Soldiers, Families, Civilians, and Friends of the 214th Fires Brigade,

Command Sergeant Major Aaron and I wish everyone a healthy and joyous holiday season and send thanks to everyone for their continued service and commitment to our nation. As we celebrate, let us all keep in mind the Soldiers, civilians and families whose continuous dedication keep our Army strong and our country safe. I truly appreciate the sacrifices you make every day.

To the Soldiers of 1-14 Field Artillery currently deployed to the United Arab Emirates - you are in our thoughts and prayers each day, and especially during this holiday season while you are separated from your loved ones. The holiday season will come a little late for you this year, but we all look forward to your homecoming in just a few short weeks. You are all true patriots, serving your nation in this time of need. Thank you for answering your country's call.

Commanding this incredible brigade with so many outstanding Soldiers, civilians, and families is a true honor. The CSM and I could not be more proud of who you are and what you have accomplished this past year, and cannot wait to see what we can achieve together in the year to come. Whether you are celebrating this season overseas or at home, please be safe and remain vigilant. Thank you for all you do as a treasured member of the Leaders Brigade. .


Colonel Andrew D. Preston
