Slain Carson snipers’ tour was near end

By TOM ROEDER and ANTHONY LANE THE GAZETTE

The Army on Friday identified three Fort Carson soldiers who died in Iraq on Tuesday when a roadside bomb exploded near their Humvee.

Killed were Staff Sgt. Ryan E. Haupt, 24, of Phoenix; Sgt. Norman R. Taylor III, 21, of Blythe, Calif.; and Pfc. Nathan J. Frigo, 23, of Kokomo, Ind. The three, all assigned as snipers in the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, were riding together to protect a convoy traveling between Baqouba and Balad when the bomb went off.

The deaths came days before the brigade was scheduled to begin coming home from Iraq. The first soldiers to return to Fort Carson after the brigade’s yearlong tour are due back Sunday.

Frigo and Taylor were honored at Friday night football games in their hometowns.

Frigo lettered in cross country and track at his high school in Indiana. His father, Fred Frigo, said the determination shown by the 6-foot-3-inch runner as he raced down the track at Northwestern High School was an early indication of what led him to the Army.

“He knew the risks, but he wanted to go where he was needed,” he said. “He wanted to help, and he wanted to make a difference with his life.”

Taylor appeared set on a path to become a leader in the Army even when he was in high school, said 1st Sgt. Gerald Edwards, a military instructor for a junior ROTC program in Blythe.

“He was an excellent cadet,” Edwards said, explaining how he watched Taylor rise from captain in the battalion to become its commander.

Taylor played football and wrestled at Palo Verde Valley High School before graduating in 2003. He enlisted in the Army afterward, Edwards said.

Edwards said he was stunned to hear Taylor had been killed.

“I still don’t believe it,” Edwards said. “He was more than a student to me. He was a friend.”

Haupt served in Korea for 18 months before his first tour in Iraq started in December 2005. He grew up in Phoenix and is survived by his wife.

Dan Armstrong, who taught Frigo high school geography, said the young man stood out, but not because he was boisterous or brilliant.

“He was just a good kid,” Armstrong said. “Quiet, not on the honor roll, just an average, real good kid.”

Fred Frigo said his son joined the Army 18 months ago and opted for the infantry because he wanted to go to Iraq.

Because of his athletic prowess and marksmanship skills honed while hunting deer in Indiana, Frigo was selected to be a sniper.

His father worried about the dangers he faced in combat, but in recent days his excitement at the prospect of being reunited with his son had grown after his son called to say he’d be home soon.

“He was so close to coming home, so this hits us hard,” the elder Frigo said.

The deaths bring Fort Carson’s toll to 173 soldiers killed since the Iraq war began in 2003, including 23 from the 3rd Brigade.

Bombs have been the biggest killer of Fort Carson soldiers in Iraq, claiming 66 lives.

Haupt, Frigo and Taylor were among nine soldiers and one Marine killed Tuesday in Iraq.

My name is Sgt Haupt from 1-68 Cab (combined arms battalion), stationed out of Fort Carson Colorado. We arived in country around the middle of Dec and are just starting our 1 year tour. I am a sniper team leader and I am representing my platoon. Our living conditions right now are pretty good considering. The guys would like some snacks like beef jerky, candy, any other goodies that one might think of. Also Hygene gear. our little store doesnt have to much so shampo and soap, deoterants, toothpaste and tooth brushes. Of course anything else that someone might think is cool to give. Mostly I want the guys to know that they are supported back home by more then their family. The media sends the wrong message and these guys need to feel good about what they are doing. Well, I guess thats it. Thank you

IMPORTANT! DO NOT PRINT THIS PAGE!!!

Why? Because this list changes all the time due to unit movements, soldier transfers, or even soldier casualties.
It is also illegal. ALL content on this site is copyright Any Soldier Inc.
DO NOT send any letter or package to a soldier's address unless you check this web site the same day you mail your packages.
Please do not burden the soldiers or the APO/FPO by sending things when the soldiers are gone. If a soldier is not listed here anymore then that soldier's address is expired. Check here often!

