Support the Renegades
Celebration of Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment,
2nd Brigade Combat Team "STRIKE", 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)
"A Rendezvous with Destiny"
2013 Memorial Day Weekend
Through the America Supporting Americans organization, the City of Florence adopted Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team "STRIKE", 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) - also known as the Renegades - approximately 10 years ago, when Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom started. During this time, Florence has had a continuous relationship supporting B Company through their deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, and we plan to continue this partnership into the future.
The City of Florence will commemorate our special relationship with the Renegades by welcoming approximately 100 active duty soldiers from the company over the 2013 Memorial Day weekend. We will use this occasion to:
- Welcome, honor, thank, and celebrate our current active duty soldiers from the 101st Airborne.
- Remember those soldiers from the company who were killed-in-action during their service during Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.
- Let all soldiers feel the love and support this community has for them, and let them know we always will.
