7 Combat Service Support Battalion – A Birthday to Remember

Posted by

In my 12 short years in The Army I’ve had my fair share of parades in polyesters and DPCUs; however, today I got to view the parade from a perspective that few people get to, from behind a lens. I was asked if I would like to do some photography for my discharging unit for their 20th birthday parade. How could I say no to that?
