It`s the end of an era at Shreveport`s Fort Humbug as the 1/156th Armored Battalion comes to an end. In a ceremony Sunday morning, the 1/156th colors were retired and a new flag was unfurled completing the transition to the new 2/108th Cavalry Squadron. Though the name has changed the unit`s mission will remain the same, serving and protecting as an infantry brigade. The only difference is they will no longer use tanks during their missions. "We formerly had the had the M1-A1 tanks. We`re a lighter unit now. So now we`re humvee based. So our proud heritage of armor here in Shreveport goes away, but yeah we stay Cavalry," said Lieutenant Colonel Scott Adams. The first 156-th armored battalion did two tours of duty in Iraq, losing six members in combat. And even though the battalion has come to an end, members of the new squadron say they will proudly carry on their legacy of bravery and courage. The 1/156th was a member of the 256th infantry brigade which encompasses the entire State of Louisiana. Changes within that brigade brought about the need for the new cavalry squadron.
