Plans are afoot to embed with the 2-506 Infantry in Paktika Province.  If all goes well, the hard work will begin several weeks from now.  The Battalion Commander is Lieutenant Colonel Don Hill.

    It is always encouraging to read good reports of our Military. And, as a mom, I like to know the soldiers are warm. Thanks for the report Michael. Keep yourself warm!

    Easy Co., always in the thick of it.

    My wife's Grandfather, Sgt. Floyd Talbert was one of the members of E. Company, 506th Regiment (Band of Brothers) during WWII. He was the same way, I'm glad to see his successors display the same commitment.

    Dick Winters paid him the ultimate tribute: "If I had to pick out just one man to be with me on a mission in combat, it would be Talbert"

    Can't wait to hear your stories and see your pictures from this embed! Through Soldiers' Angels, I've kind of adopted the Chaplain and his 200 soldiers in the 101st ABD at FOB Rushmore in Paktika and they are with TF Currahee. Better get some more care packages in the mail! Godspeed, Michael. Be safe!
