FORWARD OPERATING BASE SPEICHER, Iraq -- Soldiers of the 701st Main Support Battalion, surpassed one million miles driven without a combat loss in support of the 1st Infantry Division in Iraq.

The million mile mark was reached when a 701st MSB combat logistics patrol returned to FOB Speicher from FOB Summerall on Dec. 28. The CLP, led by Bravo Company's 1st Lt. Tomas Campbell, was greeted by a formation of 701st troops and leaders.

A ceremony, attended by Brig. Gen. Stephen Mundt, the 1st Infantry Division assistant division commander for support, and Col. Paul Wentz, the 1st ID division support commander, was held in the battalion's CLP rehearsal facility. Posted by Hello
