CLAY NATIONAL GUARD CENTER, Marietta, GA., June 29, 2011 - In the honored military tradition of internal competition, this year marked the Inaugural TAG Defender Cup Competition between the Georgia National Guard and the Georgia State Defense Force. The GANG and the GSDF are two of the three divisions that make up the Georgia Department of the Defense. The Georgia Air National Guard is the third component; however they did not compete in the event this year. The day started with an early morning speech from Maj. Gen. William T. Nesbitt, Georgia’s Adjutant General. The General addressed the two 10 Soldier teams and supporters to review the eight tough categories of competition which included a relay race, a four-mile ruck march, land navigation course, a push-up and sit-up competition, a Humvee pull, and a tug-a-war event. The competition finished with a grilling from a NCO board testing Soldiers on topics like customs and courtesy, military history and professional appearance.

The first event was the relay race. The GSDF suffered their first defeat of the day, but had a really strong finish by CPL Jones to close the time gap. After the relay, teams were broken up to smaller groups to compete in the other events. SSG Derucki and PFC Russell were shuttled to another location to start the four-mile ruck march and SGT Weeks and PV2 Chambers were sent to the land navigation course. SSG Derucki, a proud 52 year old, and Spc. Jared Echevarria, one of the National Guard Soldiers, took an early lead in the four-mile march. After learning that you need to finish with your partner during the race, Spc. Echevarria dropped back to his teammate. Not knowing this until later, SSG Derucki forged ahead to finish the four-mile march in :54.08. Now knowing that he needs to cross the finish line with his teammate, he turned around and hustled back to PFC Russell and within a few minutes, the two came running up a hill to the finish line.

TAG Cup continued from page 1

The last two events tested both teams mental and physical toughness. Each 10 member team had to pull a Humvee up a hill with ropes and then move to a tuga-war pit to finish the day’s events. The GSDF Soldiers came up victors in both events. At this point, the GSDF team knew they won the land navigation, the Humvee pull and the tug-a-war competitions, but not sure where they stood in total points and there was one more task, the NCO Board testing.

Maj. Gen. William T. Nesbitt, Georgia’s Adjutant General, addresses the troops.

Command Sergeant Major James Nelson, the Adjutant General’s senior enlisted leader and the State Defense Force Command Sgt. Maj. Randy Garrett, who were the masterminds behind this competition, tested the soliders’ military knowledge to finish this Inaugural event. At the end of the day, the Georgia State Defense Force would come up recipients of the Defender’s Cup trophy. “In my opinion, this is history in the making, and a tremendous step forward for us,” said Sergeant 1st Class Wade Price, State Defense Force Defender’s Cup team coach. “I’m proud of my guys, and I feel like Story and photos by we’ve gained acceptance to stand as equals next to the Guard.”

Fox SportsSouth Tribute to the Troops A ATLANTA, Ga., July 3, 2011 - The outpouring of appreciation and patriottism easily topped the temperature gauges midfield at Turner Stadium on Hank Aaron Drive in “HotLanta” where Fox SportsSouth, in conjunction H with w the Atlanta Braves, were paying homage to U.S. service personnel. The T “Tribute to the Troops” included current soldiers lining the infield as a the announcer introduced the elite soldiers of the 3rd Battalion/1st Brigade Georgia State Defense Force Color Guard, who presented the B national and state colors while the national anthem was sung. n Shortly after 1:00 p.m., with temperatures flaring well into the nineties, S SSG Jeffery Smith, SFC Brian Griffith, SSG Doug Ford and SGT Jason S Loefer marched out onto national television in their distinctive Dress L Blue B Color Guard uniforms. With a rigid coordination of absolutely precise c timing and movements, the soldiers of the 3rd battalion rigidly held tight as their flags caught occasional wind bursts while members of the t Army National Guard lining the infield staunchly saluted the presentaA tion as the Star Spangled Banner was sung a cappella. The audience of t over 23,000 patriotic fans clapped wildly in an emotional demonstration ov of patriotic support the day before the fourth of July as the Color Guard then marched off of the ball field and into the memory of honored tradition. Major Mike Hayden, 3rd Battalion Commander, and OIC of the Fox SportsSouth Tribute to the Troops mission said that, “The only thing that could have made this day more perfect was if the Atlanta Braves had of won the ball game but unfortunately they didn’t as they were subsequently beaten five to four in a three game series with the Baltimore Orioles.” Story and photo by SFC Ron Cosgrove 3/1 UPAR

As Command Chaplain I would like to take time to show appre-

CH (MAJ) Johnny Ashburn

ciation for two of our states finest military chaplains. CH (MAJ) Johnny Ashburn and CH (CPT) Fred Skinner have served the GSDF faithfully for several years. Each of them performs duty for the Joint Forces HQ Chaplain Office by conduting military funerals for veterans. Many times the Joint Forces HQ Chaplaincy is working hard on events and training for the National Guard and call upon the GSDF Chaplain Corps to perform funerals that they are not available to conduct.

