June 15th 2017 – TRG joined soldiers and civilians from the Rock Island Arsenal community for the 242nd Army Birthday Ball. Hosted by the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, the theme this year was “Over there” in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the nation’s entrance into WWI.

RIA personnel participated in the Army’s birthday traditions, including giving toasts, cutting the cake and attaching streamers to the Army flag. Each streamer signified past and present campaigns.

TRG was honored to be able to participate in the evening’s festivities and was proud to be a community sponsor for such a distinguished event.
