    Winners of the team and individual challenges of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team's 6th annual "Running of the Herd," pose for a photo with the commander, Col. Andrew Rohling, 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.
