According to Command Sgt. Maj. Ryan Meurer, the 8th STB’s senior enlisted leader, the ribbon was a way of showing thanks and respect to the approximately 50 deployed Soldiers of the 8th HRSC, and will remain displayed until the unit’s return to Fort Shafter, Hawaii next year. As the 4th deployment for the unit since its creation in 2006, the 8th HRSC coordinates, integrates and synchronizes personnel accountability and strength reporting, casualty reporting, Army postal operations and reception staging and onward movement tracking and analysis throughout the theater as prescribed by Army service component command guidelines.
