    The First Battalion continued its westward advance beyond the front lines to reach its objective where a stream was in front and the sea on the left flank. It then placed into effect it’s long-practiced SOP (Standing Operating Procedure) for jungle perimeter defense. Each of the three rifle companies, supported by one of my machine gun platoons to form the framework of the defense, occupied a third of the circle. I toured the front lines, tying in the fire plans of all automatic weapons so that continuous bands of grazing fire could be interlocked about the perimeter.

  • Oldham no-hits Owen County in region quarters

    Heading into Monday’s region tournament opening game against Owen County, Collins pitcher Paige Oldham had been preparing for this stage.

    The pitcher showed that the hard work and long hours had paid off on Memorial Day, tossing seven innings of no-hit ball, and leading her team past Owen and to the semi-finals of the 8th Region tournament.

    Mattingly tossed all six innings, allowing just three hits to Carroll while striking out seven hitters in the victory.
