Huntsville Havoc hosts Marine enlistment ceremony on the ice

HUNTSVILLE, AL – The first period ended, 12 players skated off the ice, and 15 young men walked quickly out into the bright ice rink as the crowd continued to cheer. The Huntsville Havoc honored the men and women who have served, and are still serving, our country during their first Military Night of the season on December 28, 2020.

The Huntsville Havoc are a professional ice hockey team in the Southern Professional Hockey League. They play their home games at the Von Braun Center in downtown Huntsville, Alabama.

The night began with Soldiers rappelling onto the ice before a local high school JROTC color guard presented the colors during the national anthem.

Instead of heading to the locker rooms after the end of the first period, both teams stayed near their benches. Staff Sgt. Brianna Pate, a Marine recruiter for Recruiting Substation (RSS) Huntsville, led 12 poolees and three Marines onto the ice.

“It was an honor to march out the poolees and new Marines onto the ice,” said Pate. “When Lt. Gen. Thurgood asked the poolees to raise their right hand, I could visibly see the chills it gave them to take the oath in front of the cheering crowd.”

Army Lt. Gen. Neil Thurgood gave the oath of enlistment at the center of the ice of the Von Braun Center Monday evening. Thurgood is the Director for Hypersonics, Directed Energy, Space and Rapid Acquisition, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology), at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

After the ceremony, the general greeted the three Marines who were home on recruiter’s assistance through the holidays.

“In high school I went to football, basketball and baseball games but I’ve never been to a hockey game,” said Pfc. Travis Coble. “It was shocking at my first hockey game that I stood in front of hundreds of people in the middle of the rink.”

Coble graduated from Hazel Green High School in 2014. He joined the Marines as a military occupation specialty 0331 Machine Gunner. Coble returned to his hometown on recruiter’s assistance through Christmas and New Year’s.

“I’m proud to see my Marines make the time to be involved in their community,” said Gunnery Sgt. Ronald Hawsey, RSS Huntsville station commander and Tennessee native, originally from Franklin. “Staff Sgt. Pate coordinated this amazing opportunity to recognize the future Marines in their hometown.”

Hawsey previously served as the station commander for RSS Chattanooga in 2018.

Marine recruiters work toward giving individuals the same opportunity they took when joining the Marine Corps. Pate grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She graduated from Paul W. Bryant High School in 2013. Pate explained, “I’m excited to be back home to help people reach their goal. Roll Tide!”

Please share Desert Storm Veterans.... Information for Desert Storm Veterans 90-91. The GWIRP focuses on funding innovative, competitively peer-reviewed research to (1) provide a better understanding of the pathobiology underlying GWI, (2) identify objective markers (biomarkers) for improved diagnosis, and (3) to develop treatments for the complex of GWI symptoms and their underlying causes. Our Vision is to make a significant impact on GWI and improve the health and lives of affected Veterans and their families Please all get to reading so you understand what is going on....Vision - Improved health and lives of Veterans who have Gulf War Illness The Gulf War Illness Research Program (GWIRP) was initiated in 2006 to provide support for research of exceptional scientific merit to study the health effects of deployment on U.S. Warfighters during the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War. The GWIRP challenges the scientific community to design high-impact research that will improve the health and lives of Veterans who have Gulf War illness (GWI). GWI is characterized by multiple, diverse symptoms that typically include chronic headache, widespread pain, cognitive difficulties, debilitating fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, respiratory symptoms, sleep problems, and other abnormalities that could not be explained by established medical diagnoses or standard laboratory tests. The population of Veterans affected by GWI is a subset of the nearly 700,000 U.S. Warfighters who served during the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Studies indicate that approximately 25-32% of Gulf War Veterans continue to experience symptoms associated with their deployment. The GWIRP focuses on funding innovative, competitively peer-reviewed research to (1) provide a better understanding of the pathobiology underlying GWI, (2) identify objective markers (biomarkers) for improved diagnosis, and (3) to develop treatments for the complex of GWI symptoms and their underlying causes. Our Vision is to make a significant impact on GWI and improve the health and lives of affected Veterans and their families https://cdmrp.army.mil/funding/pa/FY19-GWIRP-RAA.pdf…https://cdmrp.army.mil/gwirp/pdfs/GWIRP_Landscape.pdfhttps://cdmrp.army.mil/gw…/pdfs/GWIRP%20Strategic%20Plan.pdfhttps://cdmrp.army.mil/gwirp/pbks/gwirppbk2018.pdf *********************** Priority URGENT please all of you Desert Storm veterans this is urgent....please call and go thru phone screening to get in the study!

Thank you to my friends and family for making the trip. Thank you Javonna, Christian, and Harper; my life has meaning because of you. Thank you to everyone who helped get me from the yellow footprints to yesterday. My heart is heavy tonight and I will miss my brothers and sisters more than my face has ever shown.
