Call of Duty Winners – March 5, 2011

Day 53 General Sarge With Call of Duty Winners

General Sarge with Call of Duty Winners!

After being snowed out last weekend, the Army Recruiting Center in Newark, New York held their Call of Duty – Black Ops tournament today. General Sarge was more than happy to pose with the winners for a picture. The turn out was great and we have two winners! The tournament was held on a PS3 and an XBox 360.

The over-all champion on each format won an iPod!

The recruiters at the center were very happy everyone had a great time. There was lots of pizza and lots of fun! They even made sure there was pizza left for Sandra and I when we arrived.

As you can see, there was quite a turn out for the tournament. This was at the end of the tournament so some people had already left. But, this is a fine looking group of young men and women who had a great time!

One final note, yes, this post for General Sarge
is rather late today.

But, there’s good reason for that. We received a phone call from Ben tonight! His platoon went to Blue Phase which meant they got their cell phones back. We’ve been texting throughout the day and he called tonight too. We had a great chat and it was great to hear his voice. If all goes well, he’ll still have his phone tomorrow and call us again.

  1. Hooray and congratulations to the winners of the tournament and also to Ben for going to Blue Phase too!!! Getting those phones back so they can have that connection with family is wonderful, I am sure he appreciates the ability to stay connected more now than ever. I am so happy for him to have reached that phase and General Sarge must have been happy to read those texts too..

    1. Hey Janet;

      Ben was very happy to move into Blue Phase. As for the phones, he called this morning and chatted for a few minutes. But, now the Drill Sgt. has collected them all back as it’s time to do more work. LOL! Hopefully the wait for the next time they get phone privileges won’t be too long.

  2. Congratulations to the winners, great to see General Sarge joining in with the celebrations and great to hear that you’ve heard from Ben, you’ll be getting saw thumbs from all the texting you may be doing 😉

    1. General Sarge loves to visit places and he was thrilled to be invited for the picture op with the winners of the Call of Duty tournament at the Recruiting Center.
