Velvet Hammer - Fallen Soldier
A velvet hammer is sent when there is a loss in the the brigade. Peace be with the family of our fallen Soldier. God bless our troops!
On the 7th of January I was notified by LTC Gale (3rd Infantry Division Rear-Detachment Commander) that our Brigade has suffered the loss of one of our Soldiers from HHC/1-15 IN. The next of kin of our fallen Soldier has been notified. I ask you for your prayers for this Sledgehammer Soldier and his Family.
