TF Six Shooters recently received the LTG Ellis D. Parker Award for best Combat Aviation UnitPictures 12 for 2011. TF Six Shooters also won the AAAA Aviation Unit of the Year Award. These prestigious awards are a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication OutcastsBirthday 14 put in by every Soldier, NCO, and Officer in Task Force Six Shooters throughoutAnniversary 14 our deployment to Afghanistan. All of this was made possible because of our Families at home provided exceptional support, thoughts and prayers.FRG Corner 16 As we return from the holidays and transition back into our battle rhythm, there is much that needs to be done to prepare for the upcoming de- Desperados ployment next year. We will be conducting many aerial training exercises as well as a deployment to JRTC in Fort Polk, Louisiana in the months ahead. I have no doubt that as a team we will succeed. I could not be prouder of this organization and its efforts over the past year. We will continue to accomplish great things as a Team and Family. Mustangs Six Shooters – AIR CAV!

  7. 7. VOLUME 2, ISSUE 1 PAGE 7 E Troop/6-6Mustang Family & Friends- On behalf of the First Sergeant and I, we hope everyone is enjoying their timehere as winter continues to tease us and as we continue to reintegrate with a more normal-ized schedule. With four months between us and redeployment, it is time to work on trainingto maintain our readiness and prepare for the next deployment, in the motor pool, on theFARP, and at home. In the past month we have begun licensing and re-training on vehicles(snow is sort of like sand, but not enough) and have conducted individual skills training. It hasbeen good to hear of all the Soldiers and families that are taking advantage of the outdooractivities. Take advantage of the North country and try something different, I recommend thatyou try skiing at Dry Hill or Snow Ridge, ice skating at the Watertown Ice Arena (on the fair-grounds) and of course, sledding. We had a great first FRG meeting of the year and will belooking to build upon that with some upcoming FRG events that will give us the opportunity toshare our individual skills and experience for the collective good of the unit. A special thanksgoes out to our new volunteers, Brittany Belcher and Brittany Wright as the Treasurer andalternate treasurer, and Joann Nieves-Ramos as one of our event planners and key callers. Wehave more volunteer opportunities available (I will never say no to a volunteer) The volunteersspread the responsibilities around and are absolutely critical to the FRG’s long term success. Ilook forward to continuing our mission over the months ahead as we develop and maintainour ability to defend freedom and the American way of life (WOOHOOO!!).In December and January we have welcomed 12 new Soldiers to EchoTroop! Veterans, please come by the next FRG meeting to introduceyourselves to the new families so we can get them started on theright foot here at Drum.Echo Troop’s success depends on our constant development, and thebelow individuals have distinguished themselves as prepared to takeon more responsibility and do more good for the unit.

  10. 10. PAGE 10Chaplain’s CornerTF Six Shooters and Families, As the Six Shooters Chaplain, I remain steadfast in bringing God to Soldiers andSoldiers to God, this is the calling on my life. Clearly, there is something radically wrongwith man. The Bible discloses the seat of mans problem as being his heart, his inner be-ing, including his reason. We are full of falsehood, duplicity, and contradiction. We con-ceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves. Perhaps it is in this area that the heart per-forms its most destructive work; it conceals the exceeding sinfulness of sin and its tragic con-sequences and seriousness. It deceives us into thinking that it is not so bad or that God is somerciful that He will overlook it. Do you suppose He can overlook an attitude that so casuallytakes for granted sinful acts that caused the horribly painful and ignominious death of Onewho was truly innocent, His Son? Does He merely ignore an attitude that cares so little for itsown life that it deliberately attempts to bring that wonderful gift of life to an end? Does Hejust avert His eyes when we do something that forms a part of our character that will preventus from being in His image? Some people seem to think so, but is there innocence in this kindof reasoning? Our own heart deceives us into taking sin lightly. But, believe the Bible, God isNOT taking sin lightly because He loves His creation. Sin has caused all the emotional andphysical pain and death that mankind has experienced since Adam. Each of us is suffering tosome degree from it right at this moment. Does this bring us happiness? Do we love sin somuch that we want it to continue? Are we fully aware it may destroy us? Do we want our sin-ful way of life to end? There is only one way it will end, and that is to follow Jesus advice:"Unless you repent you will all likewise perish" (Luke 13:3). When we repent and begin con-trolling ourselves so that we do not sin, it will not stop sin in the world. But unless WE stopsinning, sin will never be stopped. EACH PERSON has to come to see that he is personally re-sponsible for stopping sin in his own life. He cannot wait for others to stop before he stops.The government will not do it for him. Nobody but the individual can stop his sinning unlessGod takes away the persons chance to repent by putting him to death. We cannot allow our-selves to be deceived into taking this casually as the world does. They say, "Everybodys doingit." Millions cheat on their spouses. Who knows how many have literally "gotten away withmurder"! Many cheat the government of their income taxes and never get caught. But wecannot cheat God. How could we escape the gaze of a Being so acutely aware of what is hap-pening that He sees even a sparrow falling? David writes, "Where can I go from YourSpirit?" (Psalm 139:7). God not only sees the acts, but discerns what is "going on" in the heart(verses 1-4, 23-24). -Chaplain (CPT) Richard R Hurst THE REVOLVER
  11. 11. PAGE 11 FRG Corner Bullets from TF Six Shooters’ FRG Happy 2012 TF Six Shooters Families! Hope everyone is enjoying having their soldier home; even if it means extra laundry, listening to a snooze button go off multiple times at 5am and a fridge we can’t seem to keep full. Now that our soldiers are back to work, so is your FRG. As we gather together to reconnect our families since redeploy- ing, we welcome our new families. Theresa and I hope you take the opportunities that your FRG’s are offering, whether it is the monthly meeting, or a social event, and come out to meet one another. We can’t stress enough how important the relationships you build within your FRG are to this organizations continued success. Your leaders are al- ways looking for volunteers, so please consider helping out. Speaking of Leaders, we wish to farewell and thank Katherine Stauffer and Tina Wellenreuther, for all they have contributed as leaders to the families of A Troop and the entire Squadron. Their positive attitude and shining personalities will be greatly missed and their friendship will always be treasured. They leave us with great replacements, Meghan Terry and Amanda Mur- phy, who we are excited to have on our team. For the month of March, the Squadron, along with A Company 2/10, is hosting an Evening of Formal Fashion Wear Event on Friday, March 2nd, 6-9pm in the Squadron Classroom. This is a fun night for spouses to come out and try on dresses at the “Shooters Boutique”, and find the perfect look to wear to our Spring Ball on April 14th, 2012. Featured dresses, shoes, jewelry and purses are available at no cost, on a first come, first fit basis. The Fort Drum Thrift Shop will also add to our event with items that can be purchased. If you wish to donate a formal dress or accessories to this event, please drop off prior to the FRSA’s office between 9-12pm. Lastly, we want to remind our families about our Military Family Life Counselors who are available24/7 to talk over any issues you may be having adjusting to redeploy- ment, a new post, and overall stress that life deals all of us. If you have any concerns about your soldier or a member of your family, please consider making an appointment to speak to an MFLC by calling, 315-405-7449. All the Best Always, Trish and Theresa THE REVOLVER
