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.

A Moment of Silence

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the soldiers and families of the 25th Infantry. Please take a moment of silence for our two fallen soldiers.

Two Fort Richardson paratroopers died and 10 were wounded during an attack on their base in Iraq, U.S. Army officials said Friday.

The paratroopers died Tuesday in what the Army called an indirect fire attack on Forward Operating Base Kalsu. Their names were not released, but Lt. Col. Jonathan Allen, an Army spokesman, said the next of kin had been notified.
One of the wounded paratroopers was reported in serious condition. The soldier was evacuated to a military hospital for treatment.
The remaining nine soldiers were treated at their base.
