    Well, yesterday evening was the final day of the Sullivan Cup, a competition for the best tank crew. And a team from my brigade, from 1-252 Armor from North Carolina, took top honors.

    A National Guard team, from Colorado and Pennsylvania, also won the Best Ranger competition this year.

    An NCO from the California National Guard took the Top Shot, overall individual winner, at the All Army Small Arms Competition.

    And a team from the Illinois National Guard won the All Army overall team championship.

    It's been a very good year for the Army National Guard, if I do say so myself.Biggrin

    It looks like everyone had a blast (and certainly a well deserved one for all).
