April 16, 20017 - GARUOA, Cameroon - Easter has always been a special holiday where friends and family gather and enjoy one another's company. The holiday had a different meaning this year for Soldiers of Able Company, 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, who are currently deployed to Cameroon from their home station at Fort Stewart, Georgia.

This year the men not only shared the holiday with their fellow Soldiers, but also with their hosts and partners. The Cameroonian Air Force hosted Able Company Soldiers for a large brunch the Saturday before Easter. The event was organized by Cameroonian Air Force Col. Barthelmy T'Silla, commander of the Cameroonian Air Base hosting the Soldiers.
"This is not only a time to celebrate Easter," said T'Silla. "It is also a time to come together and celebrate the sacrifices of [our] nations."
Local restaurant owners and residents of the base brought in home-cooked regional delicacies. Soldiers filled their plates from the buffet with foods like home-made donuts, kebabs, fresh fruit and other local fare.

International Waters, 3-10-2017: Dear Support Our Troops,  My team and I are with an F-18 squadron, VFA-137 and are currently deployed aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. We received a care package today that absolutely made the day for 11 sailors in my shop. For the majority of those sailors this was their first deployment, and seeing their faces light up, was priceless. Your package arrived at just the right time, and truly lifted the spirits of some tired and hardworking sailors. The letters included in the package brought tears to our eyes, and are now taped to our office wall, bringing color to an otherwise drab work space. Thank you so much for all you do. Please keep up the good fight on the home front. Thank you~!

SW Asia, December 26, 2016 - Dear SOT team, We received your tokens of appreciation and as an entire team felt the love each and every person put into creating it. After reading through every card and heart felt note we made it our mission to pull every soldier in eye sight to take a picture. Unfortunately there were only for in eye sight so we made sure to grab every civilian as well. So on behalf of the Automated Information Management (AIM) Team we thank you from the bottom of our heart. I can only hope the attached picture conveys the many thanks we have for your acts of kindness.
