JACK KNIGHT!

JACK KNIGHT!

On this day we remember 1LT Jack Knight and his sacrifice in Burma.

Jack L. Knight was born in Garner, Texas, on May 29, 1917. He enlisted in the Texas National Guard, from Mineral Wells in 1940, received his commission in 1944, and was placed in command of F Troop, 124th Cavalry. The 124th Cavalry was based in Brownsville and Fort Ringgold, Texas; its mission was to patrol the Texas/Mexican border. In 1944, the 124th Cavalry joined the 613th Field Artillery to become the 124th Regimental Combat Team (Special). It and other units made up the 5332nd Brigade (Provisional), commonly known as the Mars Task Force, whose mission was to conduct long range penetration operations within the China-India-Burma theatre during World War II.

On February 2, 1945, First Lieutenant Knight, while commanding F Troop, encountered Japanese forces near Lio Kang Ridge, located near the intersection of the Burma and Ledo Roads, near Namhkan, Burma (now Myanmar). During the engagement, Knight destroyed enemy positions and was wounded. Knight’s brother, Curtis, a First Sergeant in the same unit, rushed to his brother’s aid only to be wounded and removed from battle. Jack Knight received further injuries to the face after a grenade explosion yet continued to assault and destroy enemy positions until he was mortally wounded. Knight was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor on June 6, 1945.

8 - 26 JANUARY 1967 - OPERATION CEDAR FALLS - #VietnamWar #Armyhistory

On 8 January 1967, six brigade-size U.S. Army maneuver units - including all three brigades of the 1st infantry Division, 2d Brigade of the 25th Infantry Division, 173d Airborne Brigade and the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment - conducted a large-scale "search and destroy" operation into the Communist stronghold called the "Iron Triangle," just to the northwest of the Republic of [South] Vietnam's capital of Saigon. The target area including training, supply and staging areas for a People's Liberation Armed Forces (PLAF), or Viet Cong (VC), main force division and several local force battalions, plus regional military and political command and control, communications and support units and facilities. After surrounding the area and establishing blocking positions, U.S. forces swept through while South Vietnamese military and police forces evacuated the civilian population from the war zone. When the operation ended on 26 January, U.S. forces had uncovered about one-half million documents with cryptologic codes and intelligence on enemy military forces and political infrastructure; captured 1,000 enemy fighters plus large quantities of weapons, equipment and supplies; and destroyed a regional headquarters complex, over 1,000 bunkers, and hundreds of tunnels and surface structures. Although successful in those regards, the enemy avoided engaging in combat that may have resulted in their destruction, which resulted in only a temporary Allied advantage.

DID YOU KNOW

Operation CEDAR FALLS was one of the U.S. Army's largest single ground combat operation of the Vietnam War.

U.S. Army maneuver forces in the operation included infantry, mechanized, airborne and armored units.

The soldiers who volunteered to search enemy tunnels, later called "Tunnel Rats," were first used in Operation CEDAR FALLS.

1st Battalion (Airborne) 143rd Infantry Regiment

Last week, two of our Paratroopers from A Co, 1-143 IN (A) were involved in a serious accident in Huntsville, TX. It is with deep sadness that we report SPC Shelton Benitez died from his injuries. PFC Hernandez is recovering in the Warrior Transition Battalion, with a long road ahead.

Our Battalion and the entire Texas National Guard family is mourning the loss of Shelton and honor all that he accomplished. Shelton dedicated two years of his life to serving as a Paratrooper with the 1-143 Infantry (Airborne). He took great pride in his service and had an unwavering love for his family, his country, and his Paratrooper brothers and sisters. He served as a rifleman in 2nd PLT, A Co., where he consistently performed to the high standard of the Battalion. He graduated Basic Training on 21 November 2018 and earned his Airborne Wings on 14 December 2018.

Both Paratroopers families remain in our thoughts, and we ask that you pray for them during this difficult time. We also remind service members that chaplains and mental health specialists are available at any hour of the day to provide spiritual guidance and grief counseling. Details on funeral services will be posted as they become available.

Rest in Peace, Shelton. You will be missed by all of us and will always be a member of the Herd.

Today marks the U.S. Army's 244th birthday. "The U.S. Army was founded on June 14, 1775, when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year. The 14 June date is when Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in The Committee of the Whole."

As an important note, at this time in 1775, the national guard militiamen of the colonies had mustered 20,000 Soldiers and trapped the British in Boston for two months. This lineage of citizen Soldiers who rush towards danger to defend their countrymen continues unbroken to the Troopers of C Troop, 1-124 Cavalry. Golpeo Rapidamente!

Yesterday Combat Troop recognized select Troopers with impact awards earned throughout the MFO deployment. Each of these Soldiers were recommended by their peers or superiors for going above and beyond in their everyday tasks. Each of their efforts increased the reputation of the Soldiers assigned to the Troop, or directly enabled our ability to execute our mission! Outstanding work!

Combat Troop had the privilege of hosting the first iteration of the 1st Squadron, 124th Cavalry Regiment Spur Ride this past weekend, while deployed with Task Force Sinai in support of the Multinational Force & Observers mission!

35 candidates started the event and were tested in a standards-based environment over two days. These shavetails represented the National Army of Colombia, the Australian Army (specifically 2nd Cavalry Regiment), members of Combat Troop, HHT 1st Squadron, 124th Cavalry Regiment, and Active Component members of the Medical Company. At the end, 17 candidates met the standard and were inducted into the Order of the Spur!

Candidates “cashed in” to the Spur Ride by completing a physical fitness assessment, and were broken into multinational squads for testing in lane training exercises. After settling into a patrol base, the candidates completed a ruck march for time, and reorganized into a platoon to conduct an assault on Knight’s Hill, in remembrance of the Regiment’s attack near Hpa-Pen, Burma in February, 1945.

Congratulations on your stellar performance and to the supporting troops that helped execute a phenomenal event!
