This team.

Last week, after twenty months in command, I handed the guidon back.

They offered me the best lesson I have received as a leader.

A leader’s job is to create opportunity.

Individual opportunity.

Organizational opportunity.

The opportunity to care.

By allowing me to experiment, fail, and joyously telling me when I was wrong; they led me more than I led them.

I am so proud of the team we built, and the opportunity that we created as a result of your drive to suffer, fail, fall, learn, try again, and get 1% better each time.

Blackhawks.

Experts Only.

The Blackhawks recently completed 3 weeks of Mountain Warfare training at Camp Ethan Allen and Smuggler’s Notch (Smuggs). Thank you to the 86th IN Brigade for getting our leaders trained and making this training a reality. Thank you to the Army Mountain Warfare School for equipping the Company and letting us train in your AO.

While there we experienced over 1.5 feet of fresh snow in week 1, wildly changing weather, and negative double digit real feel temperatures.

These are some of the favorite pictures from these weeks. The Blackhawks are ready. They are putting the Mountain back into the 10th Mountain Division.

Today the Blackhawks put their skills to the test and competed to make it into the top ski ability groups.

Then the best skiers learned to ski with a casualty. Many successes, and falls later they made it down. 🤣

The day was the worst kind of cold; cold and wet. When we put our gloves back on, they were stiff.

Frozen stiff.

The morning had been spent burrowing uphill through feet of fresh snow. It was hard, tiring work.

Weather moved in. The precipitation was melting as it hit us. Soaking through the Army issued layers. Then the temperature dropped.

It could have been bad. Yet there were all smiles.

The Blackhawks are putting the Mountain back in 10th Mountain.

2-87, Blackhawk Co, conducted Team Live Fire in conjunction with Advanced Rifle Marksmanship last week at Range 22. Teams were assessed over 3 days of training through a dry, blank, and live progression. After successfully being certified as teams, soldiers spent time training Advanced Rifle Marksmanship, rehearsing mag drills, “ready ups”, movement while shooting, “fighting up” and “fighting down”, and covering fire under movement. This rigorous ARM training came courtesy of CSM Terenas’s training he administered with Blackhawk Co Senior NCO’s. This training culminated with a 13 mile ruck out of the training area, back to the BN Footprint. Overall soldiers were able to practice shooting and moving, and working with their teams over numerous repetitions.

2-87, Blackhawk Co, conducted an “Agoge Competition”. The competition was inspired by the rigorous Spartan Agoge Training, and created to test the Squad Leaders on their Phyical, Tactical, and Technical abilities! The Agoge incorporated the ACFT event, a medical lane, a communications lane, and finally weapons manipulation and machine gun theory, all while Rucking to each event. Total distance traveled was 6.5 miles between all events!

Blackhawk Co Squad Leaders have shown their willingness and determination to always strive to be better leaders for their soldiers and themselves in order to maintain physical, tactical, and technical readiness!

Former soldier returns to Fort Drum, remembers fallen friend

Yesterday Blackhawk Company had the honor of hosting CPT (ret.) Jake Murphy who served as Executive Officer in B Co during the 2011 deployment. CPT Murphy was wounded in action during the deployment but has continued to serve as an inspiration not just to Wounded Warriors but current and past service members alike.

A former Fort Drum solider who lost both legs in Afghanistan is back visiting post. He wants to make sure one of his fallen friends is being is being remembered.

Last week, the first "Battle of the Blackhawks" was conducted. It is a boxing match that has each Platoon put their best fighters into the ring to see who comes out victorious. 2nd Platoon swept all their fights and took 1st. It was an aggressive event and we look forward to the next one. Thank you to our friends at 10th Mountain Division Light Fighters School for helping to make this event possible. Blackhawks!
