RENO GAZETTE-JOURNAL
Posted: 9/28/2005
The last time Roberta Stewart of Fernley talked with her husband, Patrick, he teased her, refusing to describe the souvenirs he'd purchased at a bazaar in Afghanistan.

"He said I'd have to wait to see what they were," Roberta Stewart said Tuesday as she sat in her living room, surrounded by family and friends.

Shortly after the conversation with his wife, Sgt. Patrick D. Stewart, 35, of the Nevada Army National Guard, died in the crash of a Chinook helicopter, part of the U.S. military operation in Afghanistan.

"He called prior to loading the Chinook for the last flight," said Roberta Stewart, whose husband was a flight engineer aboard the helicopter. "He had just been to a bazaar picking up gifts."

It was Saturday in Northern Nevada, Sunday in Afghanistan, where Patrick Stewart's unit, Company D of the 113th Aviation Regiment headquartered at Reno Stead Airport, had been deployed since March.

"Our last words were, 'Be safe. I love you,' " Roberta Stewart said. "He said, 'I will.' "

Also killed in the crash were Chief Warrant Officer John M. Flynn, 36, of Spanish Springs, two Oregon residents in Company D and a sergeant from an Army aviation unit based in Germany. There were no survivors, officials said.

The deaths came three months after Spec. Anthony Cometa, 21, of Las Vegas, became the first Nevada Guard member killed in U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cometa, part of the Henderson-based 1864th Transportation Company, died in Iraq in June when his vehicle crashed while escorting a convoy about 10 miles from the Kuwait border.

The helicopter crash in Afghanistan took place southwest of Deh Chopan in southern Zabul province.

"My husband died doing what he loved most, flying," Roberta Stewart said. "I'm proud of my husband. He was an extraordinary man, husband and soldier."

The crash of the twin-rotor helicopter is under investigation.

Flynn was believed to have been piloting the helicopter when it crashed, his wife, Christine Flynn said. Patrick Stewart was the helicopter's chief engineer.

Army officials in Afghanistan said the crash was believed to be an accident. Militants claimed they shot down the Chinook.

The three others who died in the crash were Sgt. Kenneth G. Ross, 24, of Peoria, Ariz., and of the 7th Battalion, 159th Aviation Regiment based in Germany, and Warrant Officer Adrian B. Stump, 22, and Sgt. Tane T. Baum, 30, both of Company D and Pendleton, Ore.

Funeral arrangements for Patrick Stewart and John Flynn are pending, said Air Force Capt. April Conway, spokeswoman for the Nevada Guard.

Roberta Stewart said there would be a "full military ceremony," for her husband after his body arrives in Reno, followed by a "private family" funeral.

"He loved to help people," Roberta Stewart said of her husband. "He had a pride in what he did."

The couple had been married for three years.

"My husband was one of the few people who could keep me laughing at all times," Roberta Stewart said.

Patrick and Roberta Stewart grew up in Reno.

Patrick Stewart, who attended Wooster High School and graduated from Washoe High, was an 11-year veteran of the Army, Army Reserve and Guard. He served in Operation Desert Storm.

"I think he had an attitude that was very positive," said Steve Stewart, Patrick's father. "He was very supportive of his (Army) team and expressed that a lot."

Patrick and Roberta Stewart moved from Reno to Fernley shortly before Patrick Stewart deployed with Company D.

   Weather is cooling down. Spirits are up. We've reached the 6 month mark and most have already been home on leave and can't wait to go home for good. Only Sgt Reed in our room has been home, the rest of us go home around November.

   What a horrible time for the southern U.S.. I have numerous friends that live mostly in Louisiana and Mississippi and all suffered a total loss of house and home, which leads to me to tell you that they are in worse shape than us and i would like to see any packages meant for my crew shipped to the south to help out the storm victims.

   I will stay an active member and will send monthly updates but wish to see the victims of the storm helped first. God bless you all and good luck.

I am requesting items for myself and 3 other roommates. We have a microwave & a refrigerator in our room. 3 soldiers are from Nevada and 1 is from Washington. We fly the Chinook helicopters and we love what we do. We range in ages from 25 to 51. We will send unit pictures on a monthly basis of all 4 crew members on the job! We are National Guard soldiers on Active Duty. 2 of us are full time technicians on Chinooks 1 is a school bus driver and the other is a prison security guard. We all have different tastes so the following is a compilation of requests from all 4 soldiers:
   cookies (all kinds), caramel & cheese popcorn, jalepeno cheese dip, jerky, coffee, salami, summer sausage, crackers, body wash, dandruff shampoo, peanut m&m's, western books, books on the history of Afghanistan, pop tarts, smoked oysters, beef sticks, hot chocolate mix with marshmallows, Red Vines licorice, magazines (National Geographic, Time, Newsweek, Explorer, etc.) Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Gatorade drink mix, blank cd's, unwanted dvd's and letters for some possible pen pals.
   thank you very much. we don't really need these things to survive but it sure would make life a little better.

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.)
