Regimental Picnic
The Regimental Picnic was held on post at Iron Horse Park, a
large complex of pavilions, BBQ areas, various sports facilities,
and multiple playgrounds.

Soldiers who had served with the 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry, 2nd BCT, 2ID in Iraq, 2004-2005
were reflagged as the 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry, 2nd BCT, 2ID on September 29, 2005, when the
1-506th colors were cased at Fort Carson and transferred to Fort Campbell, KY, where they were un-
cased for the October 13, 2005 activation of the 1st and 2nd 506th Infantry, 506th RCT, 101st Division.

Many of these 2-12 Infantry soldiers attended the Regimental Picnic and the Currahee Memorial Dinner.
