On November 2nd, 2020 The Polish Military Contingent while deployed to Afghanistan in assistance to Resolute Support, celebrated what is known in Poland as Zaduski meaning "All Soul's Day." During this celebration a memorial was held honoring the fallen Polish, Illinois National Guard, and Courage Soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom. A special remembrance was held for 2-22 IN fallen Soldier Staff Sergeant Michael Ollis.
In 2013 while deployed to an outpost in Ghazni, Afghanistan SSG Ollis along with this Polish Military Contingent came under heavy fire. SSG Ollis made the ultimate sacrifice putting himself directly between the enemy and a Polish Officer. The display of Heroism and Courage that day by SSG Ollis has made a lasting imprint on the members of the Polish Military who took this day to pay their respects to a fallen Friend, Loved One, and Hero.

Juneteenth (June + 19), also referred to as Freedom Day, celebrates the emancipation of the enslaved people in America. #OTD June 19, 1865, the U.S. Army arrived in Galveston, Texas, two and a half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, with news that the Civil War ended along with slavery. Roughly 250,000 people gained their freedom. As we remember this day in history, let us come together, knowing that our people are our greatest strength.

Before being released for the weekend, CPT Trovato gives some brief education on what today’s date marks.

Today is Juneteenth, a holiday currently celebrated and recognized in 47 states, including New York. It’s the date that marks legal slavery ending in America. It recalls the necessary military enforcement of emancipation and enfranchisement by American troops after the Civil War had ended. The story of Juneteenth relates one of many such enforcements, when on or about June 19, 1865, two years after the proclamation had been issued, and two months after the end of the war, General Gordon Granger and his soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to spread the news.

For those wishing to partake in celebration there’s one tomorrow (Saturday June 20) from noon - 4 pm at American Legion Post 61, 138 Sterling Street, Watertown. Fort Drums 10th MTN DIV band will be performing at this event as well!

With that said, please keep all wall posts clean and Family friendly! DEEDS NOT WORDS!! Triple Deuce Unit History: Two regiments have held the designation 22nd Infantry since 1812. The original 22nd Infantry regiment was officially constituted on 26 June 1812. General Winfield Scott was responsible for outfitting these new troops, but due to a shortage of blue cloth, he was forced to substitute a rough, gray material for his riflemen. On 5 July 1814, the regiment entered into a battle with a superior British force near the town of Chippewa, Canada. The British general, Sir Jonathan Rialls saw the gray clad regiment in the center and the right of the American battle line. Rialls is said to have remarked, “Today should be an easy day. Those men are nothing but the buffalo militia.” The regiment started its final charge only fifty meters from the British when the British broke and left the battlefield. Rialls’ adjutant asked the general if he was sure that the gray clad soldiers were militia, general Rialls replied, “Those are regulars by God.” General Rialls’ statement of praise has become the official motto of the 22nd Infantry Regiment. In honor of the first regular formation to defeat a superior British force, the United States Military Academy at West Point adopted a gray uniform based on the design worn by the 22nd Infantry. This uniform is still the official dress uniform of the United States Military Academy. The rebirth of the 22nd Infantry Regiment occurred when the regiment was reconstituted on 21 September 1866. For the next 32 years, the unit saw action at the Little Big Horn campaign, Pine Ridge, and the North Dakota and Montana campaigns. In addition, the regiment fought the Indians in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Idaho. The sinking of the USS Maine in Havana harbor, Cuba in 1898 gave the 22nd Infantry a new mission. The 22nd had the distinction of being the first American unit to land on Cuban soil. During the attack on Seboney, the regiment captured the first Spanish colors to be captured in the war. Losses to the regiment were heavy; approximately 65 percent of the men and 85 percent of the officers, to include the regimental commander, did not return. In 1899, the 22nd Infantry Regiment was ordered to the Philippines to quell the insurrection. The regiment was given the task of following the insurgent Aguinaldo and finishing him. With limited supplies, the regiment made one of the most arduous and famous foot marches ever undertaken by the United States Army. Their mission was carried out successfully and for their gallant actions in the Cuban and Philippine campaigns, two members of the regiment were awarded the Medal of Honor. in 1906, the regiment returned to the United States where it spent five years “under the canvas,” along the Mexican border, the longest period of continuous field time by any regiment in American history. The 22nd Infantry was one of the first units to hit the Normandy coast in the Second World War, landing at the beach at 0745 hours on D-day. Fighting its way inland, the 22nd pierced through enemy opposition to the outskirts of Cherbourg, then played a major part in clearing the Cotenin peninsula. During the Vietnam War, the 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division and the 25th Infantry Division. The battalion took part in “Operation Attleboro” and in one of the most fiercely contested engagements of the Vietnam conflict, the Battle of Ninh. When it was over, eight NVA regiments staggered away, leaving behind 200 dead and the 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment with a valorous unit award after helping break the siege of Kontum. The regiment’s last mission in Vietnam prior to deactivation was an attack on enemy sanctuaries in Cambodia to root out NVA insurgents. The 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment was reactivated on 25 September 1986 as a part of the 10th Mountain Division (Light). In October 1993, the battalion was alerted to deploy to Somalia. During the 5-month deployment, the battalion conducted security missions in every major U.N. Compound and supply route. The battalion’s increased presence in Mogadishu dropped the incidence of hostile encounters aimed at U.S. Forces to zero. The battalion was again called to action in September 1994 when the 10th Mountain Division deployed to Haiti during operation restore democracy. The 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry led the 10th Mountain Division into Haiti as the first unit to conduct operations on Haitian soil with an air-assault off of the U.S.S. Eisenhower. In support of the Global War on Terrorism, the 2nd Battalion has deployed three times. The battalion first deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. From August 2003 through May 2004, the battalion distinguished itself participating in a variety of missions throughout the entire country, including vehicle checkpoints, cordon and searches, air assaults and search and attacks. Next, the battalion deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The battalion was responsible for maintaining stability in the contentious Abu Ghraib district of western Baghdad from August 2005 to July 2006. The air assaults, raids and searches, combined with training the Iraqi security forces and humanitarian relief operations effectively disrupted Anti-Iraqi Forces. The 2nd battalion returned to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Task Force Courage took responsibility of the ethnically diverse and volatile region of Kirkuk in northern Iraq. From September 2007 to October 2008, the battalion improved the reality and perception of increased security, stability, and normality among all Iraqis in the province. The battalion coupled combat operations with patrols designed to enhance the Iraqi’s ability for self-governance. Not only did the battalion conduct air assaults, raids and searches, but it also strengthened Iraqi security forces, involved more locals in security through the sons of Iraq program, made city councils more effective, and created job opportunities. These actions significantly reduced violence and created an environment less conducive to insurgent activities. Most recently, the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Task Force Triple Deuce deployed to over 18 different locations across Afghanistan in order to augment the NATO Training Mission – Afghanistan / Combined Security Transition Command – Afghanistan. Task Force Soldiers were responsible for training the vast majority of Afghan Soldiers graduated into the Afghan Army in 2010. From January to December 2010, Triple Deuce Soldiers improved the quality of Afghan Soldiers and the Afghan training command across theater. Although tasked with a highly unusual mission for an Infantry Battalion, the men and women performed exceptionally well, ultimately improving the training of over 50,000 Afghan Soldiers and thousands of Afghan police. The history of the 22nd Infantry Regiment and the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry is a long and honorable one. Those of us who continue to carry the colors forward in the future rely on our proud past to maintain the warrior spirit to fight and win. We remember the actions that created the regiment’s first motto, “regulars by god!” As an inspiration to us all to live by our current motto “deeds not words!”

