McLaughlin passed the garrison colors during a May 10 change of command ceremony on Founders Field. The symbolic passing solidified McLaughlin’s departure and welcomed Col. David Grosso as Fort Carson’s newest garrison commander. “The garrison commander is an invaluable and essential part of our team. It’s an extremely complex and demanding position,” said Maj. Gen. Joseph Anderson, commanding general, 4th Infantry Division and Fort Carson. Anderson thanked McLaughlin for his three years of service as the garrison commander, but assured the community they were receiving an equally qualified leader in Grosso. “Dave is a combat-tested and proven leader,” Anderson said. “I have the utmost confidence that Dave will take charge with ease and give 110-percent effort in order to provide the same level of care and support that our Soldiers and Families have become accustomed to.” Previously the deputy commander of the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Carson, Grosso said he was looking forward to working with the Fort Carson and Pikes Peak community to continue meeting the needs of Soldiers and their Families. “Any success I’ve ever experienced came about because of the Soldiers I’ve served with,” said Grosso during his first address to the Fort Carson community. “We have been given much here at Fort Carson,” he said. “Fort Carson and Colorado Springs can continue to expect much from the U.S.Col.

10 MOUNTAINEER — May 18, 2012Top tankerscompete in Story and photos by Staff Sgt. Christopher Jelle 3rd Brigade Combat Team PublicSullivan Cup Affairs Office, 4th Infantry Division FORT BENNING, Ga. — Fifteen four-man tank crews from armor units spanning the globe competed in the inaugural U.S. Army Sullivan Cup competition at Fort Benning, Ga., May 7-10. Two armor crew teams representing the 4th Infantry Division and Fort Carson entered the contest to vie for the honor to be the first of the Army’s best tankers. The armor community intends to fashion the Sullivan Cup after other prestigious Army competitions, such as Best Ranger and Best Sapper, to test armor Soldiers’ mental and physical strength and stamina, said Lt. Col. Mike Bramblett, commander, 1st Squadron, 16th Cavalry Regiment, 316th Cavalry Brigade, out of Fort Benning. “Where these other competitions are mainly on an individual, or at best, a buddy-team basis, the Sullivan Cup is a competition between crews,” Bramblett said. “It’s the crew interactions that make this as competitive as it is, just as it’s the crew that makes the tank as lethal as it is.” The competition will also motivate armor Soldiers to return their focus to core skills and training after more than a decade of unconventional warfare, he said. During counterinsurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, many armor troops spent deployments conducting foot patrols, rarely setting foot inside a tank. “I think it’s great for the Army,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jason Mayfield, a competitor from 2nd Battalion,A tank crew assigned to Company D, 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th 7th Infantry Reg., 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Inf.Infantry Division, prepare to engage pop-up targets with pistols on a small-arms range during the Sullivan Div., out of Fort Stewart, Ga. “It’s tankers going back toCup competition, May 9 at Fort Benning, Ga. doing tanker stuff.” Dr. Debbie Roubal DDS, P.C. “We have one simple goal – to make every person who walks through our door a patient for life” 830 Tenderfoot Hill Rd., Suite 250 (719) 636-1933 www.springsteeth.com

12 MOUNTAINEER — May 18, 2012 Cavalry By Andrea Sutherland Mountaineer staff In the muck and mud near Range 40, platoons battled. They fought not for awards or recognition, but for practice. “I guess there were bragging rights for platoons ‘winning,’” said Lt. Col. Geoff Norman, commander, 7th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. “This was training.” For the “Buffalo” Soldiers of the 7th Sqdn., 10th Cav. Reg., the 30-day training was preparation for both 1st BCT’s rotation at the U.S. Army National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., as well as future conflicts they may face. As the war in Afghanistan comes to a close, military leaders have turned their attention to a new era of training, Norman said. Armywide, brigades have switched from counterinsurgency to decisive action training, where troops incorporate counterinsurgency techniques with traditional force-on-force maneuvers. At Fort Carson, 1st Brigade is the first to incorporate these new techniques into its training. “We are training to prepare for a hybrid threat,” said Norman. Norman said Soldiers must now prepare for any contin- gency, including fighting a uniformed military with the same weapons capability as the U.S. Army as well as insurgents, all while protecting and helping a civilian population. In order to make the switch from counterinsurgency Photos by 1st Lt. Jared Grant tactics, Soldiers had to throw out the proverbial playbook Dressed in full chemical protective equipment, Sgt.

