In winter 2006 the Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division was deployed again to Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom as the only aviation brigade in the theater, stationed at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. Named "Task Force Falcon," the brigade's mission was to conduct aviation operations to destroy insurgents and anti-coalition militia in an effort to help build the Afghan National Security Force's capability and allow the Afghan government to increase its capabilities. In addition, the Task Force provided logistical and aviation support for International Security Assistance Force forces throughout the country, conducted tactical maneuvers and performed security and attack operations when needed.[1]
