A Battery, 3rd Air Defense Artillery

A Battery, 3rd Air Defense Artillery The official page of Alpha Battery, 3rd Air Defense Artillery Regiment. Command Team Welcome

Welcome to the Army’s first Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) stationed in Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), Maryland and congratulations on your assignment to Alpha Battery “Guardians!”.

Our battery was activated on 1 June 2010 under 2nd Battalion, 6th Air Defense Artillery at Fort Sill, OK.

1SG Hillburn and I share a very simple leadership philosophy - everything we do is about the Mission, Soldiers, and Families. Soldiers are the centerpiece of everything we do. We cannot be successful without trained, combat ready Soldiers and the Families that support them. At Alpha Battery

What an eventful closeout! Kicking it off with a SSG Sprague reenlistment for six more years! Followed by CPL Sola's promotion, a huge accomplishment to her induction to the NCO Corps! Also had the chance to award the St Barbara award to SFC Phillips. Unfortunately, we did have to farewell SFC Phillips, SSG Yazzie and SGT Coryea. These NCOs truly exemplified the meaning of being the backbone in the unit. Thank you all for your contributions to the Guardian Eagle team. And to all, have a great weekend!
