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!
