Patrick and Rita Lovell

Company A 3/9 1989/91 Sinai

     The photo to the right is my last dining out as a Manchu, with my beautiful wife, Rita. It was a great evening with the entire Battalion in attendance, the Liscum Bowl, great food, just a fantastic night.

     The 3rd Battalion served as the United States Battalion Task Force in the Multinational Forces and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai Desert. The MFO was formed as a result of the Camp David Accords and the subsequent Treaty of Peace in 1979 between Egypt and Israel. Task Force 3/9's mission was to observe and report activity in its assigned sector for possible violations of the Treaty of Peace or Protocol.
