Association Membership Now Searchable
Association members may now access information about other Association
members. Information about members is ONLY available to current members of
the DUSTOFF Association.

Welcome Home, Mountain DUSTOFF
Dan Gower and CW2 John Botto
Braving the “arctic vortex” our Executive Director, Dan Gower, was
finally able to complete his mission of visiting and welcoming home C/3-10
Mountain DUSTOFF in the “frozen tundra” of Fort Drum, NY. Thwarted on three
previous trips due to circumstances beyond our control, this trip was one of
great joy to welcome home the great DUSTOFF Warriors of Mountain DUSTOFF. At
the welcome home party thrown by their company commander, MAJ Chris Logan,
Dan was able to honor the FRG Leaders (Three of the five were in
attendance), two “Difference Makers” and to shake every hand with a DUSTOFF
Association Coin. CW2 Chad Carvalho and SGT Joshua George were given Mike
Novosel Hall of Fame Coins for their excellent work that enabled the
deployment to be successful. Dan was also able to meet CW2 John Botto who
penned a very nice “blog” entitled Medevac Cavemen based upon his initial
tour in a DUSTOFF unit. John has other deployment experience but this was
his first as a DUSTOFFer. It was a fun evening at Maggie’s on the River in
Watertown, NY. Welcome Home, Mountain DUSTOFF. [See
their homecoming video and lots more.]
