This attack prompted a declaration of war against Japan and brought the United States into World War II. Bravo Company would join the fight on the shores of Normandy on 6 June, 1944, and end with V-E Day in Germany on 8 May, 1945. Remember today as another opportunity to thank the Greatest Generation for their service to our nation.

In Defense of the Small Unit, in Battle and After the Fighting Ends

Bushmasters...blog in the NY Times by a former Marine and thought provoking. They say a veteran commits suicide once every 80 minutes. Please use this thought as a opportunity and reminder to reach out to your fellow Soldiers in order to help them.

The separation from a small cohesive unit comes as a shock to many who leave the military, but the absence of base, barracks and battalion may make an even stronger case for sticking together.

Thank you to all the Bravo Company veterans of the past, present, and future and the history and legacy you provided to this great unit and the United States Army.

Disappointed with reports coming out of Fort Bragg that the 738th Engineer Company (formerly B/37th) decided to retire Julia as the mascot for the company and change the name of the company AGAIN. Supposedly she was replaced by her supposed last meal, a rabbit. So ends what was to my knowledge a 15 year tradition of a Julius or Julia. Quite sad.

Bushmasters, recently former Bushmaster 37, CPT Charles Ouellette, had a fire destroy his house in Alaska. The family all are fine and getting resettled on-post and CPT Ouellette has returned from Afghanistan to help. Some of you who know the Ouellettes have asked how to help. An account has been established for donations with Alaska USA. Call 1-800-525-9094 and give to account #1710460 for Dana Ouellette. Please continue to keep the family in your thoughts and prayers as they transition through this rough time.

I am not normally one to complain or voice political views in an open forum but was very disappointed this evening while watching the ABC News Nightline story about the Sikh temple shooter. In the story the reporter (Brian Ross) says that the shooter "served in the psychological operations unit at Fort Bragg, NC." The accompanying footage used in the story however is of clearly visible engineer guidons (618, A/37, B/37, C/37) and Soldiers in maroon berets. I have written a complaint to ABC News (on abcnews.go.com) requesting that in the future they review their military footage closer to prevent a false impression from being given to viewers. - MAJ Melchior

On 1 March 1912, CPT Albert Berry jumped from a Benoist pusher biplane from 1,500 feet (457 m) and landed successfully at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, becoming the first person to successfully jump from an aircraft while in flight. The 36 foot (11 m) diameter parachute was contained in a metal canister attached to the underside of the plane - when Berry dropped from the plane his weight pulled the parachute from the canister. Rather than being attached to the parachute by a harness Berry was seated on a trapeze bar. AIRBORNE!!!

Merry Christmas to all you Bushmasters! Please keep in your thoughts and prayers those who are deployed this Christmas season and away from their loved ones and homes.
