“The Army goes rolling along,” and the mystical boots have a new home until next time 1SG Sumpter!

Today we hailed several great leaders: 1LT Stanczuk (25th TE), 2LT Golosov (92nd), CW2 Miller (HHC), CPT Evans (HHC), and the newest Company Commander (HHC) CPT Deshaise. They have been wonderful additions and will continue to push the Lightning Dragon Battalion forward!

To the detriment of the battalion, but benefit to the Army and civilian sector, we farewelled some true warriors. CW2 Aughtman(25TE and HHC), CPT Harvey (HHC), 1LT Wakefield (51st) and CPT McGregor (92nd and HHC) all led the charge and shaped the culture of the battalion. Your contributions will make a lasting impact on the Soldiers and families of the 83D! Thank you!

What a great night and thank you to all those that participated! Thank you Fish Tales for hosting this bunch!
