The Assassins has a great week. It started with two more sections qualifying through Artillery Table VI. Next, over 50 Assassins qualified on their individually assigned M4s. Finally, we had the great opportunity to promote SSG Craft. The promotion is certainly well deserved and we are proud of all of the Soldiers for their hard work this week. #ALTW

Long overdue update. Some big things happening in Alpha Battery!

1SG McNatt moved from the Assassins to HHB and we welcomed 1SG Pettigrew and his family back to the Assassin family.

All sections successfully executed their certifications and qualifications.

PFC Prieto was recognized by the battalion commander and CSM for his volunteer service.

The Assassins rocked what could be the last of two APFTs ever!

Exceptional work by the battery. Looking forward to crushing first brigade at JRTC over the next few weeks!

The Assassins said goodbye to an awesome Army family today. SGT Salas and his wife are off to another duty station. They will be missed.

On a happier note, SPC De Dios was re-enlisted by LT Nuqui today. Sometime in the future he will be heading off to Germany!

Today was bittersweet. We were fortunate to be able to promote now CPL Busby, one of our gunners. Certainly a well deserved promotion.

However, we had to say goodbye to our supply sergeant, SSG Bove. We appreciate his contributions to the Battery and wish him well as he moves on.
