LTG Ellis (Don) Parker

In Remembrance...

On behalf of AAAA President MG Jeff Schloesser, Ret, AAAA is saddened to learn that Lieutenant General (Ret.) Ellis D. (Don) Parker passed on last evening, Thursday 26 March 2020 at his home in Enterprise, AL.
One of the most influential initial Army Aviation Branch Chiefs, Don was also a record setting OV-1 Mohawk pilot, Past AAAA National President, and Director of the Army Staff. He was one of the first Order of St. Michael Gold recipients and an 1995 Army Aviation Hall of Fame inductee. He is the name-sake for the U.S. Army top aviation battalion awards presented at Fort Rucker each year. May he rest in peace.

Dear Participants,

We have decided we must cancel our April 2020 AAAA Nashville based Mission Summit. We will be looking at options in the coming weeks for AAAA to support expanded networking opportunities later this year at our other longstanding annual events.

In view of yesterday afternoon’s Memorandum from the Director of the Army Staff, Department of the Army dated 12 March 2020 and specifically Section 3 paragraph (e), cancelling travel and attendance at conferences through 24 April, the declaration of a States of Emergency by both Kentucky Governor Beshearin and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee yesterday, and in consideration of safety concerns for our attendees presented by the COVID-19 situation, we have no choice but to cancel our event. >>> Read More

Supporting the Total Force

President's Cockpit / By MG Jeff Schloesser, Ret.  

Army Aviation is a Total Enterprise, as Army Aviation Center of Excellence commander and Aviation Branch Chief, MG Dave Francis makes clear in this issue’s lead off article. As he writes: “The Reserve and Guard (Compos 2 and 3) comprise 51% of Army Aviation’s fleet, and there is no operational or physical way that the Active Duty forces (Compo 1) could fight and win a Large Scale Combat Operation on their own.”

To highlight the Army Reserve and National Guard’s contribution to our Army and Army Aviation, LTG Charles Luckey, Chief, Army Reserve, and Di-rector of the Army National Guard LTG Dan Hokanson, give us personal over-views of their respective components. They are followed by in-depth articles about the specific Army Reserve and National Guard missions and endeav-ors within Army Aviation by BG Jami Shawley and BG Ray Davis. Next are “deep dives” into the National Guard training sites as well as critical issues impacting the readiness and availabil-ity of our reserve and guard aviators and maintainers, including a piece by our new DCG at Fort Rucker, BG Stan Budraitis.  Read More
