CSM George ArendsSoldiers and Families, January has been a busy month with our mission; we also are starting the planning process for our re-deployment which energizes and brings smiles to all involved. Something that is being worked on is all of the awards that will be presented to the Soldiers of the Battalion. I can’t express how proud I am of all that you have accomplished while reading through each award. You truly are America’s finest and have made a direct impact against the war on terror. I accredit a lot of the unit’s dedication to duty and diligent work ethics to our mid-western upbringing and moral beliefs…so for all the mom and dad’s reading this letter, job well done!!

CSM George ArendsAs I sit to write this letter the first thing I want to convey to you all is how proud I am of all the Soldiers serving here, as I know you are also. We have settled in a routine and everyone is performing their missions magnificently. Morale is still great even with the heat and high humidity; don’t believe it when people tell you it’s a dry heat, that’s not the case around this area in August. The Soldiers come off guard duty soaked from sweat. Read the rest of this entry »
