A velvet hammer is sent when there is a loss in the the brigade. Peace be with the families of our fallen Soldiers. God bless our troops!
On the 8th of March, I was notified that G/203rd (FSC/1-10 FA) suffered the loss of two Soldiers. The next of kin has been notified. These Soldiers died in a vehicle accident near Al Kut, Iraq while supporting operations. I ask you for your prayers for these Sledgehammer Soldiers' families.
