I'm Bringing Sexy Back

You heard me.

The tall one is me, and the one who looks like a Panamanian General is my First Sergeant, 1SG Neumann. He is my right hand man, and keeps me out of trouble.


Me (the tall one again. Sometimes I think I work in Munchkinland). From left to right, not counting me, CPT Jeff Jaramillo (will be taking command in two weeks), MAJ Bill Dowling (the Battalion Executive Officer), CSM Evaristo Torres (the BN CSM) and 1LT Ginette Bocanegra (my XO.)
In case you're wondering, the little short coats that Dowling and Torres are wearing are called the Mess Dress uniform. They cost A TON and I'm not getting one until I'm a major.


(This was at the Association of the United States Army Bradley Leadership Awards Banquet. Or the Army Prom.)

Stew-

He's wearing two medals. The red one is the Order of Saint Barbara, the patron saint of the Artillery. The blue one is the Segeant Audie Murphy Club medallion.

He's been around for a while...

Jen- as I understand it, you get EVERYTHING when I am dead. And when I am not dead.

I spill a lot. All of my clothes are mess uniforms. I've never seen a first sergeant or a sergeant major look so happy. They all looked older and meaner in my day.

Nigel- you're discounting the alcohol. And also, my 1SG is happy because he's my 1SG :)

Your Dad.
