The last U.S. military vehicle that crossed the border when U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq late last year has gone on display at Fort Hood.

The mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle will be unveiled at a dedication ceremony Tuesday morning.

The Army's 1st Cavalry Division soldiers who drove the vehicle out of Iraq will be there to talk about their experiences during the withdrawal in December.

Army officials say the vehicle was featured on national and international news broadcasts as it crossed the border into Kuwait in December. The vehicle was part of a convoy that had driven all night to leave Iraq, marking the final moment of the nearly nine-year war.

It will be displayed at the 1st Cavalry Division Museum at the Texas Army post.
