Editor in Chief's Note
Hi Everyone, this month, the From The Battlefield staff is proud to bring you yet another issue packed with TAW related information. We are in the process of expanding some pages and developing new ones such as NCOs On Parade. This page will spotlight regular TAW members from PFC to Master Sargeant. This page is built on the In The Scope platform with questions and answers that reflect some of the life of NCOs here in TAW as well as in the real world. We think it is a great way to spotlight parts of our community whose voices aren't heard as often as they should be.
Thanks to everyone for reading and for your feedback. READ ON and enjoy.

At this time, NEWS is looking for TAW members who have the desire to write as freelance reporters, as well as staff reporters. Below is a brief description of both.
This position will let you maintain your present membership within your division. Your submission subject matter ranges from games reviews, tech reviews, or any other subject that is needed for the coming issue. This position is very flexible and for many a perfect way to contribute to the TAW community. If this sounds interesting, then please contact Albenji NEWS DC in TeamSpeak, or email me at Albenji@taw.net for additional information or questions.
This position would require an actual transfer from your present division to the NEWS Division in Operations. This is a full time position which requires experience in journalism, editing, proofing and other related skill sets. NEWS requires the member to be at least 17 years old, and we would like to see 1 year or more of active TAW membership. However, these can be modified for the right person. This person must be able to be flexible and work under pressure when needed, be reliable, and be part of a dedicated team. There are many benefits to being in NEWS, and if you enjoy flexibility, and a small dedicated team, then please contact Albenji NEWS DC in TeamSpeak, or email me at Albenji@taw.net for additional information or questions.

Editor in Chief Letter
It is not often that I boast about the Newsletter or its accomplishments. Most of those who know me will tell you I divert credit to the team and shy away from accolades. But after looking back to 2016, I cannot help but revel in it at least a little bit. When I came to NEWS in September of 2016, we had, from cover to cover, 8-pages and less than 200 readers. Fast forward to April 2017, and From The Battlefield has grown to upwards of 20 pages and 1100 readers a month. Beneath my humbleness, I am so proud of everyone who has contributed to the Newsletter. Special thanks to those 1139 readers who are in a large part responsible for the success of TAW’s Official Newsletter “From the Battlefield”.
The Newsletter's continued success greatly depends on our ability to pull information from our community. NEWS has and has had some great people working to provide the people power and submissions to keep us going month to month. I salute all of you for your hard work and the time you have sacrificed to make deadlines, sometimes under less than optimal circumstances. Going forward, that ability to gather information is more important than ever. We will continue to need members, be they at the Battalion level or Division level, to use this important media source to advance their goals and keep all of TAW informed. NEWS is always in need of articles, freelance reporters, full time staff and anyone else who feels the need to express themselves through the written word.
Someone in TAW once told me to build it consistently, consistently build on its quality, and they will come. You have and we will continue to build on those standards,
Thank you everyone.
