Sonora, CA — Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of Mother Lode residents and Operation MOM, the Honor Roll scroll that was signed on Friday, May 23 at Courthouse Park has arrived at Camp Fallujah in Iraq.
The Honor Scroll was mailed from Sonora Wednesday, June 11. Operation MOM Co-Chair Pat Padavana is hopeful the scroll will be sent to other bases in Iraq. The second scroll has been sent to Afghanistan.
Along with the pictures, Padavana received this note from Captain Shaun W. Doheney, USMC:
The Honor Scroll has safely arrived at Camp Fallujah, Iraq. Attached are some photos that I believe you will enjoy.
My Company First Sergeant and I will find a place where we can display the Honor Scroll for others to read and enjoy.
Thank you, again, for your tremendous support of Headquarters Company, Regimental Combat Team 1 and all those serving here in Iraq. The outpouring of support from the wonderful people of Tuolumne and Calaveras counties is very heartwarming and greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Semper Fidelis and God Bless,
Captain Shaun W. Doheney, USMC, Company Commander, HQCO, RCT-1, Unit 40145, FPO AP 96426-0145
