Homecoming Update

The 172nd Field Artillery homecoming will take place on Wednesday, February 2nd at 2 PM at the NH Army National Guard Armory on Canal St. in Manchester.

Today's Union Leader features a few short interviews with members of the 172nd, including one with SSG Larry Dube. SSG Dube is tat rarest of characters, someone who served in both the Vietnam and Iraq conflicts. I had the honor of serving in a battery fire direction center with SSG Dube, and I can say with confidence that he is a good man and a damn good NCO, someone who was always willing to assist not only the privates and Spec-4s who served under him, but the Lieutenants and Captains who (theoretically) served over him.

Welcome home, and have fun in Florida...
