Task Force Member – Gunny Bear
April 15, 2011
A military Task Force is made up of people from all branches of the military. Up to this point the members of the General Sarge Task Force have all been Army bears. But today is different! Today General Sarge is proud to introduce you to the newest member of his Task Force who happens to be from the Marines.

Please say hello to Marine Corp Gunnery Sergeant Gunny Bear! General Sarge has been friends with Major Hank from Devil Dog Brew for quite some time. Gunny’s human-owner is Kendri, Major Hank’s son. Kendri’s girlfriend Merrie got the Build-A-Bear for Kendri this past Valentine’s Day. They named him Penguin. But when Kendri heard about General Sarge and all he’s doing with his Dad, he decided Penguin needed a Marine’s uniform and a name change. As a result, Gunny Bear was born! He’s looking very smart in his dress uniform here.

New General Sarge Logo – April 12, 2011
First off, I want to say thanks to all of our new readers. The support and interest in General Sarge is wonderful and encouraging. Making this transition from family to military family has been an interesting one. It’s also an ever changing one as we move through the different phases of military life with our boys in the Army. Ben is wrapping up his Basic Training at Fort Benning and by the end of the month we’ll be in Georgia celebrating with him during his graduation. Then after some leave, he will report for his first duty assignment as an active U.S. Army Infantryman. Once again we will be faced with more changes.
We do appreciate the support through this site not only from our readers but also from some sponsors and corporate support we’ve picked up along the way too.
As General Sarge always say – Two paws up!

We have a couple more announcements to make once again today! It seems there’s always something new going on to keep us busy and today General Sarge is thrilled to unveil his new brand new logo! For those of you who have been watching really closely you may have already noticed this logo showing up in a few places over the past couple days. It’s now a new watermark on the pictures and I even dropped in the Task Force version of what we call the Shield logo a few days ago too.
Here at General Sarge HQ we are so thankful for our wonderful design person – Mr. Lee Gang – who is very creative, a stickler for details and always comes up with incredible designs for us, no matter what the project may be. Lee, thanks so much for all of your help.
We’ve come a long way in just a few short months
with General Sarge!
