Our very own CFS veterans include Coach Slater, Coach Rudd and member Romel Cuellar, who’s US flag is hung above our whiteboard.  This flag was flown over Operation Anaconda, beginning in the dead of night on March 2nd, 2002 in the Shahi-Kot Valley and Arma Mountains in the Paktia Province.  This was the first large scale battle in the US War in Afghanistan and was the first operation to involve a large number of US conventional (non-special ops) forces participating in direct combat activities.  US forces suffered 80 casualties in Operation Anaconda, with 8 killed and 72 wounded.    

Less than 1% of the American public defends our freedom. The flag of America still stands strong, firm and beautiful. Thanks to the enormous efforts and innumerable sacrifices made by our veterans. We salute them in honor. Happy Veteran’s Day.