May 18, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 15Soldierssponsorfield day Story and photos by Samantha B. Koss Special to the Mountaineer Soldiers partnered with schools through the Adopt-A-School programinvited their students to Fort Carson for a camp day at Ironhorse Park May 11. The camp gave 200 kindergarten through fifth-grade students anopportunity to see what it’s like to be a Soldier for a day. Students movedbetween 12 stations where they learned lifesaving techniques from Armymedics, tried on combat gear and climbed in military vehicles. “This camp gives the students a chance to see what kinds of thingsSoldiers do, where they work and see what it takes to be a Soldier,” saidMargaret McCormick, lead of school support service, which partnersstudents and units through the Adopt-A-School program. Units sponsor local schools through this program and Soldiers mentor,tutor and become role models for the students. It also gives Soldiers anopportunity to give back to the community. “The kids are excited to try on our gear, and I like teaching them aboutit,” said Staff Sgt. Barrie Maken, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment,1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, who explained what eachpiece of his gear does. “I think they really just want to play with the gear,not listen to me lecture about it.” Maken and his battle buddies helped students don Kevlar helmets andbulletproof vests while their teachers took pictures. The students eagerlywaited in line to see what it feels like to be a Soldier. “The kids run up to (the Soldiers) when they visit … they are alwaysglad to see them,” McCormick said. “It has been a positive experienceall the way around.” Some Soldiers help by tutoring their students in math and science whileothers join them in the school cafeteria as lunch buddies. “It depends on what help the school needs,” McCormick said. “And howmuch time the unit can give … some Soldiers even come on their own.” The Adopt-A-School program has grown to include 37 Fort Carson unitswho are partnered with 35 schools. The students were picked to attend thecamp, most of whom have someone close to them in the military. This isthe second year Fort Carson hosted the camp. “It was such a big hit last year we decided to do it again,” McCormicksaid. “They learn all the different areas of the Army here, and then theteachers tie it back into the classroom.” Not only is the camp day an opportunity for students to learn about the Staff Sgt. Anton Waterman, 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade CombatArmy, but it also gives them a chance to think about the Army as a career. Team, 4th Infantry Division, pulls J.C.

34 MOUNTAINEER — May 18, 2012Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Ashley Jenkins Intramural softball player Ashley Jenkins is an Army officer who would do whatever it takes to make sure her Soldiers know they have her full support and backing. Recently during the intramural softball preseason tournament, Jenkins was so intent on making a play that she sustained a nice “shiner” as the ball glanced off her glove and hit her in the cheek. Jenkins said it was more embarrassing than hurtful, but she wanted to make a play for her team. What got you to come out and play softball this season? I have been playing sports since the second grade, but haven’t played softball in about two years, so it’s kind of ironic that I am even out here. I signed up because the unit was short players, and I said if that is the case, sign me up. What is your favorite professional sports moment? I’m from the St. Louis area, so I was super stoked when the Cardinals won the World Series last year. What is your favorite personal sports moment? It’s always great to get that game-winning hit or make that awesome amazing play, but right now playing with my unit is my favorite sports moment. I love the camaraderie we have here. It’s a lot different than any team I have played on because of the other aspects we have since we work together. What is the one thing in sports you haven’t done that you would still like to do? I grew up in a small town that only offered us basketball and softball, so I would like to try sports other than the ones I am comfortable with because I have never played anything else. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that ... I am an officer in the Army. When I am out and about and people see me they have a hard time understanding that I am independent and am ambitious with goals. It’s hard for them to see me being in the military. Right now, I am in the (supply officer) position for my battalion, and I like learning something new every day. Photo by Walt Johnson Wiinning S Winning Smiles For Everyone!

36 MOUNTAINEER — May 18, 2012 Photo by Nel Lampe Artifacts from the Titanic are displayed in the Molly Brown House until the end of the year. Molly Brown House Museum A Titanic survivor: Denver resident Molly Brown by Nel Lampe Mountaineer staff This year marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on its maiden voyage. A Denver resident was aboard the ship when it went down in the Atlantic Ocean — Margaret Brown, who became the most famous Titanic survivor and a heroine. Margaret Tobin Brown was in Europe with friends, John Jacob and Madeleine Astor, when she received news that her grandson was ill. Anxious to get home, she hurriedly booked passage on the first available ship, which was the Titanic, making its maiden voyage. At that time, the Titanic was the largest ocean liner ever built and was luxuriously appointed. Wealthy first-class passengers were among the 2,228 passengers and crew aboard the ship when it set sail April 10, 1912. Learn about Margaret Brown and her role in helping Titanic survivors by visiting the Molly Brown House Museum. Opt for the Titanic tour and be taken back to that tumultuous time by a guide who tells the story while showing visitors through the Brown house. The Titanic tour will continue through December. Margaret Brown’s story starts in Hannibal, Mo., where she lived with her Irish immigrant Photo by Nel Lampe The Browns bought a house in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Denver, just blocks from the Colorado Capitol. The mansion cost about $30,000 at the time. Margaret Brown added the lions and sphinxes to the house.
