Dear Blackhawk Soldiers and Families,

I am so proud of the work our Blackhawks have accomplished over the past two weeks to support Operation Allies Welcome. Our Soldiers have provided critical support to many people in the greatest need, and have done so on short notice and over long hours--all in a professional and caring manner in line with our Army Values. I understand that the short notice and high pace of work has made this time more difficult for many of our Families. I personally thank you for your continued support to this mission. While we do not expect to carry out other duties during the Labor Day weekend, many of us will continue to execute this specific mission through the weekend, which may disrupt many Families’ plans. We will work to maximize Soldiers’ available time over the weekend while still meeting mission requirements. Any Soldiers or Families who need additional support, please do not hesitate to reach out through your chain of command and SFRG network.

Thank you for all the work that you do. I am proud to be a Blackhawk!

Courageous and Faithful,

LTC Williams – BLACKHAWK 6

All, through the special efforts of some community folks in El Paso, Texas we are preparing to receive a significant donation of clothing for the displaced Afghans that are arriving to U.S. Army Fort Bliss. We know this is late, but if anyone is available to help us unload the truck into our storage area tonight it would be incredibly helpful. Just reach out to us on messenger and we'll give you the details.

Dakota FST had the opportunity of hosting CDT Logan Zook of West Point Academy. He shadowed 1LT Yang, the Distro Platoon Leader, and got to experience a Brigade gunnery support. During his time here, he experienced both logistics and maneuver operations and shadowed a Scout Platoon Leader. We wish him the best of luck at West Point as he enters his Junior year and success with his studies in Economics! It was an honor hosting CDT Zook.

The Brigade Commander and Command Sergeant Major would like to put out the BDE's stance and response to the current COVID-situation so there is no confusion.

Fort Bliss is currently running low on vaccinations, but that shouldn't stop anyone from getting vaccinated. Should a Soldier or a family member wish to get vaccinated, they can do so off-post for free. If vaccinated, please bring your vaccination card to your unit Medics to ensure that it is tracked accordingly.

If you wish to read up on 1st Armored Division's "Eighth Amended Work Safe, Live Safe" guidance, we shared it last week.
