5/2 Stryker Brigade
Occurred last friday. This is all we get to see. I imagine a real Battle Honor, the one you can march with, when the S.A.S. march, which must be around their Parade Ground because they are unlikely to march as a unit in Public anywhere else, has been presented also. I just hope one day these blokes get some form of proper public recognition. Why the fuck we dont get a public holiday to celebrate the end of this war when we withdraw, is beyond me.
