September 19, 2009
The expression on Sgt. Jonathan Vassell's face tells it all as he congratualtes Twyon Martin of UConn after the Huskies defeated Baylor 30-22 Saturday evening. Vassell,of Windsor, is one of about 75 men and women that were invited out onto Floyd Casey Stadium to have a group photo taken with the team before they had off the Balad, Iraq, in two weeks. Vassell and his platoon are for the Connecticut National Guard's 118th MMB Unit stationed at Fort Hood in Texas. This will be Vassell's third tour of duty.
