173rd ABCT's 6th annual 'Running of the Herd'

A trophy stands ready to be handed to the team that completes the most laps in the fastest time during the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team's 6th annual "Running of the Herd," at Forward Operating Base Shank, Nov. 8, 2012. Since the first event in 2007, the Sky Soldiers continue to run every year on November 8, a date that refers to the brigade’s actions during Operation Hump in Vietnam that left 48 Americans dead after being ambushed by Viet Cong fighters. Since the Vietnam War and until the present, the 173D ABCT has lost more than 1,800 Sky Soldiers.
