1st Cavalry Division soldiers continue to be key players throughout provinces of Afghanistan, as they train, advise, and assist Afghan forces.
In a statement to Channel 6, 1st Cavalry Division General John Thomson said it is imperative the United States succeed in Afghanistan.
Failure to do so would result in terror attacks on U.S. soil and "also unleash waves of refugee migration across the globe," Thomson added.
United States military is also involved with counter terrorism ops in the Afghan region.
Thomson said their extraordinary efforts have made a positive difference in Afghanistan, which directly contributes to the freedom Americans enjoy at home.
