    Lt. Col. Sean Cusker has walked in the boots of both an enlisted Soldier and an officer. With duty on both sides of the spectrum, he brings a unique point of view to his new assignment as commander of the 832nd Ordnance Battalion. Yet, no matter how he looks at it, building physically fit, confident, moral and highly skilled Soldiers ready to answer their nation's call is the top priority of Cusker's command team. "We want to be successful in making sure the Soldiers who come through here become a positive contributing member of their organization from the first day they arrive at their first job assignment," Cusker said. "They need to understand the technical and tactical side of the house when they leave here. They also need to understand the operational Army. "We have a vested interest to make sure these Soldiers adhere to the Army culture and know what it takes to be a successful Soldier."

John Sheldon, who is from Pittsburgh, Pa., had not intended to join the Army; he certainly did not intend to become a public affairs specialist, and he did not intend to follow in his grandfathers footsteps. But that's exactly what he has done-in his own way. ....Sheldon's grandfather was Walter, or Walt, Sheldon. ....."He is best known for his nonfiction work-it started with detective novels to pay the bills," John said. "(His writings were) first hand, non-fiction accounts and interviews of the occupation of Japan, and history of Vietnam, the history of the Korea war, and other biographical and U.S. military history books. (His best known work) is the 'The Honorable Conquerors' and it is also the most referenced book about the occupation of Japan." Other non-fiction work includes "Tigers in the Rice" 1969, "Hell or High Water" 1968, and "Tour of Duty" 1959.
