11th ACR welcome home day pics...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: 11th ACR welcome home day pics...

Fort Irwin held a Welcome Home, 2 day celebration for the 11th ACR soldiers that just came back from a year in Iraq. It was yesterday and wraps up this evening. The following pictures are from the static displays that were inside and just outside the museum. Even the Terminator himself, CA Governor Schwarzenegger, was on had to award 15 Purple Hearts, of which, one went to one of my Staff Sergeants in the mortar platoon.

These final three pictures are inside the museum. These maniquiens are done up to represent a voting station. The 11th ACR was tasked with guarding these sites. Notice the one "citizen" holding up his purple finger.

I hope you all enjoy these pictures. This may be my last post with pictures for a while. On Wednesday the 22nd, I head off to Fort Eustis for 88N re-class course that is 6 weeks long. While there, I will be taking lots of pictures and recording many serial/USA numbers off of as many items as I can find in my off time. I will try to check out this site when I can so I don't miss out on any good information or conversation. I will submit sit-reps from time to time from Ft Eustis. Until then.....

Good luck with your new career field.

This was one picture I forgot to post. SSG Cannon had just arrived to 11th ACR right before they deployed. Assigned to HHT 2/11th, Scout/Sniper platoon. Previously he was with 82nd Airborne, where he earned his first CIB and Combat patch. I told him it was uncommon for an 11th ACR NCO to have a Ranger TAB, Master Parachutist Wings, and CIB. He just laughed and said he was trying to keep a "Low Profile". I could tell he was a quiet professional. I was in my uniform, a "triple stack E-7", and this E-6 was the consumate professsional. Stood at "parade rest" even when I told him to be "at ease". Every question I had about the sniper weapons. he answered as if he were talkin to the Squadron Commander. One civilian walked by and asked if the 50cal Barrett sniper rifle was a "SAW", (Squad Automatic Weapon, 5.56mm MG). As all the other soldiers looked at each other trying to withhold their laughter, SSG Cannon gave a very professional and "Politically Correct" answer, as to not make the civilian feel or look like a fool. These are the soldiers I loved to have serving under me in the Mortar platoon. These are the type of men that make me proud to serve with.

DITTO!! And what a privilege it is!

(Ain't it cool how you run into one, now and then, that reminds you of everything good about our soldiers?)
