My father started this page to share information about the soldiers who are either deployed or are preparing to deploy to Iraq. I am currently stationed at Fort Hood, TX with HSB 1-82 Field Artillery, assigned to bravo company, 2-5 Cavalry as a fire support officer soon to be deployed myslef. Recently I was sent to Jordan with some of the officers from the 39th Infantry Division from Arkansas, the division that the Galva guard members are assigned to. From the training we recieved in Jordan, and from the contact with the leaders of the 39th, I can assure you all that the Galva unit will be in capable hands. I will make every attempt that I can to keep an eye on the Galva guys while they are at Fort Hood, and will try to get some pictures of their training posted so family and friends will know how they are preparing. Any unclassified information that I recieve about the 39th area of operation I will post. After serving with the 1st Cavalry division for a year already, I can say without a doubt that Galva's Sons and Daughters are deploying with one of the most capable divisions in the army, and they are in good hands with "America's First Team". Always Ready, 1LT Christopher Sage Doherty, FA ”.

Ciardini of Kewanee to Normal, IL. stopped by and wrote, “I have lived in Kewanee for five years. I have made a lot of great friends here and I think that Kewanee is a nice little town. However, my family is moving soon and I will be glad because the water in Kewanee is AWFUL! It is not safe to drink; read the 2000 water report; better yet, come try some for yourself! It is yellow, salty tasty and downright disgusting. This city needs to get their priorities in order! I know a lot of people who get tired of having to fill up water jugs day after day to drink good water. Thankfully, where we are moving, there is delicious water that is safe for my children to drink. I can honestly say that I would gladly move back to Kewanee if they would fix their water problems.”.
