OLD’E BILL’S CHIPS

Publishing Date
5 April 2001
Bulletin # 01-04

 

1. SABER 6 – REGIMENTAL COMMANDER (COL HASTON):

    1. Retention and Recruiting: The Support Squadron had an excellent event last month focusing on employer support and recruiting. During this event in Oneida, they obtained over 40 leads. The total unit was behind this effort as was their leadership. This is what made a difference. Each unit must consider tactics such as this. The Regiment lost soldiers again last month. We must reverse these trends. Develop your own tactics.
    2. Conditional Releases: Each week I receive numerous request for conditional releases. They are for many reasons but most seem to come from the subordinate unit requesting approval with little substantiating information, only Commanders concurrence. That seems to be the easy thing to do. I want all of these request thoroughly researched at the TRP/CO/BTRY level and then at the Squadron level before they get here. Convincing information should be enclosed. Soldiers have a responsibility to the TNARNG. We have no responsibility to the active component to release soldiers for any reason. The only "good" reason that I have reviewed lately is a soldier moving for civilian employment and joining the ARNG in another state. This is serious business!
    3. Alternate Annual Training: Request for alternate AT period are now beginning to reach their peak. I am not inclined to release soldiers from this AT period, as this is our final rehearsal for our NTC rotation. This AT is next to the most important AT period that we have ever had. We will train as if we are at the NTC and due to our already short ranks, excusal from AT will create more of a hardship on soldiers who will be attending. This year schools are not priority, collective training is! Schools are being resourced through school funds. They will not impact a soldier’s ability to do both. We need every person at FT Stewart. Training periods should be viewed at each level before blanket approval is given. Does this need more explanation?
    4. Equipment for Annual Training: I hope that all units have started looking at their equipment for AT 01, wheeled vehicles in particular as we will be driving them to FT Stewart. Cleanliness, serviceability and complete sets are critical to success. PMCS must be performed on all systems. Start this IDT period! Since this is a rehearsal for the NTC, we must take all equipment. NBC, minefield marking, all weapons cleaning system etc.., Don’t forget the little stuff. We must ensure that we have load plans for all equipment (in writing) and that we practice loading and transporting people and equipment that we will have at the NTC.
    5. Individual Training: Do you have a qualified "Combat Life Saver" in each crew? What about drivers licenses? NVG Training? Defensive driving? Environmental training? Unexploded ordance training. These are just a few of the required training that will be required at the NTC. We are 15 months away from our rotation. We have been tracking unit status’s in these areas. It doesn’t look good. Commanders, take an interest and lets get started on this training.
    6. Command Post: Are your TOCs ready to do business? The Regimental Headquarters will be building four Map boards for each Squadron. We WILL start using standard drops. A SOP for drops will be issued from this Headquarters. Having the correct tools at hand is important. The MDMP process is difficult at best and we must have the tools gathered to be successful.
    7. Enlisted Conference: I want to thank the Smokey Mountain Chapter of the enlisted association for the tremendous job they did hosting the Enlisted Conference. This is a very important part of our National Guard and I strongly encouraged membership and participation. Thanks for a job well done.
    8. National Guard Association of Tennessee: The National Conference will be held this year in Indianapolis, Indiana. In order to get more Junior Officer participation, the Association has agreed to pay $500.00 toward registration and lodging for one (1) WO1-CW3 or 01-03 from the 278th ACR to attend. I will make the selection. Interested individual should send me a note expressing their desire. I will notify the selected This should be a great conference.

