SMT Spain/Portugal – Update #1

Olá, When we first arrived in Portugal, we were greeted by Lt. Colonels Davissons and some delegates from the Lisbon Corps. Though we were only able to have a brief moment of greeting with Lisbon before we left for the Colares Corps, it was clear that the people we will be meeting in Portugal are…
