OLD’E BILL’S CHIPS

Publishing Date

2 January 2000

Bulletin # 01-01

 

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

a. RETENTION & RECRUITING: The Regiments strength has dropped another percentage point since last month. Strength must be our FOCUS! We can’t train and maintain Readiness without strength. Each unit (Troop/Company/Battery) must have active programs on how they are going to first, maintain strength and then increase their numbers and Commanders and First Sergeants must take the lead!

b. FAMILY READINESS GROUPS: I have asked Ms. Rebecca Covert (spouse of MAJRobert Covert) to be the Senior Command Volunteer Coordinator for the Regiment. She has graciously accepted this challenge. Now, more than ever, family support of our units and their activities are important. I fully realize that some units may not embrace the idea of a structured program however, these programs provides benefits and resources that otherwise would not be available. The most important benefit provided is communications. Each AA units should provide to this Headquarters the name of your Senior Volunteer Coordinator so Ms Covert can start putting this team together. They may be sent to my attention. More information will follow regarding this issue.

c. WARFIGHTING EXERCISE’S: The Regiment has three "warfighting" events in the next three months. Commanders must use these exercises to standardize their operations center procedures and ensure that they have the right "TOC tools" in place. We are making adjustment at this headquarters regarding items such as standardized map boards etc…, Each subordinate Command will be considered when these changes are made. As I had mentioned earlier to Commanders, each unit should be developing some type of plans and exercise vehicle (Plex) van or trailer.

d. RIGHT SEAT RIDES: Over the next two years, the Regiment will have numerous opportunities to participate in "Right Seat Rides" at the National Training Center or with the 3rd ACR at their Pinion Canyon Training Rotation in preparation for their NTC rotation. We need to take advantage of these opportunities. We can structure these events to meet our need in most situations but these opportunities must be utilized by personnel who is going to strategically effect their unit’s war-fighting capabilities. Contact this headquarters for upcoming opportunities.

e. ENLISTED PROMOTION POLICY: Over the past few months several situations has surfaced concerning selection of senior NCOs promotions to leadership positions. In each situation it boiled down to understanding and requirements of EPPs. NCOs must consciously indicate that they want to be considered for leadership positions and so indicate by marking the NGB TN Form 4100-1-R-E. The leadership list allows the Commander flexibility to select from the list. We must make sure that all our NCOs understand this process.

f. INCLEMENT WEATHER: This time of year around the state weather and road conditions vary. One single policy does not work for all unit locations. Severe conditions must exist before drill will be cancelled. Each situation must be considered by the leadership of the unit and approved by this headquarters. Canceling drill constitutes making up the assemblies for the unit at a later dates and in some cases loosing rations that has already been purchased for drill. No one should place himself or herself at high risk to get to drill but this must be considered on a case-by –case basis. We should also posture ourselves to be prepared to respond to state emergencies. We can do this by ensuring that we have updated emergency rosters and having our home station equipment ready to respond.

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

a. STRENGTH: As of 18 December 2000, the Regiment is at 80% required strength.

b. DELINQUENT 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 the amount of delinquent LOD’s listed. All commander will investigate the circumstances and insure that necessary actions are taken to correct and submit these LODs in a responsible, timely and efficient manner.

 

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

a. PERSONNEL SECURITY: At this time, the Defense Security Service (formerly Defense Investigative Service, or DIS) has a backlog of approximately 700,000 background investigations Department of Defense-wide. This has resulted in extreme delays in the investigation process. For this reason, HQ STARC has announced that the Tennessee Army National Guard will commission officers with interim Secret clearances (i.e., those granted at state-level while soldiers await completion of their background investigations).

Additionally, we anticipate the reinstatement by DSS of Secret-level periodic reinves-tigations (PRs). Soldiers holding a Secret security clearance granted before 1990 should prepare a new Standard Form 86 (available on FormFlow) in anticipation of your PR. This will prevent having to rush to assemble a security packet when the call does come for it. Please contact SGT Joe Holloway, RS2 Intel Sergeant, at (865) 594-[3227] / DSN 921-[3227], should you have any questions.

b. INTEL TRAINING: There are 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 CPT Robert Covert (865) 594-[3234] / DSN 921-[3234].

 

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

a. AT-01 OPERATIONS ORDER: Regiment receives the II Corps Operations Order for Annual Training 2001 on Saturday, 6 Jan 01. The Regimental staff will conduct MDMP and issue its OPORD to the Squadrons, Battalions, and Separate Units on 4 Feb 01. Appropriate Warning Orders will be issued this weekend as we accomplish the MDMP.

b. BCBST: The Seminar is scheduled for 4-9 Mar 01 at the Leader Development Center in Leavenworth, KS. A list of required attendees by position will be published ASAP. Additionally, we will be fielding Warrior-Phoenix to the Squadrons and Regimental Hqs during the week of 26 Feb – 2 Mar 01. As soon as we determine who these systems are going to and their intended purpose, we will let you know what the attendee requirements are for this training. As I currently understand the intent of this system and the training, the operators would attend BOTH the training and the seminar. More to follow.

c. COMPANY LEVEL COMMANDERS COURSE: 117th RTI (TMA) will be conducting a 40-hour Company Level Commanders Course (CLCC) in the near future. It is currently projected to be conducted on a Wed-Sun timeframe in April. If you are a current commander and are interested in attending this course, please contact your Squadron Training Officer (Separate Units contact either CPT Brown or CPT Coleman).

