|Date: Friday, February 17th, 2012||Return to Archive|
The mission for 6th Squadron, 4th US CAVALRY, 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division in Afghani-stan “was to provide assistance to the afghan Army in the re-establishment of their country while providing assistance and security to the people.” While deployed in Afghanistan, CSM Brownell, flew an American flag for Bea and Melissa. In the picture he is presenting them with the flag that was flown, a certificate and a squadron “Coin of Excellence.” The coin was de-signed by CSM Brownell. It is awarded by the Squadron Commander and CSM Brownell to “warriors who exemplify "excellence." The coin is shaped in the country of Afghanistan with crossed sabers running through it to symbolize our cavalry heritage and it's mission. The front side of the coin bares the distinguished unit insignia with the squadron motto “Prepared and Loyal." The three camps listed to the left of the coin are the three camps that the squad-ron occupied while there. The backside of the coin states Operation Enduring Freedom XI/XII covering the year that CSM Brownell's unit was there.

He is currently working on a Masters in Athletic Administration and Coaching. He will retire from the Army in July 2012.
