Patently Patriotic Post of the Day (8/25/05)


March 25, 2005

Maj. Hugh Shoults, an operations officer for Task Force Dragon, XVIII Airborne Corps, in Iraq, is the third generation of Shoults to carry this particular bugle into a combat zone. The tradition began with his grandfather, who carried it into battle during World War I. The major’s father and uncle later carried the bugle into battle in World War II and then Vietnam. Shoults, 38, hails from Spokane, Wash. This photo appeared on www.army.mil.
