After a year-long deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 233rd Transportation Company recently returned to its home in Fort Knox, Kentucky, but not for long - the group will soon be moving out of state to Fort Stewart, Georgia, according to The Associated Press.
The relocation is aimed at better supporting the unit's training needs as well as improving transportation access for three heavy brigade combat teams situated at Fort Stewart.
Although the homecoming at Fort Knox will be brief, it is also quite heralded. The company soldiers earned 22 Bronze Star Medals, the fourth-highest honor for bravery and heroism, during their deployment, according to the news source. The relocation is expected to be completed by October 16, 2012.
Even though they are likely used to it, moving to a new base of operations can be tough. With personal belongings, weapons, uniforms and vehicles to consider, there are always details that can slip through the cracks. One way to avoid problems is to hire professional military moving services. These relocation movers can help military groups stay on top of their move and allow them to focus on their duties serving the country.
