Phillies Fans in Iraq

By Sgt. First Class John GonzalezMarch 24, 2009

CAMP SLAYER, IRAQ - Being hundreds of miles away did not deter these die-hard Philadelphia Phillies fans from having one of Camp Slayer's streets re-named to honor their team. First Sergeant David M. Bernosky, with the 304th Civil Affairs Brigade, helped coordinate the project to boost moral for the Philadelphia based unit and to remind everyone in the Baghdad region who won the World Series. This Army Reserve brigade, composed of warrior -citizen Soldiers from the Philadelphia area, are part of the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C.
