Al National Guard's impressive mission numbers in Afghanistan

Soldiers of the 1st of the 167th Infantry Battalion have completed more than 10,000 missions throughout Afghanistan. The 167th has traveled nearly 120,000 miles within Afghanistan.

The battalion works as part of the NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan; an international coalition tasked with assisting the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in developing AFghan-led security forces.

The 167th Infantry traces its roots to before the Civil War when it was part of the Fourth Alabama Infantry Regiment. It has played a role in nearly every major war and campaign since. This is the first time the entire battalion has deployed in the global War on Terror.
