LTC Timothy Blackwell

Gentlemen, last Friday (December 12, 2014) the Proud Americans concluded our last live fire exercises prior to our deactivation in April 2015. The exercise was named OPERATION ILLINGWORTH. Our last act was to salute all Proud Americans past and present. We started off with a salute consisting of 2 Smoke rounds, and then 32 HE rounds. On the last round we wrote the names of every Proud American killed in combat that we had records on. I had the privilege of sending that round down range with the dignity and honor it deserved.......Patriot "6"
