Students from the Schiller Elementary School in Salina, Kan., have their picture taken with members of the 1st Bn., 5th FA Regt., 1st Bde., 1st Inf. Div. after receiving an award from Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Kevin West. The school's fifth graders were responsible for collecting more than $11,000 last year so they could purchase 1,050 shoes for Iraqi children. The project was the brainchild of Elizabeth Motter, 11, and her teacher Sara Gault. Motter sent the shoes to her father, border transition team member Master Sgt. Brian Motter, now the first sergeant for Trp. A, 1st Sqdn., 4th Cav. Regt., 4th IBCT.
