This is an exceptional unit that has accomplished many remarkable things in a challenging and stressful environment. Without reservation, I would put this unit up against any active duty or reserve FST out there. They have saved lives, and I am honored to have the privilege to work along side of them the last 7 weeks.
|The best group of enlisted and NCOs I have ever worked with.|
|1980th FST with previous provider group.|
|"Live to die another day."|
|Our goodbye bonfire/cigar party for the 1980th FST. The wood was "acquired" from numerous locations under dubious circumstances. Don't ask...|
The new FST, the 691st from New York, is up and functioning. The 691st knows that they have big shoes to fill, and I am confidant that they are up to the task.
Meanwhile, there still is work to do.
