Ringing In The New Year
Greetings fellow bear lovers!
Yes it has been quite a while since I’ve done anything here at General Sarge HQ but there’s also been a lot on the go. I’ve been on leave for about a year as my human-owners parents moved back to Ontario, Canada a year ago. It’s all been beary exciting and a lot of change going on too. But, I think we’re slowly getting set back up again to deploy more teddy bears to military kids once again!
Aside from my human-owners parents – and me of course – moving to Ontario, Canada my human-owner Ben has been promoted to Specialist and he transferred to FT. Collins, CO too! Wow, talk about a lot of change going on! I did get to see Ben in September and of course it’s always great to get hugs from him!
Special Events – November 19, 2011
I can’t believe how far we’ve come since my human owners Dad started taking pictures of me every day. When PV2 Ben shipped off for Basic Training in January of this year his Dad and I started having fun taking pictures. Now look at us! My handler set up my very own website and we’re “Comforting military families one furry friend at a time” too!

Not only are we deploying teddy bears from General Sarge but we’re also now being invited to special events too.
On Veterans Day we were invited to a special Veterans’ Day Salute hosted by One Soldier At A Time in Rochester, New York. We had a wonderful time at the event that was held at Calvary Chapel of Rochester.
We now have a really cool set up too. Do you like it?