Note that some of the units do not have ranks shown on their addresses.
This is done at the unit's request, but ALL of our contacts ARE Servicemembers.

Be sure to change the "ATTN" line to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier if your package is for a female!

DO NOT use this program if you expect or require a reply!
DO NOT expect, or require, a reply from a Soldier!
A supporter said it perfectly, "I mean, these guys and gals have other things on their minds, y’know? Like...oh, STAYING ALIVE?"


(NOTE *): Effective 1 May 2006 this web site added a major layer of security to our contacts' information. This change is necessary to protect our troops and ensure that Any Soldier will continue to operate.
The ONLY changes are that the addresses of our contacts are now hidden and the number of addresses you can get are limited. You may obtain addresses simply by clicking on the link provided and correctly filling out the form, the address will then be emailed to you immediately.

(NOTE **): The number shown is how many times a form was submitted requesting this address. This does NOT necessarily mean that this contact will be helped by that many folks. Rule of thumb is that anything 5 requests or less may in fact be no support at all. No way to tell exactly unless the contact lets you know in his/her update how much support they are getting.

(Note 1.): Note that postage to APO AE and FPO AE (E = Europe) is only to NY where the connection to the APO/FPO (APO = Army Post Office)(FPO = Fleet Post Office) is, or to San Francisco for APO AP and FPO AP (P = Pacific), so you don't pay postage all the way to Iraq/Afghanistan. You might consider picking contacts closer to your mailing area to help cut the cost of mailing. If you live on the East Coast, pick "AE", West Coast, pick "AP", Midwest, well...uh, Thank You for your Support! ;)

New with us (December 2005) you might notice "APO AA" and "FPO AA". This is for units in the Caribbean/South America. Normally. However, due to the nature of some units they may be in Iraq but have an address showing "FPO AA". Mail addresses to "AA" goes out of Miami, Florida.

(Note 2.): Why are military addresses weird? There isn't a street address or city. What gives? Correct, just about everything about the military is weird to civilians. Military units are very mobile, they move around a lot, often they even become part of another unit. The APO (Army Post Office) and FPO (Fleet Post Office) assign APO and FPO numbers as needed, they are NOT static. An APO/FPO number may be for a large unit, or a location. An APO/FPO number for Baghdad today may be for Frankfurt tomorrow.

(Note 3.): The "Expect to not mail past" date is only an approximate and is one of the least reliable things on this web site. It is because of this that you must check often before you send anything to this unit. There are a few reasons this date is not reliable, to include: it IS the Military, we ARE dealing with the APO/FPO/DPO. The only thing that does not change in the military is that things will change. PLEASE NOTE that a Contact is dropped off our active list 30 days PRIOR to their date leaving to help avoid mail bouncing.

(Note 4.): (Removed for OPSEC reasons)

(Note 5.): The lines, "Contact with approx number of Soldiers:" and "Approx how may Female Soldiers:" have NOTHING to do with unit strength. They are approximately how many other Troops the Contacts believe they can get packages to. This helps you understand that you should not send 100 packages to someone who only deals with 10 Troops.
Don't forget that if your package is for a female Soldier, be sure to change "ATTN: Any Soldier®" to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier".

( Note 6.): This is simply where the unit this contact is from. This is NOT a true picture of the folks in the unit as most all units are made up of folks from all over the United States.) A "Composite Unit" is one made up of other units and is usually temporary for a particular mission.

( Note 7.): Updated APO/FPO/DPO mailing restrictions> courtesy of Oconus.com (gone now) (Note: About Restriction "U2": "U2 - Limited to First Class Letters", Box "R" is for retired personnel that live overseas and are still authorized an APO/FPO box. Their address will be something like Box 3345R. Doubt you will see anything like that in Afghanistan or Iraq or ...)(Please Note: Sometime in August 2013, Oconus.com changed the code on their page and our form doesn't work with them anymore, so a link to their page is the best we can do, sorry.)
