torch party
 n.— «The “torch party,” an advance crew that departs early to set up camp, was the lead element going to the Middle East, said Dusty Shenofsky, spokeswoman for the Louisiana National Guard.…“They were from a mixture of units. They leave the main body …and start establishing operations. They’re assigned to the torch party by their function, not their unit.”» —“256th Infantry’s first unit off to Iraq” by Angela Simoneaux in Lafayette Baton Rouge Advocate (Louisiana) Sept. 29, 2004.
