Deployed Louisiana Troops from 2nd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment, held a rib cook off Sunday May 30, in an early observance of Memorial Day on a patio behind the Joint Visitor?s Bureau Hotel at Camp Victory, Iraq. The rib cook off was held to allow the infantrymen a break from daily stress, as they cooked, listened to music and spent time with friends and comrades outside of a work environment. The 2-156th mobilized in January and deployed as part of the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom to conduct force protection and convoy security missions. The Abbeville, La., headquartered battalion is scheduled to return to Louisiana around the end of the year.
