We would like to welcome the new Readiness NCO of Alpha Company 136 ESB, SFC Carlton Collins. We asked SFC Collins some questions to welcome him to the 136 ESB. There is no doubt his role as a senior leader will be invaluable to our entire organization.

“I am committed to my family and my country. I consider myself a family man first. I value taking care of the Soldiers. Their wellbeing has been a top priority ever since I became a NCO. I want to be the NCO who takes care of every Soldier. I want our organization to be strong. Ensuring all Soldiers – enlisted, officers, and warrant officers are taken care of will make our organization great. Take care of the Soldiers and they will take care of the organization. I’m here for them, not for myself.”

“ I want to get Alpha Company up and going. We’re going to make the 136 ESB and the TXARNG proud. I want Alpha company to earn all the banners and awards, too.”

“I come from a military family. I felt a calling to enlist soon after 9/11. I felt there was no better time to do my part, and keep the tradition going.”

“Being able to call myself a Soldier was exciting to me. Being a Soldier for life will be part of my legacy. I will uphold that oath to the Constitution till the very end.”

“Upon first enlisting I was excited, nervous, and had no idea what to expect. No regrets! I wanted to be part of something bigger than myself.”

SGT Andrew Perry, a longtime member of the U.S. Military, is a highly knowledgeable and experienced Soldier within the 136th ESB.

SGT Perry spent the earlier part of his career as an Active Duty Soldier at Fort Gordon, Camp Colbern, and Fort Hood.

Following a break, SGT Perry has been a member of the Texas National Guard for a total of 7 years.

When asked what he values most about himself, SGT Perry noted his willingness to help others. SGT Perry values precision and timeliness when it comes to work ethic. Above all, his dedication to the organization is primarily because of the people he works with. Without them, he says the 3 ½ hour drive to drill may not be worth it.

Family tradition inspires many to serve their country. SGT Perry is no different. His grandfather served in the Army during WWII, and his father served as a Radio Operator in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War.

SGT Perry had excitedly anticipated the opportunity to get out and “experience the world” when he first joined. His first impression varied slightly, leaving him with only one question: “What did I get myself into?” He soon realized it was a decision that would change his life forever.

When SGT Perry is not attending IDT, he spends his time educating Army National Guard and Army Reserve signal Soldiers all over the world.

SGT Robert Soileau served 5 1/2 years Active Duty in the Air Defense Artillery with 5-7 ADA in Germany and was with 3-43 ADA at Ft. Bliss, Texas.

SGT Soileau has been serving in the Louisiana Army National Guard for 4 years; one with the 256 IBCT and three with B Co 136th ESB.

He is MOS qualified as a 25F, 25N, and a 25Q.

SGT Soileau was called upon and served on COVID-19 orders and said “It was very fulfilling supporting the community and the doctors with the medical supplies that they needed.”

His greatest joy as an NCO is training younger Soldiers; "That’s why I stick around".

Goodluck on your deployment y'all! The best unit out there!!!!
The US must bomb anti fire barriers to get fires under control as hurricanes can be disorganised by kind of air pressure bombs and water of floods can redirected this way. Mommy (God) will be sending us rocks to shoot down for practice in the future for we will be discovering deep space with robots. Arms shall be used in the future for this kind of thing, not for killing humans. I am God s messenger.
