well, it had to happen sooner or later

the roanoke times is reporting that units from the 1/116th infantry will be activated and added to the the 3rd battalian in its activation. This is the storied stonewall Brigade, the spearhead of the d-day assault, some parts of which haven't been activated since WWII. Back in the day, I served in one of those units, though it looks like my old unit isn't being activated. They are all good soldiers, I'm sure they'll do fine.
