Vargas Joins A Company 2/224th...

We've gotten a break from the Ft. Dix routine of classes, immunizations, issuing of equipment, etc., thanks to the assignment of SFC Vargas to A Company 2/224th.

SFC Vargas' history is classified, of course, and can only be provided on a need to know basis. She's already to be a valuable asset to our unit. giving us an additional Crew Chief for flying missions and some much needed periods of gut wrenching laughter with her very dry sense of humor.

1st Lt. Ryman, A Co 2nd Platoon Leader, presented Vargas with her Crew Member Wings just before she joined us for her first briefing on IEDs. She sat through the briefing taking in all of the information provided and, at one point, seemed to be the only one not having to fight the sleep monster during the brief.

We welcome SFC Vargas to the unit and hope she continues to be a vital asset. I am sure many soldiers of the unit will chastise my decision to dedicate a post to just one soldier, but once they meet her, they will understand why she deserves her own platform in which to stand. She is a model soldier!

She doesn't appear to have a very thick skin. I don't know how she will fare with all those "Large dispositions" in your unit.
