Why I Serve: “I continue to serve because I feel that the Army has given me the purpose that I was seeking. Every time that I see one of my Soldier's succeed, I get a reminder of why I chose to serve.

In support of the Foundation Readiness Day and Operation Ironclad, War Eagles team started with reading the story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to seize the opportunity to honor the too often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history. Since 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month.

Today we paid homage in the memory of Army Sgt. William H. Carney, first African American Medal of Honor Awardee, who earned the honor for protecting one of the United States' greatest symbols during the Civil War -- the American flag. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions on July 18, 1863 at Fort Wagner, S.C. while a member of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment in the Civil War - the state's first all-black regiment.

Charge on Fort Wagner
On July 18, 1863, the Soldiers of Carney's regiment led the charge on Fort Wagner. During the battle, the unit's color guard was shot. Carney, who was just a few feet away, saw the dying man stumble, and he scrambled to catch the falling flag. Despite suffering several serious gunshot wounds himself, Carney kept the symbol of the Union held high as he crawled up the hill to the walls of Fort Wagner, urging his fellow troops to follow him. He planted the flag in the sand at the base of the fort and held it upright until his near-lifeless body was rescued. Even then, though, he didn't give it up. Many witnesses said Carney refused to give the flag to his rescuers, holding onto it tighter until, with assistance, he made it to the Union's temporary barracks. SGT Carney lost a lot of blood and nearly lost his life, but not once did he allow the flag to touch the ground. Carney was promoted to the rank of sergeant for his actions. For his bravery, Carney was awarded the Medal of Honor on May 23, 1900. His legacy serves as a shining example of the patriotism that Americans felt at that time, despite the color of their skin.

Hi, am trying to locate Dustoff medic at LZBetty (Phan Thiet, VN) late 68, early 69. Think last name was Troleone or similar. Was a Bird dog cc and friend. He was from Palo Alto, Ca. and on second tour. Guess he was in 247th. Something bad happened to him that myself & buddy were responsible for in many ways. Buddy died in 74. We were all Californians. O***m was involved. I was very short then. Rue that, have tried to trace several times in past. Anyone know or can refer. Am not proficient on computers. Kessler Montijo tele: 805 340 3719 183rd R.A.C. LZBetty 8/68-3/69. Would help you guys load & unload. So much respect for you guys!😎
