Field of Honor at ASOM

LTC. Marcus Wright, Battalion Commander of the 1-505, Sgt Maj Andrew Bristow, CSM of the 1-505 PIR, Cpt. David Ken, D company 1-505, and First Sgt. Carlos Campos, D company 1-505, stand near CSM Donovan E. Watts' flag on the Field of Honor. CSM Watts was killed in action in Iraq on November 21, 2006. 1st. Sgt. Campos had this to say about CSM Watts: I was working for the Brigade Command Sgt. Major at the time, and he wore glasses and he lost a little screw in his glass, and so me and the Com Sgt Maj are looking for this little screw, and he (Watts) walked in, and he started looking for it with us, and course, he’s a CSM but he always brought himself to our level. He was the only CSM I ever had who made his rounds around the full battalion, all the companies, talked to all the soldiers, found out what was going on with them and their concerns. He made it his daily mission to do that. Whenever we saw him we lit up, someone was coming around to talk to us, to see what we were doing today, the training we were doing. He was very down to earth.
