Infantry Rifle Company of 110 Soldiers Patches

Infantry Rifle Company of 110 Soldiers

The/Studio: Introduce yourself. Tell our readers a little bit about who you are!

Randall:  I am First Sergeant (1SG) Barker of Charlie Company 2-16 Infantry out of Fort Riley Kansas, serving in Kenya

The/Studio: First of all  thank you for your service. Tell us about your division.

Randall: We are a Infantry Rifle Company of 110 Soldiers. We are Company C of 2-16 Infantry Battalion, 1St Infantry Division which also has A, B, D, F and Headquarters Company. The rest of the Battalion is in Djibouti, our Company is in Kenya. We have been here since June and leave in February.

The/Studio: What have you learned since joining the military?

Randall: HAHA Too much to list

The/Studio: HAHA… Good answer! What are you most proud of?

Randall: All of the outstanding training we conducted in preparation of our deployment.

The/Studio: You have a lot you can be proud of! You protect our country and our freedom! What are some of the greatest challenges you face?

Randall: Due to the draw down in the size of the Army, our unit is deactivating. We have to prepare the entire unit to transfer to other posts.

The/Studio: Where do you see your division in 10 years?

Randall: HAHAHA Gone.

 The/Studio: I am sorry, that wasn’t a good question hahaha.  What type of legacy do you want to leave?

Randall: Developed junior leaders with the right leadership attributes to succeed and excel in other units.

The/Studio: That’s wonderful! What is the story behind the custom patch that you produced with The/Studio?

Randall: Every Rifle Company has a shield, crest, symbol etc. Ours was a Spartan shield, with a Spartan Helmet in the center with two crossed spears behind. Since being in Kenya, we modified it to a African shield with a baboon skull in the center and two crossed African spears behind. We inserted it on the 1st Infantry Division patch.

The/Studio: That sounds like an awesome design! How are you going to use these custom patches?

Randall: Give them out to the Soldiers in the Company for a parting gift.

The/Studio: That’s very thoughtful!

Thank you Randall for sharing your story with us and most importantly for serving our country. We respect and honor your division.
