Cruz Presents Night Stalker Award

[Fort Campbell, Kentucky] – Eric Cruz, President of Associates, Inc. (CAI), recently awarded the Night Stalker Association’s Three-Five Gas and Guns Maintainer of the Year Award to Specialist Shaun Spring from Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC) 4-160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) (SOAR(A)).  This award is presented annually to a 160th SOAR(A) Soldier serving in an Armorer, POL, Armament or Ammunition Handler position who has made an outstanding individual contribution to Special Operations during the previous calendar year.  SPC Spring has supported four CONUS training events, two of which were Battalion size Situational Training Exercises (STX), and also deployed in support of Operation FREEDOM’S SENTINEL (OFS), playing a critical role in enabling wet-wing operations during combat operations.  He was also hand-selected as the new HHC armorer, receiving the HHC Arms Room’s first commendable rating in unit history.  Additionally, SPC Spring was recently selected above seven NCOs to be the ASD NCOIC during a Contingency Response Element rotation within the CENTCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR).  We, at Cruz, are proud to be associated with this humble hero, and we wish him and his family the very best.
