Jawn Carry - Looks Like 3rd BCT, 1st Cav, drew the short straw

Posted By Blackfive • [December 19, 2006]

One reason that I'm reasonably sure that there won't be too many pictures of Senator Kerry with the troops is the PAO is well aware of what troops will do.  So here are the pictures that are available so far, officially, from the US Army.  Since no commanders volunteered to host Senator Kerry, I think it's safe to say that Colonel Sutherland drew the short straw for the suicide mission.

Number One: Sen. John Kerry (middle left) is greeted by Col. David Sutherland (far right) and Command Sgt. Maj. Donald Felt (far left), the commander and command sergeant major of 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, at a helipad on Forward Operating Base Warhorse in Baqubah, Iraq Dec. 16.

Number Two:  Col. David Sutherland, commander of 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, briefs Sen. John Kerry on the current situation of his area of operations, the province of Diyala, at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, Bagubah, Iraq.

Number Three: After speaking with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division commander, Col. David Sutherland, Sen. John Kerry (right) speaks with Iraqi officials about the problems the Diyala province faces. The meeting was held at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, Baqubah, Iraq Dec. 16.

34263

Number Four:  Sen. John Kerry speaks with Soldiers of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, Baqubah, Iraq Dec. 16. The senator’s visit included a quick briefing on the problems the unit is facing and a visit with Iraqi government officials.

Caption Contest anyone...?

My condolences to Col. Sutherland.

Update:  Many of you have pointed out that Jim at Parkway Rest Stop proposes a medal for COL Sutherland and his soldiers.
