Fort Lewis, Wash. – The I Corps Analysis and Control Element unit is expected to return from Iraq Monday, December 7. About 110 Soldiers from the I Corps Analysis and Control Element (CACE) are expected to be reunited with their families at a ceremony currently scheduled for approximately 5 a.m. Monday morning at Soldiers Field House on Fort Lewis.
About 25 CACE Soldiers redeployed earlier this week; Monday’s arrival will complete this unit’s return home from Iraq.
The I Corps CACE deployed in early December 2008 to serve as the Multi-National Corps-Iraq analysis and control element. It was the initial element of the I Corps headquarters to deploy, as the rest of I Corps followed in March.
The CACE was responsible for providing intelligence and analytical support to ongoing full-spectrum operations, which created safe and secure conditions and allowed the Iraqi government to grow.
