Bravo Company Misfits under the command of Company Commander First Lieutenant Doug Lipnitz and First Platoon Leader OCS Matthew Carter, First Platoon First Squad Jesters will push towards active recruitment within Insurgency Sandstorm.

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a game of team-based tactics and objective-oriented gameplay complete with player versus player, competitive matchmaking and co-operative game modes versus AI. Your soldier’s appearance, weapons, attachments, armor, and equipment are all up to you.

Prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack vehicles, destructive artillery, and unprecedented audio design putting the fear back into the genre. Death comes fast, ammunition must be carefully managed, and the environment must be tactically navigated at every step toward victory.

    Commander's Message: Thanksgiving Safety Briefing

    Soldiers, The weather has gotten colder, and the days shorter. The leaves have changed and fallen from their branches. For us, late November is more than a seasonal change: It is a time for spending with Family and Friends Many, however, are not so fortunate as to spend time with their Families. This Thanksgiving Day, I ask each of you to remember the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen separated from their loved ones and pray for their safe return. Their sacrifice makes it possible for others to know freedom from oppression and fear and instills hope for the future. For the Families with loved ones deployed, the holiday can be challenging. Thanksgiving is about Family and our community is a Family. I think it is worth taking a moment to express some gratitude and reflect on this day, which was set aside by our Nation to reflect and be grateful for the freedom, and opportunity we have here. As John F. Kennedy said, “We must find the time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” Wherever you are, if you are at home, with family, traveling, or just enjoying something you take pleasure and find peace in, Command Staff and I wish you the very best this thanksgiving and are grateful for all you do serving without our unit! And of course "If you drive don't drink, if you drink don't drive and if you drink, don't drink alone!" - Battleboar 6

    New Website Launch

    Welcome to our new home soldiers! Well over a year in the making and developing of this beautiful state of the art website, we present to you the next phase in the 3rd Infantry Division Realism Unit. With complements of a newly developed PERSCOM system, new uniforms/signatures, and all the bells and whistles for an easy navigational forums layout. Huge shout out to all those involved in the development, design and transfer of data to our new home. Captain Arthur Cantu and his small team of dedicated soldiers have really outdone themselves! Quick history lesson - We launched and operated on our prior website version for since September 2014 ( over 4 years), since then we have conducted eight (8) operations as a unit, RRO has accepted 2,110 soldiers into the unit (just shy of 3,000 total applications), FIG has conducted 453 Basic/ Advanced training course and CID has completed 4,085 uniform updates in that same time period. There are not many words to describe those numbers above besides "Outstanding" and "Dedicated". Literally thousands of soldiers and leaders are responsible for the success we have had since that launch! Lets kick the tires, check the gauges, and get behind the wheel of our new site in the coming days, make it your own and be proud that you're a Dog Faced Soldier!
  6. Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend. DST ends Sunday, Nov. 4, so you should set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. The change officially comes at 2 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in November. DST started March 11, 2018. It will restart on March 10, 2019. Sunday’s change means sunrise and sunset will be about one hour earlier on Nov. 4 than it was the day before, meaning there will be more daylight in the morning hours. Unsure if the your state or country you live in observes DTS? Check here.

    Thanksgiving Day

    Thanksgiving Thanksgiving, which occurs on the fourth Thursday in November, is based on the colonial Pilgrims' 1621 harvest meal. The holiday continues to be a day for Americans to gather for a day of feasting, football and family.
