Schweinella's R & R and Wilbur's Promotion!

April 2008:  Schweinella had a long and rough trip from Afghanistan to Schweinfurt.   It was all worth it once she was reunited with Wilbur and little Wilnella.  They rested a few days in Schweinfurt and then went to Garmisch.  From there they headed off to Vincenza, Venice,  Pisa and Livorno Italy.  They came back and rested a few days before she had to report back to duty in Afghanistan.  Schweinella returned  to FOB Naray and is once again working hard for the 1-91 CAV and the citizens of Afghanistan.  She has great memories of her R&R, and is excited about coming back to Schweinfurt sometime this summer.

Upon her return to Afghanistan, Schweinella was pleased to find out that children from SES had written letters to the deployed soldiers. April was the Month of the Military Child, and SES sponsored a table at the Family Palooza on Askren Manor.  The idea for the table was to reinforce the writing standards and give children a way that they could support the deployed soldiers.  Children either colored a picture or wrote a letter to the soldiers of 1-91 CAV to let them know Schweinfurt supports them and  to help them get through the last few months of their deployment.  It was a great project and the letters gave a lot of joy to the soldiers as can be seen in the pictures below.

May 22, 2008:  SES students attended a special assembly.  The 1-77 Unit (formally 1-7 FA) presented our mascot, Wilbur Schweinfurt, with the patch of his reflagged unit.  Wilbur was also awarded a combat patch for his two tours of duty with the unit and was promoted from SPC to SGT.  Members of the 1-91 CAV group showed a slide show of GEN Flat Schweinella's adventures in Afghanistan.  (pictures above)
