Happy New Year!
The turn of the New Year is an opportunity both for forward vision and reflection. For many, 2017 has been tumultuous: take a moment to look back, and consider both what you are proud of and what you intend to leave behind. Then, look to the future: set some goals for yourself, and consider how you will achieve them. If you wish, tell your battle buddies -- they can help keep you on track!
As with every year, we have had our ups and downs a unit. The next year is sure to see both triumphs and tribulations. However, know that all echelons of command look enthusiastically into the future; all are confident in our continued success. Let us all work to better the unit in 2018 as we work concurrently to better ourselves.
Once more: congratulations on a 2017 well-fought, and here's to a successful 2018!
