Eric Cruz Made Honorary Night Stalker

[Fort Campbell, Kentucky] – Eric Cruz, President of Cruz Associates, Inc. (CAI), was recently designated an Honorary Night Stalker by Colonel Philip Ryan, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) (SOAR(A)) Regimental Commander.  Honorary Members of the Regiment positions are designed to recognize non-regimental members for their service to the Regiment.  Working behind the scenes in support of Night Stalkers and their families for nearly two decades, Eric has proven to be as much a Night Stalker as any of us who is wearing or has worn the beret.  He is committed to the Night Stalker ethos and has been an ardent supporter of the Night Stalker Association (NSA).  The modest, green “Cruz” marquis outside the Regiment’s back gate symbolizes that Eric is here to support Night Stalkers.  To that end, he has been fully committed to hiring Special Operations Aviation professionals.  Currently, 71% of all Cruz Associates’ employees are former Special Operations personnel with a cumulative total of over 1326 years of service to the 160th SOAR(A). Congratulations, Eric!
