OLDíE BILLíS CHIPS

Publishing Date
31 January 2001
Bulletin # 01-02

 

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

a. RETENTION & RECRUITING: What have you done to help unit strength recently? Strength still remains our number one priority and the only area that is effecting readiness. Are you interviewing soldiers before their time to re-enlist? Are you explaining the benefits that they will be giving up? Commanders, have you embedded your recruiting team in your staff. These items must be asked. We are short 1155 soldiers in the Regiment. To me that means that 1155 soldiers that we have assigned will be doing two or more jobs besides their own. Help!

b. UTILITY CONSERVATION: Read any State of Tennessee news and you will see that our budget is in trouble. The ARNG receives our facility maintenance funds from the Stateís Operating Budget. We must all do what we can to conserve energy. The unexpected rise in fuel cost has overridden the State budget. All units will feel this effect. Please, do what you can to help.

c. BCBST: Each unit in the Regiment has been to BCBST before so planning for it is no secret. Staffs need to be prepared and have the correct tools at hand before we arrive. The dates for the event are 4-9 March 2001. Units need to ensure that the correct people attend the event.

d. ANNUAL TRAINING 2001: AT 01 will be here in a few short months. Individual planning must start now. This AT period will be critical to our success during our NTC rotation, as it will be a complete rehearsal. Soldiers should be notifying their employers/teachers of when this training will take place. Excusal from AT will be rare and each request will be carefully examined. This year "other" Annual Training periods will not be considered. Schools will be done in schools status.

e. AWARDS: We donít do a very good job of nominating people for awards in the Regiment. The reasons vary but primarily it constitutes work on someoneís behalf. Leaders need to streamline this program to make it more favorable to accomplish. These awards help STAP points for soldiers and we owe them that. Letís acknowledge our soldiers for the hard work they do.

f. OFFICER CANDIDATE SCHOOL (OCS): This weekend (4 Feb 01), OCS recruiting

program "Platoon Leader XXI" will be held at the Regimental headquarters. We must support this program as we are critical in Lieutenants assigned to the Regiment. We must grow our own as ROTC, FED OCS and transfers are not filling the gap. Those soldiers who meet the educational requirements must be given the opportunity to examine the program.

g. OFFICER & ENLISTED ASSOCIATIONS: It our professional responsibility to belong to the associations that support our efforts on a daily basis. I question the judgement of those who donít. The NGAT conference will be held in Nashville at Music City Sheraton, 23-25 February 01. The Enlisted Association Conference will be held in Knoxville 23-25 March 01. The Regiment is hosting this Conference and I expect a tremendous turnout by Regimental personnel. If you have any questions regarding these associations please donít hesitate to direct them to myself or the Regimental CSM, CSM Pippin!

 

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

First let me say itís good to be back in the Regiment. I have been gone for about 8 years on various tours at NGB but thereís no place like home. Now letís get down to work. First we have got to work on supply accountability and inventory procedures. It is every soldierís responsibility to insure his equipment is secure and accounted for. It is the supply sergeants job to make sure he keeps accountability of his supply room and maintains his hand receipts and finally itís up to the Squadron Supply sergeants to make sure his unit supply sections are maintained. Next letís talk about maintenance across the regiment. It is not the OMS job to maintain your equipment. It is yours. The HUMMV or tank or Bradley belongs to you. It is the responsibility of the unit and the unit maintenance section to do a complete PMCS on each vehicle and report the faults. It is the OMS job to assist in that effort and do what you canít get done. Donít let me find another track vehicle sitting out back at an armory with the track pads worn down past the plates. Thatís your job. The last item this month is strength. We are 50% of the US Armyís Armored Cavalry. If we donít increase our strength we wonít be. The 278th is a fine organization with a proud heritage. With everyoneís help we can fix the strength problems. We potentially have 5000 recruiters and if only 10% of that number would bring in one recruit a year thatís 500 people. We need your help. The recruiters canít do it alone.

 

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

a. STRENGTH: As of 22 January 2001, the Regiment is at 80% required strength.

b. DELINQUENT LINE OF DUTY (LOD) INVESTIGATIONS: This issue has been brought to the attention of the Chief of Staff and the Assistant AG. It is inexcusable that this Regiment has any delinquent LOD investigations. Line of Duty Investigations not submitted in a timely manner can affect soldierís pay, credit rating for unpaid physical bills, and ability to seek treatment for injuries sustained while performing military duty. All commander will investigate the circumstances and insure that necessary actions are taken to correct and submit LODs in a responsible, timely and efficient manner.

c. SUSPENSES: All Commanderís, First Sergeants & Unit Administrative Personnel must insure that all personnel actions are completed by established suspense dates. Request for extensionís need to be made as early as possible. Reminder, QRB packets and Enlisted Promotion Packets (EPP)s, E7 thru E9, are due in Nashville by 15 February 2001. The EPPs board will be conducted in March 2001.

