The annual week-long celebration is a rare opportunity for Soldiers, Families, civilians and guests of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment to share in camaraderie and enjoy precious time together while not deployed.

Hundreds gathered for a ceremony remembering the 91 Night Stalkers that died during training or combat in service to their country.  Nearly half of those inscriptions represent Soldiers who died during the last decade while the unit was supporting sustained combat operations in multiple locations around the world.

12th Annual NSA Bass Fishing Tournament

 

On April 24th 2010, the Night Stalker Association we will be having their 12th Annual NSA Bass Fishing Tournament. All the money raised in this tournament goes directly to the Nightstalker Association Fund for Children with Terminally Ill Diseases and the Night Stalker Foundation for Children of Fallen Night Stalkers Scholarship Fund.

The tournament is run solely by volunteers and is supported by numerous donations by individuals and companies. This event started in 1998 when a Soldier in the 160th Aviation Life Support Equipment (ALSE) shop with a terminally ill child had a financial need during an unimaginably trying time in his Family’s life.

Last year’s event saw over 160 registered teams and over 800 people who gathered either to fish or to support the Night Stalker Association and the Tournament. It is their hope that this year’s event will far surpass that of last year in both participation and donations. «Read the rest of this article»
