The Sgt. Maj. and I made our way to the chow hall after seeing our AFRICOM Commander General Rodriguez and Command Sergeant Major Bohn off from their visit here. As we sat and ate, we talked about the visit. The conversation drifted to something that the general and command sergeant major had discussed with us many times: our families. It is important that we take time to let our families know just how much we appreciate them and thank them for their support and continued leadership. In our line of work we focus on the mission because it is vital and lives are depending on it, but our families are also a vital part of our support systems.
