Now on duty in Iraq, they are teaming a lot about rebuilding as much of the war-torn country as possible. Specialist First Class Steve Ostaff (front row, kneeling, at far nght), a Tanner resident, comments, "We have the worst of the summer over with the heat and dust storms." That makes working in the desert's sand a lot easier, we editors suspect. Here are some of the Gilmer County soldiers who want to say, "Hello," to their families and friends back home: (front row, I-r, kneeling) Sgt. Tom Egbert, SPC Sharon Youngs, SSG Pete McCune, and SFC Steve Ostaff; (second row, I-r, standing) SSG Gerry Shackleford, Sgt. Terry Lamb, SPC John Dennison, SSG Larry Gregory, SPC Scott Hacker, SPC Billy Boone, and SPC Josh Cottrell. Other local soldiers not pictured (but also wanting to send along their greetings to Gilmer County) are as follows: Gregory Shackleford, Tim King, Zack King, Brandon Gerwig, Charles Smell, Aaron Gerwig, Bnan Norman, Kevin Leady, and Tom Tanner. Because of their efforts to rebuild schools, public buildings, and infrastructure in Iraq -- a dangerous place to be under any circumstances, these soldiers of Company B, 1092 Engineering Unit richly deserve our newspapees "Folks Who Shine" Award for bravery, industry, intelligence, hard work and humanitarianism in the face of adversity.