 

2. SABER 5 – REGIMENTAL EXECUTIVE OFFICER (LTC BELEW):

a. Retention and Recruiting: Each day request for conditional releases and request to be released from Annual Training. These request must be screened very carefully by the units prior to being submitted to Regiment. The hard decisions must be made by those in command to tell the soldiers that we must have their participation in the prime training events that will assist us at the NTC. Our soldiers made a commitment to us when they enlisted in the TNARNG and we must remind them of that obligation.

b. Maintenance: Annual Training is 6 days away. By the time most of you read this it will be 4 days or less away. Our equipment has not gotten any newer and most has probably been ignored since the last summer. The tracks have had the luxury of an intense effort from the OMS to insure it’s serviceability and performance but not so with the wheeled fleet. Get your operators and leadership out in the motor pool today and start doing complete PMCS on your wheeled vehicles.

c. Supply: Supply accountability is a command issue. It is not the supply sergeant’s job to go out and get people to make them do inventories and check their equipment. It is the commander’s job to give his people time and place to have their equipment and do complete inventories and serviceability checks.

d. BCBST: The BCBST seminar at FT Leavenworth was a great success. This training event gave our staffs an excellent opportunity to prepare for the War Fighter in June and then Annual Training in July. We repeated some of our mistakes corrected many things that have plagued us in the past. Most units had the correct "professional" tools in place and in sufficient quantities to conduct the seminar. Make sure that you pack and take what you need to the War Fighter and then to Annual Training. Plan for the mission and work towards getting the necessary supplies now!

d. TACSOP: The Regimental TACSOP has been completed and we tested parts of it at the Seminar! Everyone is to use this document as we conduct the War Fighter and AT. Use a careful and a critical eye because this is what we are going to fight with at the NTC. Additions may be made but nothing taken away. Read the document and understand it. It must be used, studied, taught and exercised.

e. Family Readiness: Where does your unit stand on forming its family readiness group. These groups are invaluable when it comes to information sharing. Each unit should have a basic framework of support. All units should consolidate their subordinate unit’s coordinators and provide this information to this headquarters (CPT Sharp). A Family Readiness Booklet will be published soon and sent to every soldier. This booklet must be filled out and used by our young soldiers to ease the burden of family separation during the AT period. If assistance is required in organizing a family readiness team, it can be coordinated through CPT Sharp.

f. Enlisted Association: I want to personally thank all that participated in this year’s ENGAT conference. The Regiment was represented well on all committees and events. The Support Squadron did an excellent job in supporting the conference and was one of best ever ENGAT conferences.

3. SABER 1 - PERSONNEL & ADMIN OFFICER (MAJ JONES):

    1. SGLI Change:
      1. Effective 1 April 2001 maximum coverage under SGLI will increase from $200,000 to $250,000.
      2. The law requires that all individuals be changed to the maximum on that date. On 1 April 2001, all members eligible for SGLI will automatically be insured for the maximum coverage of $250,000. The cost for the maximum coverage is $20.00.
      3. Should a member of the uniformed services desire less than the automatic maximum coverage, that member should complete SGLV form 8286 (April 2001 version) indicating the amount of coverage desired (including no coverage) and furnish it to his/her unit. Units should forward elections as expeditiously as possible to avoid the necessity for corrections in financial transactions. The rates of collection effective 1 April 2001 will remain $.80 per $10,000 of coverage. Any member who does not make a reduced or declined coverage during April 2001 will be charged for the full $250,000 of coverage for April, as well as for any other month in which the level of coverage remains in effect.
      4. The SGLV election (reduced coverage or declined coverage) must be completed no earlier that 1 April 2001 and no later than 30 April 2001 in order to receive an appropriate refund for the amount deducted for April 2001.
    2. Morale, Welfare, Recreation Fund: Keep in mind that if you request a T.V, VCR or anything over one hundred and fifty dollars that you will use after the event, be sure to put it on your books.

