Another young soldier dies mysteriously. This time it is 23-year old Sgt. Alex Mathew Dean Taylor.

This makes twelve soldiers from Ft. Hood to die in the last two months! Three were killed in a suicide bomb attack inside Bagram air base in Afghanistan.

3 died of apparent gunshot wounds:

On January 2, Randal K. Anderson, 22, died from 'an apparent gunshot wound' in Killeen, Texas;
On November 26, Wanya Bruns, 20, also died from a gunshot in Killeen;
and Kevin Paulino died from a gunshot wound in Peru, Indiana.

Then this:


Private Dakota Lee Stump, 19, was found dead on the Fort Hood base on November 3 in an apparent car accident.



And then we have these:
Two other unnamed soldiers stationed at Fort Hood died from unspecified illness, while another died in a car accident on January 9.




No information is being released at this time other than a few sketchy reports.

Taylor joined the Army in March 2012 and had been assigned to the 150th Military Intelligence Battalion at Fort Hood since July 2016.

I haven't been able to find any info on the 150th Military Intelligence Battalion. ??


Taylor was a decorated soldier, having earned numerous commendations during his service, including the Army Commendation Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Aviation Badge, and the Air Assault Badge.

Ft. Hood, as you may recall, was where Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and wounded 32.

It just seems unusual that this many young men have died in only two months, some under very mysterious circumstances.

all intelligence officers?

Somebody has a lose kitty scratching eyes out?

I cannot say what happened to all these soldiers, but Ft. Hood is a terrible place. Killeen has a horrible vibe to it. I have been there many times as I had family stationed there. There is a feel to it that is......wrong......uncomfortable......Lord I hated to go there, the earth itself seems to vibrate negativity. The town itself (unlike the generification of the freeway restaurants and stores) is run down, full of crime, drugs and alcoholism. I've been by many bases, depending on where my kiddos get stationed, air bases and army bases.....Ft. Hood is just a rotten place. As they dig up the ground for all the new restaurants and motels, you can find all kinds of sea fossils as it once was covered by the ocean.

I cannot address the potential conspiracy regarding Ft. Hood and the untimely deaths of these poor soldiers, but I can say that it is the most depressing place I have been to, EVER. This may relate to the car accidents because alcohol is the only drug the military allows (besides nicotine) for their enlisted, and it is abused to the point that it is dangerous to drive around bases.

I look forward to any info anybody else has, but all I know is, from a gut level, Killeen / Ft. Hood is the type of place somebody would freak out in and either shoot somebody else or put a bullet in themselves.

I have looked and looked, but cannot find the 150th Military Intelligence Battalion listed anywhere. Wondering if it is new.

Some places are just bad. Infused with evil. I've been to places that were not inviting in any way. They chase you away;

American Indians had an inner sense of what were bad places, to be avoided.

I hear 'ya. There are places I have been where the negative vibe is so strong, it feels almost physical.

However, some of these deaths occurred away from the base in other areas, so I'm wondering if there is more going on here.

Still can't find anything listed for the 150th Military Intelligence Battalion.

This is all I could find....still no 150th Military Intelligence Battalion specifically. 504 is mentioned in regards to Ft. Hood (see below). I wonder of that was a journalist's typo, or an intentional brick wall, or a new battalion for a new purpose. This part is bugging me.


Military Intelligence Corps[edit]
The Military Intelligence Corps is one of the basic branches of the United States Army. In 1971, the United States Army Intelligence Center was established at Fort Huachuca, Arizona as the home of the military intelligence branch. On 1 July 1987 the Military Intelligence Corps was activated as a regiment under the U.S. Army Regimental System.[8] All United States Army Military Intelligence personnel are members of the Military Intelligence Corps.

Units[edit]
Battlefield Surveillance Brigades[edit]
Battlefield Surveillance Brigades (BfSB) are meant to improve the situational awareness about the battlefield for commanders at division level or higher, so they can adapt their units combat power for the current operations. For this the Battlefield Surveillance Brigades can deploy unmanned aerial vehicles, signals gathering equipment, human intelligence collectors and long range surveillance patrols.[9]

There are currently three active Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, each supporting one of the three Corps of the US Army: the 201st BfSB at Fort Lewis, the 504th BfSB at Fort Hood and the 525th BfSB at Fort Bragg. A fourth brigade is scheduled to activate at Fort Polk in 2013 but is not yet named. The Army National Guard has additional seven BfSB's.

