It is with great pleasure and honor that I announce that my unit – the 139 MPAD – received the military’s Meritorious Unit Citation award for our service in Iraq. This is the highest award given to a unit of our size. Congrats all 139 padsters. We worked our butts off and deserve the recognition!

Buffbabe turned mommy

One of my soldiers always referred to me as dad for my strict sergeant ways. You may have read her material under the pen name Buffbabe,

Well, she is soon to be a mother, a dream she’s always had. I remember being on guard duty with the girl and while I was reliving old football memories, she would discuss how she can’t wait to be a mother. So if you get a chance, stop by her site and wish her well. She’s a good kid. I guess, she’s really not a kid.