I have the story of that battle in Dec 23-24th 1944, near Osweiler….I dedicate this in remembrance to those Soldiers who fought there, with my Father,"Tuck" who was the last BAR man after the battle...and to you. Another Soldier, SGM Fowle (who has passed on) told me he loved this poem...So I am presenting it, now. Tribute to the 2/22 Infantry, in Remembrance for the fallen ; RIP Warriors past and current... A Christmas story told to me. Southern Tip of the Bulge in Dec 23, 44…. It was the night before Christmas in forty-four A snowing and blowin, what could be more George and Easy locked in the fight, , in wooded ravines against the German might. Three companies, in the snow ; no where to go to hold their ground , is all they were told. Fox was in position and got to high ground, above a gorge to cover the flank of Easy and George. amidst snow covered boulders, and downed trees they fought.; The enemy tried to break through, but not on that slope. Not one, Triple Deucer let them get past; _ even with multiple counter attacks’ they still held fast .. .There was fewer than before, but they would fight to the last. Against immeasurable odds, the three companies fought on_ but they might not last ; until the dawn... The SS attack penetrated their lines; Company F was caste into peril that time..!. Hit with five companies, all through the night… An SS unit came in for the fight.They struggled and fought’; yes, on deaths ground; sixty men fought ~ The CO., he shouted," Every man to himself!" The situation deemed hopeless, to hold, that cold dark night. But that didn't stop the Deucers’ that night. It seems the CO’s shout. - It transformed the fight... , galvanizing their strength and their spirit to boot; No Germans would claim their place there, that night. Fox out-fought them until morning light__ It was their hill, and they claimed it ! With the blood of their fellows, that cold bitter night! Whoever could claim a spot where they fought__ that night? Only they' who lay cold- under a blanket of snow. Easy and George fought the same kind of fight .... giving up no ground to the Kraut that night.... The Deucers survived that cold steel fight, and Germans pulled back, with eighty less men_ The German had failed, to take Luxemburg City __’ and now they were broken, and it was a pity; That so many lives were lost in the War, for the hopes of a dictator __to conquer all. The fellows of Fox were twenty-eight men,. With their brothers in arms; They paid a high price; they did it for us, for the good of us all. A high price for freedom, they paid.... for us all. "DEEDS NOT WORDS" Robert Tucker