 

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

a. 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.

b. INTEL TRAINING: There are still several training opportunities available for MI soldiers. These opportunities span periods from two weeks to a month or more. These range from live exercise augmentation, SCIF work in Utah, or drug work in South America. Any interested soldier should contact their S2 or contact 1LT Mitch Murray, (865) 594-[3262] / DSN 921-[3262].

c. SEARISC: The SEARISC is conducting S2/ACE Combat Operations courses on the following dates: 18-24 January, 03-14 April, and 21 August - 01 September. The course will be conducted at the RTI Smyrna, TN. POC 1LT Mitch Murray.

d. NTC TRAINING: There are numerous opportunities to learn the intricacies of the NTC; Right-Seat Ride, OC Academy, OPFOR Augmentation, and Rotational Augmentation. The S2 shops need to take full advantage of these opportunities. The 118th eSAB is in need of 98G and 96R OC's for their rotation. This would be a fantastic opportunity to see the NTC operations from the inside. POC MAJ Robert Covert (865) 594-[3234] / DSN 921-[3234].

e. WARRIOR-PHOENIX FIELDING: The Regiment will field this new system at Leavenworth the week prior to the BCBST. Each Squadron will send one intel soldier who will take the class on the new system then stay and use the system during the seminar. POC is 1LT Mitch Murray or AMJ Archer.

 

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

a. AT-01 OPERATIONS ORDER: The AT-01 OPORD will be issued at this Hqs at 271400RMAR01. This will be in conjunction with the Diversity Training.

b. BCBST: The Seminar happens 4-9 Mar 01 at the Leader Development Center in Leavenworth, KS. MOI will be published before this drill.

  1. TRAINING OFFICER/OPERATIONS SERGEANT MEETING: We will have our bi-monthly training meeting at Regimental Hqs at 071000RFEB01.
  2. YEARLY TRAINING BRIEFING: The YTB has been set for 22 Apr 01 with a rehearsal on 21 Apr 01. We are currently looking at doing it in Knoxville. I plan to publish the YTG for 2002 NLT 1 Mar 01.
  3. ASIP FIELDING/TRAINING: The Regiment is receiving 504 ASIP radios in exchange for our SIP SINCGARS and some "A" model SINCGARS. With this fielding comes New Equipment Training (NET) for operators and DS commo mechanics. The Operator NET is a 40-hour course and the DS mechanic NET is an 80-hour course. The training occurs during the period 12 Mar Ė 6 Apr 01. Each affected unit will be allocated seats in the appropriate course. Memo TBP.

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

a. LOGEX: Reference LOI dated 30 Nov 00, FRAGO #1 dated, 05 Jan 01, and FRAGO #2 dated 24 Jan 01. I appreciate the critical comments and suggestions from the field in making this a successful training event. Of particular note, working with the units tasked organized to the Regiment has been a pleasure and learning experience. Our main objective with the LOGEX is reporting and doing the actions necessary to rebuild combat power, personnel and equipment. This will be a learning environment. Please capture your thoughts and ideas on ways to improve how we logistically operate and to improve LOGEX 2002. We will gather those before departure from the exercise.

b. AT-01/NTC LOG COORDINATION MEETING: First Meeting is scheduled on Thursday, 15 Feb 01. Memo TBP for schedule thru Sept 2002. Topics for Feb meeting are BII draw and transport, Maintenance progress and equipment transport, ASL/PLL management and non-demand supported lines plan.

c. AT-01 BII. As stated last month, we will not be drawing any BII from the Ft Stewart MATES. We are coordinating dates in March or April with KY MATES to schedule BII draw. This drill weekend, units must ensure what BII they have on hand at home station, ensure shortages are on order so you can develop KY MATES BII issue requests. Remember, SABER SIX expects each vehicle to have a complete set of BII. Units will transport BII to AT-01, it will not be shipped on tracks. More to follow.

d. ULLS-G: Thanks for the participation in the ULLS-G mid-level managerís course, 13-14 Jan 01. From participant feedback, we know it was a worthwhile exercise and will improve for 2002. Next is the ULLS-G Gunnery/Operator training, 17-18 Feb 01. POC is CPT Grubb, SPT/278, CML (865) 582-3155, TNNET 3155.

Quote of the Month

We all know the importance of battlefield reconnaissance prior to beginning the operation, but just how close should a leader get to the enemy lines for that view? Joseph P. Martin gives us the answer. Yorktown, VA October 1781

 

"Ö.One-third part of all the troops were put in requisition to be employed in opening the trenches. A third part of our sappers and miners were ordered out this night to assist the engineers in laying out the works. It was a very dark and rainy night. However, we repaired to the place and began by following the engineers and laying paths of pine wood end to end upon the line marked out by the officers for the trenches.

