Troop Support...

Shark River Inlet



Members of the Point Pleasant Rescue Dive Team have their photo taken with a special American flag before conducting a training dive at Shark River Inlet. This flag recently did a short tour in Baghdad Iraq with Ssgt. Harman of the "Four-One Element" of the 654th MP company serving in the war on terrorism. It was sent to Herb to have photos taken with his squad and returned to the volunteers of the "From Our Hearts" program that send weekly packages to troops in Iraq & Afghanistan. At this time the volunteers are sending out 160+ packages a week to the troops... http://fromrhearts.blogspot.com/2006/07/valley-packages-are-there.html

Since the flag has returned it has been photographed with numerous people who wish to send their greetings and thoughts to the troops back in a photo with the same flag. At the Augusta County Fair in Virginia photos with this flag included the Lt. Governor Bill Bolling, Congressman Bob Goodlatte, Delegate Steve Landes, and many people attending the fair...

I am fortunate to know both Ssgt. Herb Harman and the members of the Point Pleasant Rescue Dive Team. Herb is doing an outstanding job with his squad in Iraq fighting the war on terrorism and working with the people of Iraq to rebuild their country. The Dive team is a very important part of the Point Pleasant community and their dedication is yet another form of dedication to what makes this country great...

Couldn't help but smile when I checked in on this site and saw "the flag." This worldwide traveler is getting around!

You're right; everyone working together helps make this country great. And a big part of that is volunteers so, even though I don't live in NJ, we have volunteers here who help the community in many ways. Thanks for what you do.

This photo will be a nice addition to the package that I send the "Four-One element" squad in about a week or so. The guys do appreciate the effort and support from badck home...