 

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

a. FRAGO #1 to LOGEX LOI: FRAGO #1 TO LOGEX LOI, dated 30 Nov 00 will be published by 05 Jan 01. It will include instructions on request for orders.

b. REMINDER: Lateral Transfer Meeting, Thursday, 1000hrs, Regimental Conference Room. Topics of discussion are delinquent lateral transfers, streamlining lateral transfer procedures, excess turn-ins and Regimental "L/T Swap Meet" planning. Attendees are SQDN AO’s, SQDN Supply SGT’s, and Separate Unit Supply SGTs. (Reference 07 Dec 00 e-mail message SAB).

c. WINTER PREPARATION #2: We discussed equipment preparation and on-hand stocks last month. This month lets look at missioning preparation. What is in a vehicle that will take your soldiers on a Tennessee Emergency Response Plan (TERP) mission? Is there at least one five-gallon can of fuel on board? What about blankets or a sleeping bag? Not only to keep our soldiers warm should they become stranded, but to enable them to assist accident victims or those who may need aid they may come upon while performing TERP missions. Are there any MREs on-board? Plan now and be proactive so we are ready to serve our State and communities in their time of need. Review the TERP for proper handling of emergency requests and procedures from local authorities.

d. AT-01 BII. Units must be prepared to bring the BII needed to AT-01. 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. Units must ensure what BII they have on hand at home station and back into what has to be drawn from KY MATES. The RCO expects each vehicle to have a complete set of BII. Units will transport BII to AT-01, it will not be shipped on tracks. Initial plans are to hand receipt a five-ton truck from A/SPT/278 to each Cavalry Troop and Tank Company for additional haul capacity. More to follow.

e. REMINDER: ULLS-G mid-level managers course, 13-14 Jan 01 and ULLS operator training, 17-18 Feb 01. POCs MAJ McCammon and CPT Grubb, SPT/278, CML (865) 582-3155, TNNET 3155.

 

Quote of the Month

History shows us three things in this month’s quote. Always rehearse, never broadcast your intentions to your adversary to soon, and it is always a good idea to have a knife handy.

"…..Ranging across central Tennessee in May and June, Forrest reorganized his forces, but on June 13 he was wounded again, this time by a subordinate. Lieutenant A. W. Gould – who had commanded the guns lost at Day’s Gap and, apparently unjustly, incurred Forrest’s wrath by his handling of others at Franklin – asked to see his commander to protest an order transferring him to another command. The two met at a Masonic hall in Columbia that was being used by the unit’s quartermaster department. An account said to have come secondhand from Forrest himself holds that when Gould asked for an explanation of the order, Forrest said his mind was made up, that he wouldn’t discuss it. Gould protested that the order could be cobstrued as reflecting on his courage, and "no man can accuse me of being a coward and both of us live." Forrest is quoted as saying Gould then tried to draw a pistol from the pocket of a long linen duster he was wearing, but the weapon hung in the cloth and discharged before it cleared the pocket, causing the ball to strike Fofferst in the left side. Forrest happened to be holding a penknife with which he said he had been picking his teeth when Gould arrived. He had it in his left hand when Gould drew the pistol, and grabbed Gould’s pistol hand with his right and forced it upward to deflect further shots. Then, holding the penknife in his left hand and pulling one of its blades open with his teeth, he stabbed Gould in the right side between the ribs. Gould broke free, exited the door, and lurched off up the street…."

Forrest pursued Gould to finish the job, but Gould collapsed and Forrest took no further action. Lt. Gould lingered for two days before expiring.

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

a. Hope everyone had a joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year. Final preparations for OBU should be completed at this time and now it’s time to execute the plan. This is a prime opportunity for all fire supporters within the Regiment to execute and train the tasks and skills needed to ensure that they can deliver all available FS assets in support of the scheme of maneuver.

b. The Howitzer Battery Live Fire (27-29 April) is fast approaching. Ensure that Individual Safety Certification (written and hands on) and Section and Platoon training and certification are complete prior to 27 April.

7. 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

 

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

It is an honor to be selected as the Regiment’s Command Sergeant Major. Just recently I questioned myself on how did I get to this apex of my military career. It took growing up and being mentored in HQS, First Sergeant of HHT Support Squadron, Operations Sergeant, 2/278, Command Sergeant Major, Support Squadron, Command Sergeant Major, 2/278, and now Command Sergeant Major 278th ACR. Moving through the system has been hard which included some blood(BFV), sweat and tears(STAP, SMA). Any soldier can achieve their goals if they take care of the following:

- PHYSICAL CONDITION

- MILITARY BEARING (NEATNESS, CLEANLINESS, and DEMEANOR)

- MILITARY COURTESY

- ATTENTION TO DUTY

- COOPERATION

- INITIATIVE

- FIELD DUTIES

- ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES

- PROMPTNESS

- INSTRUCTING AND TRAINING SOLDIERS

- PRIDE

- LOYALTY

- CHEERFULNESS AND SENSE OF HUMOR

- LEADERSHIP

In summarizing, I have tried to give you my ideas of an average, well-rounded professional NCO. If you are worthy of the stripes and uniform you wear, you will seriously consider these qualifications and take steps to better yourself and your unit.

The Smokey Mountain Chapter of the Enlisted Association is excited to be the host of the 24th Annual Conference. Encourage your soldiers to attend the conference. The events are as follows:

PLACE: Radison Hotel, Knoxville, TN

EVENTS: 22 Mar 01, Thursday: Golf Tournament (Egwani Farms)

23 Mar 01, Friday: CSM’s 5K Run (Tyson Park Running Trail), TAG’s MIXER

24 Mar 01, Saturday: Business Meeting & Banquet

Come and voice your opinion on issues and have a grand time.
