As you know many wings/units have historical names which you may be familiar with - The Wolfpack, The Swamp Foxes, The Gunfighters, The Blacksnakes, The Capital Guardians, etc. The names often originate from a local historical event, a military history theme or geographic tie. It could also tie to our motto " First Class or Not at All". We have read through all of the available IDANG historical documents and haven't found a name widely used for the 124th. Col. McCandless wants to bring the idea of a common identity forward for us all to consider. We have a combat focused team of warriors here at Gowen - is there a name out there that fits ?
Please take a moment and share your idea at our BRIEF SURVEY HERE
