Day 162: Welcome Home

Welcome Home – August 9, 2011

Since his arrival at General Sarge HQ we have been keeping SFC TGLEWIS busy. Having an extra set of paws to help out is always a good thing.

As for his official role, it appears General Sarge has assigned SFC TGLEWIS to the position of Travel Coordinator. After completing his first assignment of seeing Ryan off at the bus station in Day 158: Off to Idaho, General Sarge had SFC TGLEWIS assist in picking an Army Reservist friend up from the airport.

Actually, this is more than just a Reservist friend. SPC Tracy Bonzo has become our adopted daughter and her bear, PFC Buddy is also part of the General Sarge Joint Task Force. Tracy was on vacation to Colorado to see her Mom and arrived back in town yesterday. We headed to the airport to make sure she arrived safely back home.

Day 155: Our Beary Good Friend

Our Beary Good Friend – August 2, 2011

Today we took a trip to Eastview Mall where we had a very special planning meeting with our beary good friends at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store.  General Sarge loves meeting his friends at the store and here he is with Renee Rivera the Chief Workshop Manager.

Day 155 - Out Beary Good Friend Renee and all the people at the Eastview Mall store are wonderful supporters of what we’re doing here at General Sarge HQ and now we’re thrilled that Renee is helping us with ideas to get bears for our Gift-A-Bear Campaign too! General Sarge’s human-owners big brother Zack always told us “Renee is the best!” Well, Zack is right and we really appreciate all the help and encouragement we’re receiving from Renee.

In the words of General Sarge…
We give Renee a great big “Two paws up!”

There are exciting things taking place and be sure to watch for a post this weekend about a new member of the General Sarge team – SFC M.M.! We’re working on the paperwork and details but be watching soon for an exciting announcement here on how you can support the Gift-A-Bear Campaign when visiting Eastview Mall in Victor, New York.

Staying Army Strong!
