Battle Awards (14 Oct 2007).

29TH INFANTRY DIVISION
116TH REGIMENT, 1ST BN
HEADQUARTERS DESK
$2
 


Ladies and Gentlemen,

This month marks a special event in history for the 29th Infantry Division. On this past 14th of October, Charlie Company went to battle with the 2nd Ranger Battalion. The input to this battle was discipline, maturity, respect for our opponents, appreciation for opportunity, and many long nights of practicing. The outcome of this battle made it all worth it.

The respectable men of the 2nd Rangers put up a very worthy fight, taking with them several casualties each round. The first of two rounds included a 29th attack on allies versus a 2ndRB attack on axis. As live was called, both teams rushed from their spawns to meet barrel to barrel at the middle. Sustaining some casualties, Charlie company managed to push through the initial front on the main flanks while supressing the secondary flank. After the break-through, the rangers fought hard but were outnumbered and defeated.

The second round still provided an opportunity for tides to change and potential defeat, should a tie had been made. With victory fresh in our memory, the soldiers of the 29th were calmed and motivated by their platoon leader and reminded to stay focused and not let victory bring them to carelessness. The axis attack went smoother than expected for the 29th, who made ample use of crossfire from different flanks, pinning down the enemy to allow them to be advanced upon. Staff Sergeant Sensational was holding the left flank with a machine gunner and several riflemen. Rather than simply supressing the enemy's attack on her flank, she was able to move her men past the enemy, taking each one down as they went. Private, First Class Toljamo showed exceptionally brave actions, risking his life to allow his flanking team a safe pathway. With only one enemy left, PFC Toljamo volunteered himself to take point and move along the rear of the map, scouting out each area while keeping up speed. With his supporting flank behind him, he was able to pin down the enemy and get a great quick-shot off at him with his rifle, finalising the victory for his flank and for the 29th Infantry Division.

Today we celebrate not only a tally mark in our record, but a true example of why we in the 29th work so very hard. Often our constant drilling and training in all areas has been questioned, but it is times like these that we are able to point at a concrete return of investment and say, "This is why we train."

This victory is an example not only to the participating members of the scrimmage, but to the entire unit's, past, present, and future members of what our goal is and why we work so hard to achieve it. We are the Fighting 29th; not by blood or right, but by training and cooperation. We've earned it.

I proudly award these medals of recognition for your courageous actions this past 14th;
