And that is a wrap on Easy Company, 3-47 Infantry Regiment's journey through One Station Unit Training. 6 months ago each of these Infantrymen started their training as civilians. 10 weeks after that, they became Soldiers. Yesterday they became Infantrymen, and today these Infantrymen travel all over the world in the defense of Freedom and the American way of life. America, we thank you for lending us your sons for 22 weeks. We are proud of the role we played, and we can't wait to see what these young men do with what they have learned.

"For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!"

Family and Friends of Eagle Company, Our Soldiers culminated their week long field training with the Bayonet. The Bayonet is a continuous 48 hour operation where Soldiers conducted a 12 mile foot march, conducted offensive operations at the Platoon level and showcased all of their skills accumulated over the past 18 weeks. They also had to complete the last 100 yards, in which they had to complete several stations over the course of 4 miles testing their grit. Following the Bayonet, Soldiers who completed all graduation requirements were awarded their crossed rifles at Honor Hill (entrance pictured below) becoming Infantry Soldiers!

Before I became a WolfHound, I was in 1/58th Inf way, way, back in 86-87. Charlie Co, under Captain Norton. IOBC, ANOC, BNOC etc, seemed like we were always OPFOR the entire time I was there...lol I haven’t been able to find any 1/58 references. Is it still in the Brigade or deactivated?
I was with the HHC 1st 58th then it was HHC 1st 18th
This was my old unit when i was with them back in Sept 87 to Feb 90, nothing but good memories with my old unit which was 1st 58th then it switched to 1st 18th
Last night my son completed a solo 3205 mile transcontinental automobile road trip from JBLM, WA to Columbus. He reports to the 197th Brigade tomorrow. All his family and friends thank the Creator for his safe trip.
Is there somewhere to send the videos for our SITs turning green?? *Specifically Charlie Co-247* TIA!
From a Scout Platoon, 1-18th In Bn, 197th Veteran, Welcome back! Sledgehammer!
