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 31st of March I was notified by LTC Gale (3rd Infantry Division
Rear-Detachment Commander) that our Brigade had suffered the loss of a
Soldier from E/2-69 AR. The Soldier lost his life while conducting
combat operations in Iraq. The next of kin of our fallen Soldier has
been notified. I ask you for your prayers for this Sledgehammer Soldier
and his Family.
