These past couple of weeks have been quite hectic to say the very least. There has been many changes, updates and in general just things happening. This has been quite full on to completely digest and to evolve ourselves to the new changes. I commend all 1st platoon personnel in their actions and fluidity during these changes.
We have been graciously given 2 new teams over this time to add to our arsenal. Golf 1-1 & Delta 1-1. These teams will complete the effective and excellent fighting force of 1st Platoon as the best contingent within TFAC.
These past 2 weeks of operations has been a nice change of pace for all I have seen within the platoon. SGT Henza with the assistance of CAPT Thomas have run the PLT well in my time of an 1-1 Sunray LOA. I will return soon once I obtain some more information to better my position as 1st PL CO.
Additionally I cannot thank this community enough overall. We are all here willing and able to help out another person in need at a moments notice without any wish to be thanked or commended for ones actions. We are just here as a thankless job. From this past week I have seen an incredible amount of support given throughout this community. You are all madmen and I cannot ask for a better community to be with.
