Welcome to the Red Dragon Battalion

Traditionally, new commander's spouses are welcomed into the group with an event sponsored by the unit spouses.  I have planned several of these myself and loved getting the chance to introduce new spouses into our unit Family.

It was a completely different thing for me to actually be welcomed into our new battalion.  I was extremely nervous, but also very anxious to meet all the ladies.  Our battalion XO's wife planned the event and it was absolutely wonderful ... low-key but special, and a fabulous night of meeting fantastic new ladies.   Sending HUGS to all who helped and attended ... I feel very welcomed and very lucky to be a part of such a neat group!

Each lady introduced themselves and placed a flower in a vase etched with the battalion crest.  The vase was my welcome gift ... and I cherish it!  This was such a neat event for me.

I was so excited to be able to welcome new spouses into our unit!

Look at these lovely ladies in our battalion with some brigade guests, too.
With my sweet Field Artillery sister!
