Loved ones

Soldiers, family and friends of Fort Carson attended a ceremony to dedicate the Fort Carson Multi-disciplinary Training Platform to 1st Sgt. Bobby Mendez, Jan. 7, 2013, in honor of his sacrifice during his deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Mendez was killed April 27, 2006, in Baghdad, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Humvee during a combat operation. The facility, formerly known simply as the foundry, was renamed to 1st Sgt. Bobby Mendez Foundry Training Platform, in his memory. Foundry is the U.S. Army’s intelligence training readiness program developed in 2006 for the tactical military intelligence force, and is designed to sustain critical intelligence capabilities and perishable skills, while providing tactical training, certifications, regional focus and functional expertise for the tactical military intelligence force.
