    For the more than 1,100 participants attending the Jackal Stone 10 exercise, the first day rigors of deployment were significantly reduced. Upon arrival, coalition members were quickly in-processed, bussed to their barracks and treated to a hot meal at the dining facility. Later that night, they were able to clean up in one of the many portable showers and crawl into a bed complete with blankets and linen placed neatly on top. All of this was made possible by four U.S. Army Soldiers who worked aggressively behind the scenes, without fanfare or hope of recognition - they were just doing their job. Making it their personal goal to ensure delivery of the basic necessities military personnel often take for granted, Maj. Jeyanthan Jeyasingam, Sgt. 1st Class Jerry L. Dysick and Staff Sgt. Derrick L. Reynolds from the 643rd Contingency Contracting Team out of Grafenwoehr, Germany and Staff Sgt. Carlet A. Clark, of the 411th Contracting Support Brigade out of Camp Humphreys, Korea, dealt directly with Polish and Lithuanian vendors to make sure the exercise ran smoothly.
