2nd Bn, 3rd SFG(A) Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

On 14 October, the 2nd Bn, 3rd SFG(A) celebrated its 25th anniversary. Seen here is LTC David Painter and CSM Christopher Raube placing a wreath to honor Bush Hog Soldiers, past and present.

I stood in formation during the activation ceremony on the parade ground of Fort Bragg’s Old Division Area back in 1991. As a severely understrength Caribbean-oriented battalion, we weren’t known as the Bush Hog’s yet and it would be several years before we completely ready. The unit cut its teeth on JCETs and Operation Restore Democracy in Haiti, served as our capstone. In the ensuing years, the Bush Hogs have really shined, earning their nickname in Afghanistan. I’m proud to have served on a SOT-A in 2/3.

Happy 25th Anniversary to my fellow 2/3 Veterans. Here’s to 25 more!
