On 23 July, Bryan's battalion had their St Barbara's Ball. Many of the young soldiers and their wives had never attended a military ball so it was important for us to have a fun night for them - especially with the deployment coming up.
Me with my fabulous volunteers!
Bryan & some of his soldiers
Bryan and 3 of his NCOs received the Honorable Order of Saint Barbara Award.
"The Honorable Order of Saint Barbara recognizes those individuals who have demonstrated the highest standards of integrity and moral character; displayed an outstanding degree of professional competence; served the United States Army or Marine Corps Field Artillery with selflessness; and contributed to the promotion of the Field Artillery in ways that stand out in the eyes of the recipient's seniors, subordinates and peers, alike."
Myself and another of our FRG volunteers received the Molly Pitcher Award.
"The Artillery Order of Molly Pitcher recognizes individuals who have voluntarily contributed in a significant way to the improvement of the Field Artillery Community."
Thank goodness he has his NCOs to take care of him!
Some of the lovely ArchAngel wives!
They never stop talking about work...
Showing off our Stella & Dot at the ball!
We finally got a picture together at the end of the night.
Me & Teri, my friend and fellow FRG leader.
At least 2 of us remembered our Guns of Glory flip flops!
