3647th family members. If you haven't heard from your Soldiers a lot this last week it's because they've been training from sun up to sun down. The Battalion Command team is incredibly proud of them and for you holding down the home front so they can train. They love you and will see you soon.

Slay the Beast!
Great visit with you all today. True professionals. From the attention you paid to our talk, the capabilities brief and the time the Soldiers took to educate myself and CSM Coleman we were truly impressed. Keep driving on with your dedication to each other, the unit, Commonwealth and nation.

See you soon.


Slay the Beast!
Day before the beginning of AT. Put on your right mindset to hit the ground running. Make sure your families are set and know you love them. Be ready to work hard, overcome your obstacles, grow physically/mentally/spiritually and be safe so you come out of this two weeks stronger than you are today.

Slay the Beast!
Team 529!
How many of you are facing the “You can’t” voice in your head lately? I know I certainly have! Life has a funny way of challenging us all differently. The “you can’t” loves to accompany us on those challenging moments and test our resolve. Lately for me it has been PT. I have suffered a calamity of injuries over the years, two back surgeries, shoulder surgery, ankle fracture, and recently a nagging IT band issue. “You can’t” likes to remind me of such all the time…” you can’t go running, you can’t do push ups, you can’t, you can’t, you can’t…” It is a constant battle; can you relate? Here is one thing I have realized in my short time-battles are fast and wars are long. Prepare yourself mentally and physically to win the war, knowing that you will loose some battles. Focus on the war! Crush that “you can’t” and own it, whatever it is; school, work, PT, etc. What “you can’t” are you dealing with?

As a former member of this great unit I am sad to hear about the passing of 2 of our teammates!!!
Congratulations to CPT and Mrs Michael Terry Jr. on a job well done! Great to see many of you again today.