 

4. SABER 2 - INTELLIGENCE & SECURITY OFFICER (MAJ NALLS):

  1. PERSONNEL SECURITY: All personnel who are scheduled for periodic reinvestigations in the next six months should begin the paperwork now. If you are inside this window and have not begun the SF-86 you are severely behind. Clearance determinations are still taking six to nine months to complete.
  2. SEARISC: The SEARISC is conducting S2/ACE Combat Operations courses 21August - 01 September. The course will be conducted at the RTI Smyrna, TN. POC 1LT Mitch Murray.
  3. AT OPFOR Vehicles: The OPFOR vehicles this AT will be similar to last year. The 4th CAV BDE will publish a country study book the first week of May. It will be distributed then. If you have a copy of last year’s country study book it will be close to what the Regiment can expect this year.
  4. New Fielding: The Regiment will field the Common Ground Station Mar 02. This is a great piece of equipment for battlefield visualization. It is the downlink from JSTARS, UAV, and GUARDRAIL. This is not the limit of its capabilities but only the highest profile. The system requires 6 x 96H and 2 x 33W, which are not on the MTOE yet. The 96H course is 32 weeks. Therefore we need to begin recruiting these soldiers now.
  5. Message from MAJ Nalls: I am leaving the Regiment after the April drill to take a position with the 100th Division teaching in the Command and General Staff Course. I have enjoyed my time with the Regiment and wish the Regiment the best in its future endeavors.

5. SABER 3 – OPERATIONS OFFICER (MAJ ARCHER):

    1. AT-01 OPERATIONS ORDER: The AT-01 OPORD will be completed and issued NLT 8 Apr 01. I have already received some RFI’s based on WARNO #3. We will try our best to answer these in the OPORD.
    2. YEARLY TRAINING BRIEFING: The YTB is still set for 22 Apr 01 with a rehearsal on 21 Apr 01. It will be conducted at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Knoxville. See the MOI from LTC Belew dtd 22 Feb 01.
    3. SINCGARS STATUS: We have completed the Total Package Fielding of the ASIP radios. An interesting statistic was discovered during the exchange of our SINCGARS for the ASIPs. Six percent of the SINCGARS radios turned-in were not mission capable (NMC). That means that, statistically, another 60-70 radios in the regiment are NMC. Is one of them YOURS?
    4. NTC PERSONNEL STATUS SPREADSHEET. The spreadsheets that were just submitted are still not being checked for quality. We cannot rely on the information that most units are submitting (See COL Haston’s comments). Start preparing now for a Trp/Co/Btry Commander/RNCO briefing on your unit’s individual training status to SABER 6, 5, or 3. WE MUST HAVE CORRECT INFORMATION.
    5. COMBINED ARMS REHEARSALS. The Regiment will conduct two Combined Arms Rehearsals (CAR) on 5 May 01. Both will be conducted at the Regimental Headquarters. The RWFX rehearsal will begin at 0900 and the AT-01 (REHAT) rehearsal will begin at 1300. I realize that rehearsing 2 different operations on 2 different terrain boards in 1 day may be confusing, but we have no other time available. MOI TBP.

6. SABER 4 - LOGISTICS OFFICER (MAJ HENSLEY):

1. AT-01/NTC Log Coordination Meetings: Next meeting scheduled is Wed, 18 Apr 01 at 1000hrs. Topics for Mar meeting are weapons magazine inventories, BII draw and transport, maintenance progress and equipment transport, ASL/PLL management and non-demand supported lines plan.

2. Food Service Sanitation Course. 20-21 Apr 01. LOI TBP NLT 05Apr01. There are 2 classes, 25 students per class, fifty personnel total. Lodging and course location are at Wyndham Hotel. Ensure your personnel state they are with the TNARNG group when making reservations.

3. GSA Mileage. Units must call in GSA mileage on the Monday of the last full week of each month. POC is MSG Lewis, TNNET 3240.

4. HHT 278 – CSMS will conduct a weapons inspection on Monday, 09 Apr 01. Staff sections must endure their MTOE weapons are cleaned this drill weekend. HHT Commander or representative will brief arrangements details at Saturday, 07 Apr 01 staff brief-in.

5. SCUMF. The request to move separate units to the RS-4 as approving official (PCAO) is uprange. I expect 01 May 01 as the change date. Separate Units must forward monthly administrative requirements ML 0726, etc.) to this office NLT 15th of each month. Squadrons must forward their SCUMF information to Regt HQs NLT 20th of each month.

