General News

 

Sorry there has been such a gap between newsletters.  The unit has not been very busy as of late and the schedule has been pretty light.  I’ll try to get them out at least every other month from here on out, even if it’s just a short one.

 

The company meeting was held on Sunday, October 30th at the Larson Plantation.  We had a really good turn out and a great time as usual.  We got to meet the new recruit Howard Pearce and his family and welcome back Ryan Hollaway from Florida.  The Pearce family came in their finest southern attire and are well on their way to being all coutered up.  We discussed the upcoming events, the gentlemen did a little drill and manual of arms practice, there was a cartridge rolling lesson and practice, and lots of great conversation.  After the meeting there was a wonderful spaghetti dinner.  Thanks to everyone for bringing the side dishes and desert.  The LT. is asking that as you need to replace uniform pants, jackets, vests, etc. that you get jean wool.  In his research of the 10th Georgia he has found that jean wool was what was issued by the Columbus depot and since we are supposed to be from the Columbus area it would be more authentic.

On a Sadder Note

 

I’m not sure who remembers Brother Steve McKenna from the 6th US, but he passed away this last week.  He was a friend and leader to all of the G Company men and ladies alike.  We will miss his wonderful singing voice and jovial spirit.  I found this picture of him at the Moore Park event last year and thought I would include it with this note.
