The brigade was augmented by over 200 Individual Ready Reserve Army soldiers from 36 different states. In the first eight months in Iraq, the CAB's units flew 51,000 combat flight hours while executing almost 7,300 combat missions. 36 CAB has carried more than 230,000 passengers, moved more than 15 million pounds of cargo, conducted almost 60 large combat air assaults, provided outstanding Medical evacuation (medevac) support to save many soldiers' lives, and supported ground troops with AH-64 Apaches.
