of my old reserve unit volunteered to go back, now dubbed the 806th Route Clearance Company, they consist of appx. 190 soldiers from 25 different states. Twice myself, i have been the one saying goodbye to friends and family, telling them not to worry. now, i find myself on the "worrying side" and already realize it wont be easy. They'll be heading to Afghanistan performing Route clearance missions, their job consists of clearing the roads of bombs and boobytraps placed their by insurgents. So, next time you are saying youre prayers, please remember the 806th route clearance comany.
