It’s time for our Military Child of the Week Salute! Every Monday we salute a military child for their sacrifice as a parent – or in some cases both parents – are deployed serving our country. If you’d like to nominate a military child for our weekly salute it’s easy to do!

Today we are saluting another wonderful child we met at the Celebrate the Military Child Holiday Bonanza in December when we traveled to San Diego. We had such a wonderful time and met so many great people too!

Please say hello to Isaha Jones! He’s three years and here he is with his big brother SPC Andrew Jones who’s in the Army Reserves Cav Unit, which is also a division of 11B Infantry Division.

Of course we do have a special place for any and all Infantry soldiers here at General Sarge HQ since my human-owner PFC Ben is also 11B! The guys on the front lines breaking down doors, clearing houses and making sure the area is secure and safe.

So again we say congrats to Isaha for being our Military Child of the Week Salute and a great big “Two paws up” to both you and your big brother SPC Jones bravely serving our country.

Two paws up!
General Sarge

Last week we received an exciting phone call from PV2 Ben.

Day 50 - Ben Called

Of course anytime we hear from General Sarge’s human-owner is always a great time. It’s even better when we have time for a video-call too! Those are especially fun since we can see Ben and he can see us. General Sarge loves seeing his human-owner and bringing him up to date on what’s going on around HQ.

The last video-call with PV2 Ben, General Sarge gave him a tour of HQ showing him all the bears ready for deployment and other things we’ve gathered as we move forward here encouraging military families “one furry friend at a time”.

Last week PV2 Ben had a favor to ask too. He wanted to know if we could deploy a bear to one of his buddies in his unit at Fort Lewis. Well of course we can! After all, we can’t say no to General Sarge’s human-owner can we.
