Soldier’s Blog: Spc. Cameron Southhall – Multimedia Illustrator

My name is Spc. Cameron Southhall, and I am currently stationed at the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard). I am a Multimedia Illustrator and I work in the Public Affairs shop. This is my first duty assignment and I really enjoy doing my job here. I am very happy that I was selected to join The Old Guard; it is truly an honor because not every Soldier gets to come to this historic ceremonial unit. Here I do a lot of graphic design, but I also contribute to the mission of honoring my fallen comrades.  My mission here is to tell the Soldiers’ stories through graphic design and illustration. I get to show the people what great things Soldiers do, with an illustrated twist. It’s almost like painting a picture. Graphic design is very important to me, because it can take you to a place that you have never been before. When I sit down to design, it’s like my mind takes me to another dimension. And here I get to show the WORLD! Being here gives me a sense of dignity and pride. It makes me push myself harder and harder every day.

    Cameron: Thank you for honoring our fallen heroes. My son Tim was with the 3rd Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart, GA and was killed in action on August 18, 2005 in Samarra, Iraq.
    God bless you always and thank you for your service.

    Spc. Southhall,
    Glad you like your job. You make “The Old Guard” come to life for your FB Friends. I was seperated from the Army 48 years ago this month and the things I learned as a soldier help me every day. I enjoyed your blog. This is a great idea to hear the soldiers own words about their experiences in the Army.
    Thank You,
    Guy Howard

    Excellent work Specialist Southhall. Soldiers do much more than carry a weapon, you are a fine example of that. I love the fact that our Army has evolved to meet the needs of future generations. Your pride comes through in your picture of the Old Guard. Again very well done, be safe out there and thank you for your service to our great country.
