Todays miltoon was written by Timothy Sisson and then rewritten by me. Tim is a vet and, like me, a Blue Star dad. He’s also quickly becoming a partner in crime. Moses Lambert, also a seasoned fan, assures me that all this logistical stuff in the toon is soooooo true! It really makes a difference around here when you guys step up. Now … another seasoned NCO has stepped up here at DBS central. And we all know “The Sergeant IS the Army”. So here’s a little something from SFC (ret) Joe Dvorak,Master Gunner, FA BN 3-6 FA 10th MTN DIV, Iraq, September 03, 2005, “First Rounds Downrange” to put on your desktop :Great idea for what to do with all the grey space in the desktop background, eh? Joe took this picture himself.
This was taken as we were taking over for a 155 BN. It was a registration/calibration shoot as part of the Area Defense of Camp Liberty and the Baghdad Airport. Just to let them know there was a new guy in town and we didn’t play. Let me know if you need anything else.I think this little piece of history is just amazing. Turns out his old unit, 3-6 FA, is headed back to A-stan. So even though Joe owns copyright on this pic I think he’d agree to us all spreading some applause to the 3-6 fellas. I bet he’d even provide contact info for the unit if any of you military supporters wanted to send ’em some thanks, or SA package, or such stuff. Hooah!