 Quote of the Month

Sacrifice. What does it really mean in doing our duty for our nation? Alll of us will face some personal sacrifices in serving our State and Nation. We can only imagine and probably move towards it, but hopefully really never know total sacrifice.

"….Dear Sir:

I have four brothers and two buddies from my Motorcycle club. I talked them into going into the U.S. Navy for the U.S.A. As a bunch, there is nobody that can beat us…I had four years training in the Navy and four in the National Guards. My brother had four years in the Navy and a couple years military training. Otherwise, any one of our brothers, which there are five of us and our two buddies, would like to stick together. We would appreciate it very much if you could, if possible, keep us together…I know I can make a first class team out of them.

__ G.T. Sullivan, formerly USS Hovey

******************************************

February 1, 1943

Dear Mr. And Mrs. Sullivan:

The knowledge that five gallant sons are missing in action against the enemy inspires me to write you this personal message. I realize full well there is little I can say to assuage your grief.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I want you to know that the entire nation shares in your sorrow. I offer you the gratitude of our country. We who remain to carry on the fight will maintain the courageous spirit, in the knowledge that such sacrifice is not in vain.

The Navy Department has informed me of the expressed desire of your sons, George Thomas, Francis Henry, Joseph Eugene, Madison Abel, and Albert Leo, to serve in the same ship. I am sure that we all take heart in the knowledge that they fought side by side. As one of your sons wrote, ‘We will make a team together that can’t be beat.’ It is this spirit which in end must triumph.I send you my deepest sympathy in your hour of trial and pray that in Almighty God you will find the comfort and help that only He can bring.

 

Very sincerely yours,

Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

Mr. And Mrs. T. F. Sullivan,

98 Adams Street,

Waterloo, Iowa.…."

7. SABER SQUELCH – SIGNAL OFFICER (MAJ JESTRAB)

All units must update STU-III key's (1-800-635-6301). Each unit is to provide their STU-III number to the COMSEC Chief (Mr. Newsom). Each unit is to report Success or Failure to Regimental Headquarters by Apr IDT to the attention of RSIGO/COMSEC Chief and to S-2 Lt Murray.

All units are required to maintain currency with the SINCGARS Radios using ANCD loads, PLGR time (ZULU), and Frequency Hopping. Include training on OTAR's. Units provide e-mail address for Mr. Newsom ([email protected]) so that DDT manual's can be e-mailed to them.

All units to verify their MSRT's are maintained, proper antenna's in hand, and fully functional, the MSRT's will be utilized during our AT period.

All units that have organic Retrans systems are to maintain these systems such that they are fully operational including all OE-254 antenna cables and parts. In order to facilitate dual net capability, squadron’s Retrans vehicles need to obtain additional Class 9 radio mounting racks, antennas, interwiring cabling etc. and have these installed prior to AT. Stock numbers can be obtained from RSIGO if needed.

Units to maintain current ANCD fills, lately some units have not updated to the current loads. New GPS codes need to be obtained from Regt.

Prepare now for the June Warfighter, SIGO’s verify all GRA-39’s, PLGRs, ANCDs, and all support batteries are fully operational. Plan on using your HMMWV’s that have dual radio’s installed to limit the size of the HMMWV park. In support of III Corps we will be tasked to provide additional radios, DNVTs, HMMWV’S, GRA-39s and cabling to, tasking to be published.

 

8. SABER REDLEG – FIRE SUPPORT (SFC WILLIAMS):

The Camp Shelby Live Fire exercise is our next major training event (27-29 April) for the Howitzer Batteries. Commanders must ensure that Individual Safety Certification (written and hands on) for gun chiefs, platoon leaders/sergeants and fire direction officer/NCO’s has been completed and that that all equipment and manuals necessary to conduct this live fire exercise is packed/loaded and brought to Camp Shelby. The major objective of this live fire exercise is to certify and qualify individual howitzer sections and Platoon Operation Centers on Artillery Tables 7 (Section Certification) and Table 8 (Section Qualification) in preparation for Platoon/Battery qualification during AT.

