“Everybody is going through something whether they show it or not.”

SPC Bird (left) and SPC Orelus (right) of A-2 THAAD shared their thoughts on the importance of suicide prevention and ways we can implement change. SPC Orelus would love to see the Suicide Prevention Program become more personal like the SHARP and EO programs by having Brigade representatives. SPC Bird believes that change can start with conversations and approachability in the barracks, “Under the uniform we’re all just people. Sometimes people just need a little talk to get out of their head and hear that life will be okay.”

This week the priority for the Gunslingers was to conduct leave counselings, update recall rosters, perform high risk review assessments, and Golden Triangle verification. The Battery also conducted a diagnostic ACFT from 28-30JUL. For Swift and Sure day, A-2 conducted AR-670-1, JBCP operator-level tasks, Profiles, Dispatching Procedures, CLS, and POV safety classes. The Battery also celebrated the formation’s newest US citizen, SPC Garcia! Congratulations!

The Soldiers of A-2 THAAD raised $3,151 in support of the Army Emergency Relief 2021 Campaign. LT Bondoc’s initiative was a smashing success for the Gunslinger family as they were able to pie their favorite peers and leaders and participated in a nighttime water balloon fight. We are proud of everyone for contributing to a nonprofit organization with a mission statement to that helps Soldiers in need of financial support.

Today, we sadly said farewell to a phenomenal NCO within our Battery. SGT Azam kept our Motorpool running smoothly, and was never without a smile on his face. His presence will be greatly missed, but his Soldiers, peers, and mentors could not be more excited for what’s to come for him. Best of luck SGT Azam!

A-2 THAAD,

For the past two Fridays, A-2 has dominated the 1-43 ADA BN “R time” competitions. Last Friday was a basketball, knockout style game. No other batteries even came close to our winning record. Yesterday there was an ACFT-themed relay race. We tied with another unit, and the tie breaker was a commander sprint which CPT White won easily. We are looking forward to going 3/3 next week and continuing to show our new Battalion that A-2 doesn’t lose.
