My Grandma Bonnie Jean Dowling passed away this week. She had been suffering for a long time, but held on to hear of the safe arrival of her second Great-Grandchild, Violet Marie. We are so sad to lose her, but know that she's with Jesus! Love you, Grandma, we will miss you.
Today Steven took command of Bravo Company, 3-69 AR BN, 1st BCT at Ft. Stewart. We were welcomed by LTC Davenport and the rest of B Co at a nice ceremony this afternoon. He gave a great speech and is really looking forward to leading Battle Company for the next year or so. We had a reception afterwards and served pulled pork sandwiches, fruit, drinks and cake to all 150 of his soldiers! It was a great day! In addition to his command, I'll be taking over as FRG leader during his time with B co....wish me luck! They are scheduled to deploy in November for 9 months, so it should be an interesting year for both of us!
