New Visitors in Gjilan

We've got new visitors in town.  Almost every day we see patrols of US soldiers walking up and down the streets of Gjilan.  They are always friendly and almost always surprised to hear that there are other Americans in town. 

CAMP BONDSTEEL, Kosovo — For the first time in more than six decades, the colors of the 36th Infantry Division are flying again in Europe.

The Texas National Guard unit, which fought in Italy during World War II, took over Kosovo Force’s Multi-National Brigade (East) in a transfer of authority ceremony Wednesday. The 36th assumes responsibility of the U.S. sector of the province from the 40th Infantry Division from California and will be carrying out peacekeeping duties for the next year
