Department of Defense drops ‘Operation Faithful Patriot’ title from military border mission | NBC News

The U.S. military mission at the Mexican border will no longer be called “Operation Faithful Patriot,” according to officials.

The formerly named “Operation Faithful Patriot” is a deployment of nearly 5,200 troops, who joined 2,000 troops already stationed at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Jamie Davis said in a statement on Wednesday that while the Defense Department was dropping the name, the operation was still named and still ongoing.

The troops at the border are a mix of active duty, reserve and National Guard forces and are supporting thousands of border patrol agents already deployed to the area.
