Members of the Vietnam Vets and Legacy Vets motorcycle clubs congratulated Army Recruiter Staff Sgt. Daryl Fatula, center, after he took the oath of re-enlistment Thursday morning from Maj. Ronald Jones, right, on the steps of the Capitol. The Pennsylvania native enlisted in the Army in 1996 and has served in Bosnia, Iraq, Germany and at a number of stateside posts. For the last 18 months Fatula was a recruiter in Reno. He leaves Nevada in May and will resume his Army job as an Apache mechanic at Fort Carson, Colo. “Soldiers are the ones that defend freedom of speech and I figured this was the most appropriate place to re-enlist,” said Fatula.
