Mar 14, 2006 — Just last month, the 10th Mountain Division deployed to Afghanistan for the third time since 2001. Meanwhile, hundreds of soldiers in the division's 1st Brigade now in Iraq are veterans of the last deployment to the mountains of Afghanistan. Not everything the soldiers learned or experienced in the mountains there applies to the deserts of Iraq though. Freelance journalist Bill Putnam is embedded with the 10th Mt. Division in Iraq. He talked with soldiers with the brigade's 1st of the 87th Infantry about the differences -- and how they're applying the lessons they learned in the mountains to the deserts.
