September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. As the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps partners with the REACH program, we are kicking off the #ReachOne campaign: Look within your circle of influence to reach out to others who seem to need an encouraging word and perhaps, some assistance finding resources for more help. If each of us gets in the habit of regularly reaching out to someone in need, we can begin to turn the tide.

Please take up the prayer challenge with the following focus areas:

• Sept. 1-6: Regular Army Soldiers
• Sept. 7-13: Army National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers
• Sept. 14-20: Army Family members
• Sept. 21-27: America’s Veterans

Today, the Cobra Strike For Life family bid farewell to CSM Arthur Jones and welcomed CSM Albert Fletcher during the 1-43 ADA Change of Responsibility ceremony. As Cobra 7, CSM Jones displayed enormous dedication to both Soldiers and the mission and truly leaves a legacy through his leadership example. We wish him the best as he moves on in his career! CSM Fletcher has big shoes to fill, but is more than ready to take 1-43 ADA to new heights. He is no stranger to the Cobra family, as he was our Operations Sergeant Major during this last deployment, and has already made a significant impact on the unit. #CSFL

R-Day on January 31 consisted of the two promotions of CPL Dewy and CPL Young to the rank of SGT. We also had guest speaker Mr. Jordan speak to the Cobra Strike For Life family about good decision making and the dangers of abusing alcohol. The healthy competition this past Friday consisted of a relay with various ACFT activities. 3 Soldiers, 1 NCO and the 1SG of each unit competed through the rigorous obstacle course for the fastest time. A-2 THAAD and Alpha batteries tied, leading to a tie breaker in which both battery commanders raced in a 200 meter sprint. Congratulations to A-2 THAAD for winning the R-Time events for the second week in a row!

*If any Soldiers in 1-43 ADA have acting skills and would like to volunteer to be in the Fort Bliss play titled “The Introduction” please see your chain of command for more information.*

Upcoming in the Cobra Strike Battalion is Second Chance: A Resiliency Play. Second Chance is a play that raises awareness by providing Soldiers, leaders, and the community a visual of how risk factors can spiral out of control and lead to suicide, along with its impacts on family and those around you. It raises awareness on the necessity of Ask, Care, Escort, because there is always a second chance in life even when we don't make the right choices. #CSFL
