  • Winter's Unseen Trap

    Dec 11, 2013

    As an officer and aviator in the U.S. Army, I -- like most of you -- have been exposed to a significant amount of safety training. We've all learned that the unseen hazard is oftentimes the most dangerous. For example, Field Manual 3-04.301(1-301), Aeromedical Training for Flight Personnel, highlights Type I (unrecognized) spatial disorientation as the most dangerous because the hapless aviator has no idea they are disoriented, and thus, takes no action to correct the danger facing them. Carbon monoxide is similarly insidious. Whether it is exhaust leaking into your vehicle, or perhaps a propane heater warming a tent, carbon monoxide takes its prey with no warning. However, this article is not about spatial disorientation or carbon monoxide. There is another hazard that's similarly treacherous and just as veiled. Unfortunately, I found myself in its trap on my way home from drill one weekend.

James "Jamie" Lyn Skalberg Jr. Skalberg's son was killed in Afghanistan just 17 short months ago. Since then, she and her husband, James, have clung to those memories while slowly emerging from their personal pain as new members of the military's Gold Star community, a community of families who have lost a loved one during war. Throughout the nation, Gold Star families are surrounded by communities of supporters -- often led by the Army Community Service's Survivor Outreach Services -- who want to express the nation's gratitude for their sacrifice. At Redstone Arsenal, Skalberg recently attended an SOS-sponsored Gold Star parent luncheon and on Nov. 11 she will represent her family at a Veterans Day breakfast that will honor Gold Star families. She may even participate in the Veterans Day Parade, which will include a parade float for Gold Star families.
