BAMBERG, Germany – The 370th Sapper Company, 18th Engineer Brigade, cased its colors Jan. 15 at Warner Barracks here in preparation for their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

The 370th Sapper Company had previously been deployed to Logar Province, Afghanistan from Nov. 18, 2010 until Nov. 15, 2011.

“They know their training, and know it well, I can’t say how proud I am of them,” said Lt. Col. Thomas Austin, commander of the 54th Engineer Battalion. “You are going forward into danger so others don’t have to.” “As you must leave your families behind, it is now time to turn to your military families as you prepare for combat operations in Afghanistan.”

Cpt. Craig Miller has commanded the 370th Sapper Company since June of last year and expressed how all of the back to back training events have prepared his company for success in Afghanistan.

“I look forward to standing with you all in nine months when we unveil that guidon,” said Miller.

The 370th Sapper Company will deploy to Afghanistan to continue their route clearance mission while in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

In preparation for this deployment the company had three field training exercises including a rotation at Joint Multinational Readiness Center, Hohenfels, Germany.
