Day 157: SFC TGLEWIS Reporting For Duty Sir!

SFC TGLEWIS Reporting For Duty Sir! – August 4, 2011

It’s a big day at General Sarge HQ! General Sarge assembled his Joint Task Force quite some time ago. The Task Force is made up of his furry-friends from different branches of the military who all serve abroad. But today the staff at General Sarge HQ grew by one.

On Tuesday, August 2 I received word that a new recruit had embarked on his mission and was heading to General Sarge HQ to report for duty. Today SFC TGLEWIS arrived from Tucson, Arizona with papers in hand…

“Reporting for duty!”

General Sarge is proud to welcome a new set of “paws” around HQ as things do seem to be getting busier around here these days. There’s always something to do and we will find lots of things for SFC TGLEWIS to do as he begins his tour of active duty serving here.

SFC TGLEWIS – A TG Bears Duty Bear

We have to say a special thank you to our new friends at TG Bears who deployed SFC TGLEWIS to General Sarge HQ. He’s an amazing bear and he’s handmade too! If you look closely you will even notice his name TGLEWIS is on his pocket, just like all Army soldiers are identified. We came up with the name by combining TG from TG Bears and Lewis from Fort Lewis since that is where General Sarge’s human-owner, PV2 Ben is currently assigned. We are absolutely thrilled to have a new addition to General Sarge HQ. (I also have to admit that I very excitedly opened up the package and I did have a couple tears in my eyes when I gave him his first hug.)

Once again, thanks so much to TG Bears for encouraging us here and for becoming a great part of – and supporter of – what we’re doing to encourage military families. SFC TGLEWIS also came with a discount code too! If you’d like your own Duty Bear from TG Bears deployed to your home visit their website at – TG Bears Duty Bear – and enter coupon code GeneralSarge#56 at checkout for a $10 discount on a Duty Bear.

Be sure to watch for the post tomorrow as General Sarge is wasting no time in putting SFC TGLEWIS to work! We’re heading out tonight on our first assignment and there will be pictures tomorrow.

Staying Army Strong!

  1. Tuning in from TG Bears base. Glad to hear that TGLEWIS is already making himself useful. It is great to be able to keep in touch here like this and not like in the old days where one had to rely on pens, paper and snail mail. 🙂

  2. Great to see that TGLEWIS is doing well there at General Sarge HQ. Glad that we have a line of quick communication nowadays and don’t have to rely on pen, paper and snail mail to keep up with each other.

    1. Greetings!

      I want to thank you for the care you put into making TGLEWIS. As a Sergeant First Class he is fitting in perfectly here! He’s also catching onto his duties very quickly too.

      Two paws up!
      General Sarge