CH (CPT) Fred Skinner

These men have for the past two years stepped up and performed these important missions across the state at an average of 3 per month. Each of these outstanding military ministers comes with years of experience as pastor of local church congregations. Often this type of dedication goes without any notice by GSDF soldiers and staff. Our nations WWII veterans are passing away at a startling pace of 1500 per day. The Korean and Vietnam Veterans are now also passing away in large numbers as the years pass by so quickly. The GSDF Chaplain Corps is proud to honor our American Veterans who have served this nation faithfully. Today we take time to offer our sincere appreciation for this dedication to our Veterans and the aid that these two chaplains are providing for our National Guard. All of the members of the GSDF Chaplain Corps are working diligently and in a professional manner to serve our beloved state of Georgia and this nation. May God Bless and I send out a hearty HOOAH!

CIVIL UNREST IN NEWNAN? JACKSON, Ga., July 9, 2011 - Elements of Bravo Company/2-121 Infantry unit of the Georgia National Guard stationed in Newnan, GA were called upon to deal with instances of civil unrest including almost two dozen rioters. Luckily, Bravo Company was actually engaged in riot control training and the rioters in this OPFOR exercise were members of 1BN and 2BN of the 5th Brigade, Georgia State Defense Force, under the command of MAJ Jim Moore and SSG Larry Caldwell of the 1BN/5BDE. Under the direction of SSG Michael Deeds of the GANG, the two groups were able to engage in a number of scenarios designed to test the mettle of Bravo C Company iin ddealing li with ith an unruly l crowd. d Throughout the steamy and sometimes stormy day, National Guard soldiers were able to practice their technique using shields, batons, and even pepper spray (inert!) while keeping their formations and controlling the crowd. They were also able to practice identifying and extracting ringleaders while making arrests safely, and in an orderly fashion. Later exercises also included extracting endangered counter-protesters from the threatening mob. Meanwhile, the GSDF soldiers did their best to confound the trainees with the unexpected, sometimes charging, sometimes sitting, and always creating confusion and distraction with yelling, screaming and brandishing protest signs. As one NG soldier was heard to say later on in the afternoon after a particularly interesting response from the GSDF troops, “Where did the hose come from?” Story by CPL D. Ceabron Williams A Co. 2/5, GSDF

C CHATWORTH Ga., July 2, 2011 - Georgia State Defense Force 1st Battalion 1st Briggade came out to help one of their own. During the recent storms, a tree had fallen on the hhome of PFC Vicky Wood. PFC Wood lives in the home with her husband and four small ggrandchildren. The tree also knocked down their power pole and the family was left with nno power or hot water for two weeks. Major Jerry Willard, 1st Battalion Commander said “After the recent storms we are more M aaware than ever the need for disaster assistance training. We have secured tools to further eenhance our ability to provide assistance to our community.” “Removing the tree was a great opportunity to have hands on training with the new chainsaws and safety equipment. The training received meets the METL (Missions Essential Task List) which is to assist communities in time of need. In the event severe weather strikes again, 1/1 will be ready” said PFC Troy Parrish PFC Parrish instructed the soldiers in the use, maintenance and safety of the equipment. They were then able to put their training to work for a fellow soldier. They removed the tree safely from the home. The soldiers cut up the tree, and loaded the wood for removal from the property. The additional brush and debris removal afforded the family additional play space. Story and photo by PFC Ruthie Parrish 1/1 UPAR HEADS-UP | July 2011