The Squadrons Fire Support Teams will receive training on observed fire techniques and procedures during the live fire exercise. The fire support teams will also support the howitzer batteries and mortars.

Let’s ensure that we have a safe and injury free training event while completing section certification/qualification and observer training.

 

9. SABER DESERT – NTC PROJECT TEAM:

The NTC team has distributed several items to the Squadron Training Officers and Readiness NCOs for Separate units (one for every troop and det). They are: two videotapes (UXO, Fratricide, Pyrotechnics, media on the battlefield, and NVG Drivers Training); Risk Management POI; Combat Lifesaver POI; Defensive Driver Test; HAZMAT Driver training (HM-126F); and a special training CD (environmental training, HAZCOM, Defensive Driver Training, and Civilians on the Battlefield). If you do not have these items see your Training Officer. 3/278 has 67 soldiers enrolled in Combat Lifesaver for 3rd QTR FY 01, GREAT JOB KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Future training events are: three Risk Management Train the Trainer courses, Airload Planner and Rail load training. The names for each units Family Readiness Group (FRG) Coordinator and the military POC are due NLT 13 APR 01. The FRGs are critical to our success at the NTC, due everything you can to encourage these groups.

  1. SABER 7- COMMAND SERGEANT MAJOR (CSM PIPPIN):

PROMOTION BOARDS: The promotion board panels for this year’s EPPS were completed on 1 April 01. I must continue to refresh your memories on how to complete a NCOER for your soldiers. As you know, the NCOER will either help or hinder an individual’s career. All Noncommissioned Officers, Sergeant through Sergeant Major, deserve an evaluation report that is correct and on time. Some reports are still arriving late and with incorrect information. I challenge you to get involved, conduct the monitoring, provide the appropriate training and treat all reports as if they were your own. The NCO-ER is clearly the most important document for the promotion panels in evaluating the soldier. It appeared that the more senior the rater, the more inadequate the justification. (subjective bullets that cannot be measured are difficult to evaluate). An example is the rater who gives all successes and the senior rater (sr) who gives 1/1 without any comments on promotion potential. NCO-ER blocks need to be better justified. The panels found many reports having four or five excellence blocks checked but only had two or maybe three justified. The reviewer then fails to resolve the difference. The panels cannot translate this message and the soldier may suffer. Raters and senior raters should not use repetitive bullets year after year on the same NCO. Straightforward quantified excellence comments from the rater and senior rater about performance and potential were valuable in determining the best qualified for selection. Sometimes the NCO-ER reflected "promote with or ahead" and "among the best", but the file contained a Letter of Reprimand for the same period of time. It is imperative to follow the required counseling rules, set standards and objectives each rating period. This will help to remove any questions as to what information will be placed on the NCO-ER.

 

11. A Word From Brigadier General Hargett

  1. The Tennessee Army National Guard has a new benefit for our soldiers. It is the Tennessee Army National Guard Civilian Employment Assistant Program (TNCEAP).
  2. This program is designed to assist Tennessee Army National Guard soldiers in finding employment or enhancing their current civilian occupational opportunities.
  3. Working in a partnership with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, we currently use computer employer matching, job referrals and placement, and in the near future, job fairs at our armories.
  4. We, in this office are committed to assisting Guard members find employment. We know that if one of our soldiers is unemployed for a long period of time his or her effectiveness in the Guard is greatly diminished. The chance of losing a guard member is increased if that individual is unemployed and unable to support his/her family.
  5. The Tennessee Army National Guard already demonstrates compassion to the personal affairs and needs of its soldiers through educational assistance, PX and commissary privileges, health and dental care and the Family Assistance Program. It just makes sense to address the single most important thing in our soldier’s lives, their jobs and the ability to meet the financial needs of their families.
  6. For further information regarding this new program, the Point of Contact is CPT Alisa Watts at 615-313-3108 or DSN 683-3108.
