Durbin, commander of the 1st Infantry Division, out of Fort Riley, Kan., visited the division’s 3rd Brigade on Tuesday, April 15, to recognize and honor volunteers during the brigade’s appreciation day. Durbin and the brigade’s commander, Col. John Spiszer, presented certificates, coins and necklaces, to those who made a concerted difference in the soldiers’ and family members’ quality of life. The ceremony was held at the Engagement Skills Trainer on Fort Hood.

Col. Paul E. Funk II, commander of the 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, and Command Sgt. Maj. Stanley D.