2BN/1BDE Leads 4th of July Mission Supporting the Acworth Police Department A ACWORTH, Ga., – July 4, 2011 - As in past years, 2nd Batttalion, 1st Brigade of the GSDF was handed the task of leading the mission to augment the Acworth Police Department in safely managing the flow of people and vehicles throughout tthe Acworth Beach area during the City of Acworth’s annual IIndependence Day event. Seventy-six troops from 2nd Battalion and other units within tthe GSDF – inclusive of 1st and 3rd Battalions, 1st Brigade hheadquarters and medical elements, and the GSDF’s 76th Support Brigade – put their training to work manning traffic pposts, roving the beach, and providing a uniformed presence tthroughout the day and into the evening. Troops specially trained in advanced first-aid and life-saving skills assisted tr visitors with a few mild heat exhaustion cases. Other troops reunited children and parents temporarily separated from one another in the crowd. All troops kept an eye out for unsafe or hazardous activities or conditions. Operations were hindered by bad weather in the form of passing thundershowers, but the weather was not enough to stop the assembled soldiers from continuing their mission. When the first storm cell broke in the afternoon, bringing with it high winds, heavy rains, and cloud to ground lightning, troops dashed into action, directing civilians away from exposed areas and anything – such as tall trees – that might be particularly attractive to lightning. At one point, tents positioned over the shuttle waiting line were blowing erratically due to the winds. Several troops immediately held the tents in place over the walkway where the civilians were lined up. As Sgt. 1st Class Wade Price of 1st Brigade Headquarters and one of the senior non-commissioned officers overseeing troops responsible for manning traffic control points accounted: “These soldiers, with complete disregard for their own safety, held onto the metal framework of these tents against the wind, lightning, and driving rain thus ensuring shelter for civilians seeking cover from the storm.” Although no emergency was declared, plans for facilitating the departure of civilians from the beach area were successfully put into action earlier than scheduled due to the weather which unfortunately for attendees gathered for the main event – led to the City Manager’s decision to cancel the day’s main event – the fireworks show that was to start at 9:15PM. Undaunted, and despite continuing wind, rain, and lightning, soldiers continued to assist with shuttling civilians back to their cars and directing vehicles out of the park. The GSDF soldiers present for the mission put forth their best efforts and made good use of their skill set in supporting the City of Acworth, the Acworth Police Department and helping ensure the safety of civilians gathered for the day’s celebration. At the close of the mission, Acworth Police Department Chief Michael Wilkie made a point of assuring Cpt. Michael Kent, 2nd Battalion’s commanding officer, that the GSDF’s participation was indeed vital to ensuring a safe experience for all who attended the day’s event Story by 2LT Timothy Wheeler 2/1 GSDF 6

GSDF Band Performs at Fabulous 4th Festival GEORGIA INTERNATIONAL HORSE PARK, Conyers, Ga., July 4, 2011 - Stormy weather tamped down the temperatures, but didn’t put a damper on patriotism at the Fabulous Fourth Festival at the Georgia International Horse Park. For the fourth year in a row, the Georgia State Defense Force Band provided musical entertain ment. This year, the band played jointly with the Greater Atlanta Patriot Band, a community band led by former GSDF Band commander Glenn Moore. Moore directed the combined band while current GSDF band commander 2LT Eddie Anthony played tuba. The festival got underway amid sprinkles left over from the storm. But the sprinkles stopped just before the band began to play. The musicians performed a variety of patriotic songs, including “Washington Post” and “Stars and Stripes Forever”; the theme from the movie, Stripes; Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA,” featuring vocals by trumpet player SGT David Adams; and the well-known tune from U.S. Army recruiting ads, “Army Strong.” Festival organizers held a patriotic program, and the band was part of those proceedings as well. The program honored the warriors in the global war on terrorism, as the nation approaches the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The band performed the National Anthem; “America Exultant,” a lively march that incorporates the patriotic tune, “America”; and a medley of the military service songs. The audience was moved when SFC Larry Carey, first sergeant of the band, played the haunting “Taps” on bugle. Festival organizers presented 2LT Anthony with a plaque of appreciation. 2LT Anthony said he and the band were happy and proud to be a part of the patriotic celebration.The GSDF is currently recruiting musicians for all sections. Musicians who are members of other GSDF units are also welcome to play with the band as their duties permit. For more information, contact SFC Carey at airbrne_mp@yahoo.com.

