Soldiers from Troop F, 6th Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas, unspool a wench, Feb. 27, to recover a Stryker near the international border in Nogales, Ariz., as part of “Operation Nimbus II,” a military support mission to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency. Active-duty soldiers from Fort Hood, Texas, and Fort Bliss, Texas, provided air and ground reconnaissance and surveillance support to the Border Patrol during the mission in terrain so rough and remote that even military vehicles had difficulty.
