For the troops - Around the Arch
December 2009 Issue
Georgia Bulldogs wore stickers on their helmets honoring the Georgia-based 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team during their game against South Carolina in September. The 1-inch by 1.5-inch sticker was a replica of the combat team’s shoulder sleeve insignia. The 48th IBCT is comprised of about 3,000 Georgians and is currently deployed in Afghanistan with the mission of training and mentoring the Afghan Army and Police. The brigade, which is part of the Georgia National Guard, is headquartered out of Macon, with subordinate battalions based in Calhoun, Forsyth, Griffin, Savannah, Statesboro and Winder. Additional company level units are from smaller towns throughout the state. The 48th IBCT soldiers who have been killed in action are: 1st Sgt. John D. Blair; Maj. Kevin M. Jenerette; Sgt. 1st Class John C. Beale; Sgt. Brock H. Chavers; Sgt. Issac L. Johnson Jr.; Sgt. Jeffery W. Jordon; and Sgt. Raymundo P. Morales.
