  • Looking for a Sponsor for an Army Troop in Iraq

    I am looking for any individual or group / outfitter to sponsor our Troop. We are an
    OH-58D (R) Kiowa Warrior Armed Scout Helicopter Troop based out of Fort Wainwright, AK deployed to Kirkuk Iraq. We are in desperate need of targets. Looking for anything to practice on. There are about 12 of us that have bows here and practice. I actually hand carried the "Block" over here and that is the only thing we have.

    What we will do in return: An American Flag will be flown in our helicopter on a mission dedicated and sent to you with a certificate of authenticity. Pictures and updates of what is going on here our daily adventures here hunting in Iraq.

    Again we would appreciate any help given. If interested post here and I will send you our address.

    Thanks


    I realize we are fighting a ruthless group of murderers and we have no option No Option! But to hunt them down ... One by One. And that's exactly what we're going to do. - President George W. Bush, 15 March 2002

      How would you go about sending a target over there? Can you drop it of at a base a have it shipped? If you can get a burlap bag and stuff it with shrink wrap or plastic it will make a pretty good target.

        We can get anything through the Post Office, Official Mail. That is a good Idea, will see what we can make. Thank you.

          Blue8Gulf, if you can make it down to Riflestock FARP and can fit them in your KW's I can leave a few targets for you. I'm with the AKARNG Helo unit near there and can drop at least one off at Riflestock. SIPR 242-0430, ask for the SGM

            See if there are any unserviceable sleeping bags at Supply. A polyester-fill sleeping bag, put into a garbage bag and tied really snugly, will last through thousands of archery shots. Just make sure it is backed up to a proper stop and nothing will get through it! As it begins to spill out because of shot holes, simply re-bag it!

            Want a bigger target? Add another bag.

            Problem solved!

              Riflestock is a little to far for now. Plus there isn't much room. I built a stand that has 3 layers of carpet and 11 layer of cardboard (fast packs). I hand carried one back from R&R and a few other soldiers are doing the same. Thanks for the offer SGM I do appreciate it. We have about 13 people with bows now and our targets are going fast. We should be getting some new ones in soon.

                Archery hunt for caribou in the North Slope.

                Attention: Ft Wainwright OH-58D Kiowa Warrior Armed Scout Helicopter Troops,
                I can offer two of your troops an invitation to join me on a caribou archery hunt
                to the North Slope. My regular hunting partner has left the nieghborhood. I have been
                to the Slope twice. I have a reliable truck. I sent a similar invitation to your Public
                Relations Office. I have yet to receive a reply. I am looking at the first week of
                September for the hunt. I expect to be out for a week. It takes one day of driving
                each way from the Slope. We can discuss more particulars with your reply. Regards.
                Jojo

                  I and others would love to go on the hunt with you. Especially because it would be some of our first hunts. Unfortunitley We are still deployed and will not be back until next year some time. Thank you so much for the offer and if it still stands next year I can help arrange things. Good luck though, I am sure there are soldiers back that would love to go with you. Sorry I don't know who you need to contact. Good luck hunting.

                    Blue8Gulf, order them from cabelas. I got them delivered last year in Iraq and we just had a 3-D deer delivered last week to us here in Afghanistan. Cabelas will ship just about anything. The only thing I couldn't get them to send over here was the large brown bear 3-D target. Block targets and bags aren't an issue. I order a new bow from Bowtech every deployment and I always get a few new guys shooting bows. We're setting up an archery range here on the COP. Last deployment we even had one guys who was a certified instructor so we got a lot of Soldiers IBEP certified.

                      Thanks for the info again. Stay safe over there. This place is definitely ready for us to leave. Nothing going on here. When you get back we will have to get together if you have time and you can answer the million questions I have.

                            Hey Blue8Gulf,

                            I second what TigerRudyM said about the invite on a North Slope hunt next year for you or a couple of your guys. The wife is still active (25+yrs) and still going. I had my fill and got out after 16 yrs active and 5 yrs GS!

                            As for targets, sh!!!, take your bows with you on missions and see if you can't hit a few moving targets!

                            Anyways, keep your powder dry and Godspeed!!

                            Terry

                              Thanks for the reply's and offers for hunting trips. You better believe it that I and a few others will take both Jojo and Terry up on your offers. I will definitely keep in touch as the year progresses. Life here in Iraq is boring and Hot right now. Hoping to come home early but it does not look that way. I and a bunch of us pilots are really looking forward to hunting and just enjoying everything AK has to offer. I myself am planning on retiring out here for good. Thanks again
