HHC, 101st STB FAMILY READINESS GROUP (FRG)
Hello, The Soldiers and Officers of the Headquarters and Headquarters Company are doing a great job in everything they do, and I mean everything they do. The Soldiers have spent countless hours in improving their work areas, living conditions, and at the end, they are making it better for the Soldiers and Officers that will replace us in the future. Soldiers have begun building Bhuts or living quarters in Gamberi to assist housing our comrades. HHC Soldiers have been working hard in packing containers with material to build these quarters which would assist in the expansion on forward operating bases (FOB). The goal is to complete 101 containers and we have successfully completed 80 in only two months we only have 20 more to go! We were privileged to have had a few HHC NCOs and Soldiers to be promoted. MSG David Lamb, SFC Mary Perez, SFC Justin Jirkovsky, SSG Christopher Newland, SGT Herbert Hudson, SGT Christopher Hitt, and SPC Anthony Arrington. Congratulation goes out to these deserving NCOs and Soldiers.

B-HUT IN A BOX
The concept of the B-Hut in a box is to provide the building materials to the outlying FOBs located throughout Afghanistan. In each container is the materials needed to construct a single B-Hut, which will consist of eight single rooms inside. The 101st Sustainment Brigade has sent enough materials to FOB Gamberi to construct 10 B-Huts, which will make room for 80 total living spaces for our fellow comrades serving at that location.

The following Soldiers have been involved in this project: SGT James Croghan, SGT Leon Croswell, SGT Eric Highfill, SPC Brandon Russell, PFC Joshua Hillman, PFC Matthew Demitraszek, and PV2 Jordan Brooks.