GSDF Soldiers Participate as Pre-Mobilization Training Assistance Elements (PTAE) FORT STEWART - Hinesville, Ga., June 14, 2011 - As many as nine GSDF soldiers from the 5th Brigade participated as OPFOR (Opposing Forces) for the PTAE. Soldiers report to Ft. Stewart for a six day period and act as an OPFOR to prepare soldiers for deployment. According to the training cadre, the soldiers who come through this portion of pre-deployment training are getting a refresher on warrior tasks and battle drills that were taught during basic training. As OPFOR, our responsibility is to provide a realistic and hostile environment. We use many training props to accomplish this like authentic clothing worn by insurgents and villagers, plastic guns, knives, and simulated wounds. The mission also includes the use of firearms fitted to fire blanks on weekend paintball guns. According to Capt. Bowen, the OIC for the OPFOR Mission, the hardest part of the mission is getting enough volunteers. In order for the mission to precede smoothly, a minimum of eleven GSDF soldiers are needed each day. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but getting participants has become an issue. He went on to say that if each GSDF soldier would commit to four days a year he would have plenty of help. For those of you who may wonder what accommodations are available, the barracks are usually close to the soldiers in training housing and consist of twelve, two-man rooms. Each room is equipped with the basics; bed, cabinet, nightstand and A/C. There is also a mini refrigerator and fan in each room for added comfort. You bring your own linens (sleeping bag). During the mission you are fed at one of the base cafeterias or a MRE while in the field. Each day starts at 0500 and ends between 1800 and 1900 hrs. The dress code for OPFOR is casual, but keep in mind that you must be in uniform to eat at the cafeteria. During this mission we don’t just train enlisted soldiers. There are soldiers from the lowest private to full bird Colonels going through the same training. It was odd seeing Sergeants giving orders to Officers, but in many of the scenarios the Officers gave the opportunity to lead to the enlisted and their performance as leaders in most cases was inspiring. There is no money currently for this mission, but we get paid with the best currency of all, the lives we help save and the many thanks we get from the soldiers we help train. GSDF Soldiers, try to put this mission on your to do list. You will feel the reward each and every day you do. For further information on this mission contact Capt. C. Bowen, 3rd Battalion 5th Brigade. Story and Photo by Cpl. Peter Shirley 3/5 UPAR, GSDF HEADS-UP | July 2011

WE NEED YOU! OPFOR Myths and Misconceptions FORT STEWART - Hinesville, Ga. There are rumors floating about concerning OPFOR that need to be addressed. Let me start by introducing myself. I am SSG Prah, NCOIC of OPFOR at Ft. Stewart. I have been the NCOIC for this mission for over a year and a half, and have more than 130 mission days with OPFOR over 2 years. I’ve heard that OPFOR is a “clique or club”. It is not. I didn’t like cliques from grade school through college. I don’t like them in the GSDF. You do have to be able to function within the parameters of what OPFOR requires. We work outside all the time. Wet, hot, cold, on the ground, all day, every day. We sometimes run. We are actors. We use weapons. We get hit with paintballs. It isn’t for everyone. But if you want to try it...Come On Down. Who knows, maybe lying in the woods all day with a heat index of 105 degrees is what you like. Maybe 50 degrees in February with rain all day is more to your liking. It isn’t an easy mission. We do need troops, troops that can do what we do. We need GSDF troops to come help save a soldier’s life by bringing realism to their training. Come to OPFOR and be tested, we need you. Another myth is that you need a WEPFAM course before you come down. Not so. No one will be allowed to operate a weapon before they have been given instruction by someone that knows that weapon. We will get you up to speed. If we are not comfortable, that you are comfortable and knowledgeable on a weapon, we will work with you. I have personally been with a first time OPFOR female that by the end of the mission, had done a basic takedown and re-assemble of a 240B machine gun, and she had fired that weapon on 3 of 4 patrols that we were to ambush that day. If you have OPFOR questions or know of other rumors, please contact me. If I don’t know the answer, I will find out. This is an important mission for the GSDF. Please help me to keep it a successful one. When troops that will eventually be deployed thank you for what you are doing, which is assisting in their training, you might agree with those that have already participated in OPFOR, that this is one of the most important and rewarding assignments the GSDF has to offer.

SGT Goodelman's Health Tip of the Month Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) E Essential fatty acids are the main structure tto the cells membranes. The membrane is the outside of the cell. This membrane needs to be fluid and flexible in order to allow nutrients to enter the cell and allow waste products to leave. The health of the membrane equates to the health of your entire body. If the membranes become rigid, from lack of EFA’s or too much intake of trans fatty acids, the cells will be unable to do their job and disease will occur. The human body needs fatty acids and can manufacture all but two of them - linoleic acid, one of the Omega-6 family and linolenic acid, the primary member of the Omega-3 family. The word essential means that the body cannot manufacture these or make in sufficient quantities to meet its physiological needs. They must come from food sources. A diet rich in omega fatty acids can include the following fish as these are high in EPA and DHA: • Atlantic salmon, farmed and wild

• • • • • •

Tuna Alaskan King Crab Sardines Mackerel Herring Wild Catfish

The American Heart Association recommends the person with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) eat one serving of fish per day. For the person without CHD, they recommend two servings per week. In addition to fish, the diet should be high in oils and foods rich in alpha-linolenic acid including:
