Warriors with 210th Field Artillery Brigade celebrated the Legend of Saint Barbara at the U.S. Field Artillery Association Saint Barbara's Day Ball at Lotte World Hotel in Seoul, South Korea, Feb. 22, 2019.

Select service-members were also welcomed into the Honorable Order of Saint Barbara, a prestigious award for selfless-service, outstanding competence, and high standards of integrity in the promotion of field artillery. 

Our Second2None commanding general, Maj. Gen. D. Scott McKean, 2IDRUCD along with Col. John Mountford, 210th FAB commander, and 210th FAB Command Sgt. Maj. Erick Macher, were also welcomed into an even less common order known as the Ancient Order of Saint Barbara, for their long-term, exceptional service to artillery.

Deputy Commanding General--Maneuver for 2ID, Brig. Gen. Stephen Maranian, was the guest speaker for the event.

"This is a great night, a great event, and I'm sincerely honored to be asked to celebrate our patron saint--Saint Barbara. But more than that, to celebrate the camaraderie, pride, espirit de corps of this amazing Brigade, and of the Artillerymen and women here on Pen."

"It's your love and support that enables us to do what we do."
