Christmas Luncheon

    Members of the Greenville National Guard unit hosted a Christmas luncheon on Sunday, December 4th. The meal was prepared for the families of those men from Greenville and Luverne who have been deployed. There were approximately 65 people who attended. Retired Colonel, Gene Autrey, was the guest speaker and SFC. Ted Clarke of the Greenville unit spoke to everyone concerning his recent deployment to Afghanistan.
    I would like to give a thanks to several local merchants who donated items that made this event successful: Bates House of Turkey, Just Julie’s, AmeriGas, Dowdle Gas, South Alabama Gas, Fred’s, Super Foods, Shoney’s, Cracker Barrel, Greenville Hardware, McKinley Tire, Jones Firestone, Duke’s Shell, MJ Carwash, Ruby Tuesday, and National Gas of Andalusia.

Mobile Register

Bravo Battery has been making the newspaper as of late.  Mike Marshall editor of The Mobile Register is on his third trip to Kuwait and Iraq since 2003, writing about Alabama soldiers stationed there.  We should fell fortunate that he has been reporting on our troops stationed at Camp Taji.  I added the link to the Mobile Register on here to make checking a bit easier.   Also I have added the past three articles he has written about the men.  Just click on the link and you will be able to read his stories.

Here is a picture of one of the rooms the guys are staying in. This is Bobby Beasley's and Terry Kluckman's room.
SGT. Bobby Beasley, this is the man that has the important job of getting the mail for the guys.
Looks like SPC Jeffery Johnson is sitting down for a quick lunch break.
The Angels along with Zach Sewell's son like to get together to keep each other company. Peggy and Calvin Rogers would go out every Friday night since they have been married for dinner. However, since Calvin's deployment, Sue Beasley and Jennifer Sewell have been taking her out to dinner. This is a perfect example of Family Support.
Here is a very interesting group of wives and daughter. They call themselves the "Bravo Angels". The Christmas tree had angels on it with the names of all the deployed soldiers from Greenville and Luverne.
Retired SFC. Lomax Tomlin came out to show his support for the guys.
