I want to thank everyone again for coming to the battalion drill. I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout. The weather couldn’t have been more brutal. We had cold, rain, sleet, hail, snow and wind gusts of 70 m.p.h.

Nobody left and even more troops started coming in. I want you all to know, no one could be more proud of a group of men.

I thought the battalion drill went well. More importantly, I hope all of you learned, had fun, and left satisfied with the event.

Our next event is back at Hartford City May 13, 14, 15. This is an IG max effort event. We will be reenacting the battle of First Manassas. We can start setting up as early as Thursday. I will personally be on site Thursday. Don’t forget we have school days on Friday. More information to follow.

Yours in Service
Col. Danny Linkous
Independent Guard Battalion
