This week the Crusaders focused on training with crew served weapons that not only included basic functions checks, but also how to properly mount the weapons on vehicles ahead of convoys.

Crusader of the Week: 2 January 2022

CPL Jacob Hanson
Duty Position: 14E(Patriot Fire Control Enhanced Operator)

CPL Hanson was able to serve as the backbone of the battery during Rear D choosing to volunteer for multiple CQ shifts in order to aid other barracks personnel. On more than one occasion, he opted to relieve others so that they were able to enjoy the festive time with their visiting family members. When CPL Hanson wasn’t on shift, he utilized the dietary skills that assisted him with getting off ABCP to provide meals to personnel who worked CQ shifts during the holidays. The fact that CPL Hanson is so keen on ensuring the welfare of others, has always made him an asset to our unit. He pinned Corporal during holiday block leave, but his actions as an NCO were present well before he wore the rank.

The Crusaders began it’s New Year by promoting two individuals who truly embody what it means to provide selfless service to a unit. SGT Carnes was promoted to SSG, and SPC McClinton was promoted to SGT. Both SSG Carnes and SGT McClinton have been extremely impactful and we look forward to see what’s next for them as they continue to strengthen the Crusader Battery. Join us in congratulating our NCOs!

Crusader of the Week: 12 December 2021

SPC Roger Hernandez
Duty Position: 14H (Army Air Defense Enhanced Early Warning System Operator)

SPC Hernandez continues to prove his worth as our resident strong man. Last week, he not only displayed his overall physical fitness when he scored a 535 during the ACFT portion of the Soldier of the Quarter competition, but he also supported his overall Soldier skills as he won entire competition. SPC Hernandez’s choice to represent our Battery 48 hours prior to the start of competition proves that he is always prepared to do what is necessary in order to be victorious. When he isn’t occupied with crushing the competition physically, SPC Hernandez’s tactical expertise causes him to be of service to his fellow 14Hs supporting them through training, and aiding Fire Control Platoon as a whole as we continue to groom our newest junior Soldiers.

Although SGT Adams was our orderly room NCOIC, he wore many hats during his time with Charlie Battery and because of that we are forever grateful for his efforts to ensure that we were always well taken care of. Yesterday we had the opportunity to show our gratitude by presenting SGT Adams with a token of our appreciation as he prepares to end his Army career. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to the Crusaders, and good luck SGT Adams!

Crusader of the Week: 5 December 2021

SGT Matthew Maxwell
Duty Position: 14E (Patriot Fire Control Enhanced Operator/Maintainer)

SGT Maxwell’s contributions to the Crusaders have been vital to our unit’s training regimen. He worked tirelessly to create the new Battery Master Gunnery Book hoping to aid our young soldiers as we prepare for Roving Sands and other future field operations. That same work ethic has caused him to rely on his experiences at his previous unit to better assist our Fire Control Platoon within the RT3 lab. SGT Maxwell doesn’t shy away from work or opportunities that will ultimately benefit the Battery. Not only did he recently volunteer to become our barracks manager, but he also volunteered to represent the unit as our NCO in the NCO of the quarter competition. SGT Maxwell refuses to be complacent and the result of that is him currently preparing himself for the Pre PMG-Course.

Crusader of the Week: 28 November 2021

PVT Logan Williamson
Duty Position: 14T (Patriot Launching Station Enhanced Operator/Maintainer)

PVT Williamson continues to standout as he approaches his 4th week within the Warrior BN. Since his arrival to the Crusaders, he has taken opportunity to gain both mentorship and tutelage from his peers as they groom him ahead of upcoming key events such as Roving Sands. PVT Williamson has proven to be a team player opting to take a battle buddy’s shift as the BN Staff Duty runner on Thanksgiving, so that they didn’t have to miss out on spending time with visiting family members. So far, PVT Williamson embodies all that we expect of our junior soldiers. He arrived at his first unit physically fit scoring a 493 on his ACFT, and he exercised his marksmanship skills qualifying on the .50 cal without having any previous experience with the weapon.

In the Army, readiness is the No. 1 priority. Soldiers train vigorously to always be ready to deploy in support of the nation's defense. This week, the Crusaders conducted training inside of the CBRN chamber allowing them to test their protective gas masks, and learn CBRN Warrior skills tasks.

Yesterday, the recently certified food handlers of the Crusader Battery led a Friendsgiving in conjunction with a holiday safety course as we prepare to travel for Thanksgiving next week. SPC Leo Watson and his wife helped introduce the Battery to his native culture by preparing traditional Jamaican dishes.

Earlier this week, our soldiers had an opportunity to step outside of their comfort zones and train on basic soldier skills virtually. During their visit to the installation simulation center, the Crusaders performed convoy scenarios and land navigation. The training allowed our soldiers to maneuver on terrain that replicates any terrain in the world.
