The NU Club of Union III-Baghdad conducted its inaugural meeting in January with a strong showing of deployed alumni. The Norwich cohort members are part of the Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command, i.e. the “Warfighter” of Operation Inherent Resolve. It was “serendipitous,” says Army Maj. Mike Barnett ’90, that Army Lt. Gen. Michael Shields ’84, director of the Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Organization, also happened to be present, and was able to “join the club for a commemorative photo and sharing of our collective Norwich experiences.”
