Soldiers from the ARAC’s 1-158th Assault Helicopter Battalion (AHB) based in Conroe, Texas, are responding to the weather disaster in Texas after being requested under the Immediate Response Authority (IRA). The unit has been busy providing water transport support to both the Huntsville (Texas) Memorial Hospital and HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood. Due to the local water boil notice and little to no water pressure reported throughout both areas, the hospitals suffered having very low, if any, running water. With the help of two ‘Water Buffalo’ tank trailers and two LMTVs the Soldiers were able to safely transport several hundred gallons of clean water to a tank for the hospitals to use as the towns worked to restore its water systems.

From Brandy Gonzalez:

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on that Andrea Stokes the wife of Brett Stokes passed away yesterday evening.

She was surrounded by her husband and 3 amazing boys.

She was such an amazing woman and a fighter. Today the light is just a little dimmer in this world without her.

Once arrangements are made then I will post them in here for those that would like to know.

Wishing all of our Ghostriders (old, new, near and far) a very Merry Christmas.

12/25/2020

Ghostriders,

Let me take a moment to tell you, "Merry Christmas," and happy holidays to everyone.

The US Army has had an interesting history, often at war during Christmas time, from the very first moments, General of the Armies Washington taking our ancestors across the Delaware in a daring raid, to today, with our brothers in sisters in arms deployed around the world. I hope you are able to be at home with family during this season.

I'd like to share GEN Patton's prayer from 1944, as the Allies pressed to Liberate Europe:

“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee...Grant us fair weather for battle.”

“Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations.”

As he wrote, I say to you, “I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle...May God’s blessing rest upon each of you on this Christmas Day.”

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, to all yours and your families this season.

THIS IS THE WAY!

Ghostriders,

I wanted to reach out to you to apologize for the cancellation of battle assembly weekend. It is my intent to not jerk Soldiers around as much as possible. With the continuing resolution not signed, I did not want you traveling, or showing up, and not being able to be paid for this weekend. I also did not want to have to give you that news at midnight (the deadline before money shut off).

I will continue to do my best to shield you from rapid changes, but unfortunately, I am not always able to do so. I appreciate your flexibility during the Coronapocalypse and with these unprecedented difficulties this year.

THIS IS THE WAY!

Today we said goodbye to CW3 Dan Powers in a Last Flight ceremony. Mr. Powers was a Commissioned Infantryman who had attended Army Flight School in 1984 prior to the Aviation Branch becoming an official branch of the Army.

Prior to becoming a CW2 in 2014, Mr. Powers was a successful USAR Aviation Colonel for eight years. Over the last five years, Mr. Powers was a UH-60L PIC (Pilot in Command) in Conroe, TX with C Co, 1-158th AVN REGT (AHB).

Mr. Powers was personally commended by the former CAR (Commander of the Army Reserve) LTG Charles Luckey for his flying actions in late August 2017 for saving numerous men and women in the height of Hurricane Harvey from a UH-60L helicopter with 3 other highly impressive crew members.

Mr. Powers retires from the United States Army Reserves today, 2020/11/13, following a successful 37 year career with no breaks in service.

Good Luck to you Mr. Powers, please keep in touch with us. 11/14/2020
