Welcome to the Currahee Yearbook 2005. The 1st Battalion 506th Infantry is a unit with a distinguished military history. Through conflicts past and present, our Regiment's brave deeds and steadfast camaraderie have rightly earned it the label Band of Brothers. We continued this tradition during our recent deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, helping pave the road to democracy for the Iraqi people and battling terrorists on their own soil. For this operation, our battalion has been privileged to serve as the core of a task force consisting of units from across the services: Armor, Engineers, Air Defense Artillery, Marines, Air Force, and others. They too are all now members of our Brotherhood.
This website is a mosaic of information about Task Force 506th and our deployment in support of OIF. It includes a collection of our history and traditions dating back to the earliest days of our Regiment as well as scores of photos from across the Task Force. There are also portraits of each individual Currahee, as well as biographical information on key Currahee leaders. Email addresses for are available for many Currahees to facilitate communication in the years to come. Finally, there is a simple memorial to those courageous heroes, our Fallen Brothers.

I hope you enjoy this Currahee Yearbook and take a few moments in the coming months and years to look back on this eventful period of our lives. We all share a common history now, a collection of memories both happy and tragic that will always be with us. Friendships forged in the fires of combat are the most powerful kind. We fought for the man beside us as much as a high ideal of freedom and this has made us Brothers, just as our Currahee fathers before us. We stood alone on Iraq's desert frontiers -- an island of order in a sea of chaos -- against the forces of terror and tyranny in order to forge a new life of peace and liberty for a people that have been long oppressed. Through intense adversity we have struggled skillfully and honorably, and so we now are worthy to inherit the title of Band of Brothers.CPT Keith J. Kelly