Each BfSB consists of a headquarters and headquarters company, two military intelligence battalions, a reconnaissance squadron with a long range surveillance troop, a signals company and a support company.

It is the 15th Military Intelligence Battalion...not the 150th. (Thank you, Sarah Palin FB Page!)

Keep in mind the size of Hood as well. It's about three Divisions (plus). Most military bases house one Division (plus).

It is a hole, let there be no doubt about that. It is the only base I've served on with an on post gang problem and drug raids on base facilities.

Killeen, being the "support town" is just as bad if not worse than Hood proper. The property in the area doesn't really improve until you get out to Temple or Lampasas (30-45 minutes either way).

It's still better than Fort Riley IMO

I realize it's huge and according to some posters, Killeen isn't a great area, but this last young man that was found dead really seemed topnotch. He had received multiple medals, including the Army Good Conduct Medal.

Taylor entered active-duty service in March 2012 and became an aviations operations specialist.

But, he had only been at Fort Hood since July 2016 (about 6 mos. ago) when he was assigned to the 15th Military Intelligence Battalion.

Now he's dead. 23 years old. Cause unknown.

My old psg died out there during a training flight along with the rest of the crew a couple of years ago. The area surrounding Fort Hood is not a nice place. The whole area has a bad vibe(a term I almost never use) and most of the soldiers I knew who PCS'd to Hood dreaded going there or going back.

Same with Fort Bragg. Fayetteville is also known locally as Fayet-Nam.

Now this is really getting strange. You use the term "bad vibe" as did others in this thread. What do you think is causing it? Is there bad juju? Leadership and management issues? Something paranormal?

It's hard to lose troops, especially good ones. Prayers to his family.

As far as the AAM, not to take away from this particular soldier, it can be for almost anything depending on unit SOP.

-Top grad at Air Assault School (or first in the march/APFT)
-Assisting with a unit function (Ball/FTX/toys for tots)
-Scoring in an extended scale in the units record APFT (Fitness Test)
-Winning a local enlisted board (Murphy Prep/Soldier of the Year)

The AGCM is a time in service award. One for every three years of service. It's not so much about doing something right, as it is about not doing anything majorly wrong in those three years.

Even the best of soldiers has a bad day. It only takes a few seconds to make a decision that will effect the rest of your life. Whether it's drinking and driving, hitting a spouse, or eating a bullet. Seconds turn into life. Leaders have to be constantly on guard for their soldiers, the problem is many leaders forget about the "good" ones.

I wonder if he was found on base or on BLORA.

It is either ISIS, Gov, or some high intelligence person calling all the shots. Maybe the entire US military profile for a certain mission was leaked so they all get targeted. Time for them to join the Militia and be homesteading.

I was stationed there twice. It's not referred to as "The Armpit of the World" for nothin'.

Just the kind that get taken for special operations and die on record.

I'd love it if a few of you who've been stationed there or have personal experiences there, could elaborate on why the place has such a negative feel to it.

There's a large population of young joes who are as inexperienced with life as you can imagine, coupled with a #hole town with drug and crime problems, and this is what you get.

You need to remove any person from that list, who did not die on American soil. That would give you a better grasp of the scale of the anomaly. Including combat deaths is going to skew your statistical analysis.

I don't know anyone who liked being at Ft Hood. Was never there myself, but I never heard anyone say "Wow, that was a good posting".



Same with Fort Bragg. Fayetteville is also known locally as Fayet-Nam.


Shut your whore mouth.

Yes, it's sort of like Ft Benning. Which is weird. I liked Columbus in general, but the base was sort of a drag. Ft Bragg was actually ok. The town, not so much. And CCSO sucked donkey balls. As did the Fayettenam police. A lot of the CCSO had 'valor envy' though.


If you were military, it would almost be better to live on the base. Or at least that's how it seemed at the time. A lot has changed, though. Hay Street is totally wiped, now it's all hipster crap. And even the GBC has turned into a Johnny Garlics or some damned thing. Alas.

eta: I used to have nightmares about the jump towers at Benning. Like they came to life like the skeleton of a t-rex.

etaa: O'course, Ft Hood is 1st cav, so it just HAS to be sort of depressing by nature.
