Updated 18-Sep: Welcome to the Schriefer Blog, my name is Tavis Schriefer. Recently, my wife Jill and I raised money to supply driFIRE shirts to every soldier in Apache Company of the 1-501st Parachute Infantry Regiment. We were successful in raising over $6500 and we would like to thank everyone for all their support to make this happen.

Spoke with Nick tonight

Nick called tonight from his cell phone he smuggled back to basic training after Xmas holiday. I asked him if he was hiding in a closet or footlocker - he said he was hiding in the corner, but to get a signal he was hanging his head outside the window overlooking the Drill Sergeant's parking lot (yep, he's stealthy). He sent me a SMS message to my phone a couple days ago saying he was already homesick. He now says that things are better and he's getting back in the swing of things. He also snuck one of Jon's cold weather undershirts and was wearing it the other day - everyone there was saying "that's nice, where did you get it". We spoke for about 10 minutes before he had to go (someone was coming). He asked for letters to start coming again, so here is his address in case anyone doesn't have it...

Pvt Nicholas Schriefer
FCO 1st BN, 19 INF