We had not proceeded far . . . before the engineers ordered us to desist and remain where we were and be sure not to straggle a foot from the spot while they were absent from us. In a few minutes after their departure, there came a man alone to us, having on a surtout, as we conjectured (it being exceedingly dark), and inquired for the engineers. We now began to be a little jealous of our safety, being alone and without arms and within forty rods of the British trenches. The stranger inquired what troops we were, talked familiarly with us a few minutes, when, being informed which way the officers had gone, he went off in the same direction, after strictly charging us, in case we should be taken prisoners, not to discover to the enemy what troops we were. We were obliged to him for his kind advice, but we considered ourselves as standing in no great need of it. For we knew as well as he did that sappers and miners were allowed no quarters, at least are entitled to none, by laws of warfare and, of course, should take care if taken and the enemy did not find us out, not to betray our own secret.

In a short time, the engineers returned and the aforementioned stranger with them. They discoursed together some time, when by the officers often calling him, "Your Excellency," we discovered that it was General Washington. Had we dared, we might have cautioned him for exposing himself so carelessly to danger at such a time, and doubtless he would have taken it in good part if we had. Ö."

7. SABER REDLEG Ė FIRE SUPPORT (SFC WILLIAMS):

a. OBU 2001: I appreciate everyoneís participation and dedication that was evident during OBU 2001. A major milestone was achieved; digital communication was established and maintained from top to bottom within the Regiment to include the DS and R artillery units for the first time. Each of us learned and identified many training issues and lessons learned during this training event. These issues need to be incorporated into fire support training between now and annual training. Once again I want to congratulate each of you for making OBU 2001 a major fire support training success.

b. LOST ITEMS: On a side note, two (inert) artillery fuses along with a Regimental coin were taken during OBU. These were on loan from private individuals and were used with the FS/coffee display that was located in the 4/278th drill hall. If anyone has any information of these items, contact SFC Paul Williams at (865) 582-3255.

c. LIVE FIRE: The next major training event for the Batteries is the Howitzer Battery Live Fire 27-29 April at Camp Shelby. Ensure that Individual Safety Certification (written and hands on) and Section and Platoon training and certification are complete prior to 27 April.

 

8. SABER DESERT - NTC PROJECT TEAM:

a. NATIONAL TRAINING CENTER (NTC): There is a new opportunity at the NTC called an OPFOR Right Seat Ride. In this program you ride with the OPFOR for three days during a rotation. RTI in Smyrna has combat lifesaver courses available. See your Training Officer for dates. The time to start the NTC specific training requirements is now, see your Training Officer for more details.

b. ARMY ACRONYMS:

AGES = Air Ground Engagement System

CSB = Corps Support Battalion

CSG = Corps Support Group

DTOC = Division Tactical Operations Center

EOC = Emergency Operations Center

 

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

a. I.G. COMPLAINTS: It is imperative that if a soldier has exhausted all avenues of solving a problem within the unit then the next step will be to discuss that problem with the Regimental Command Sergeant Major. If I can not help solve soldier problems then I should not be your RCSM. Make sure the Squadron CSMís are in the soldier solving process.

b. LOGEX 01: All NCOís must stay focused this weekend during the LOGEX. What you practice will be with you through AT- 01 and NTC. CSMís and First Sergeants are the pivotal points for an excellent LOGEX.

c. NCO-ER INFORMATION: As we close calendar year 2000, let us work together to make our NCO-ER an even better prepared more meaningful and accurate document. Focusing on the following areas will make that happen:

(1) Counseling. Tell the soldier what is expected of their performance. Proper counseling precludes surprises and ensures the rated NCOs know where they stand at all times. Enforcement of the Armyís values and standards is both responsible and caring.

(2) Ratings. Now that you have called it like it is, rate them that way. Honest ratings help the soldier and the U. S. Army. In addition, soldiers appreciate honest ratings that are qualitative and quantitative. Preparing justifiable bullets is easy when that are based on the soldierís actual job performance.

(3) Check and recheck. Rated individuals, raters, senior raters and reviewers all have areas they are responsible for to complete, check and recheck and verify. These steps are essential to ensure and accurate depiction of the rated soldier.

d. ENLISTED CONFERENCE: 22-25 March 2001are the dates for the Enlisted Conference. You should know by now that the 278th ACR NCOs and Enlisted are the host this year. The conference will start with a golf tournament on Thursday 22 March, 5K run on Friday 23 March and business meeting and banquet on Saturday 24 March. If you are a complainer about the National Guard then you need to come and join us at the conference.
