While participating in Alert 99, the battalion took part in over 30 recruiting events and helped recruit 60 new members. Lieutenant Reisz led the Alert 99 team. 380th members took part in this major recruiting drive at such events as The Classic Car Show, Thunder on the Ohio, River Festival, and the Westside Nut Club Fall Festival. Due to involvement with local area high schools, the battalion generated enough leads to add 30 new soldiers to its rosters. Overall, there has been an 11 percent rise in personnel strength.

The 281st Maintenance Company conducted annual training in and around Roswell, New Mexico. Though it was only at 40 percent strength, the company effectively and diligently supported the major air defense artillery exercise called Roving Sands. To improve its strength, the 281st is offering recruitment bonuses to new personnel who qualify.

During a recent tactical field training exercise, the 478th Engineer Company integrated paintball warfare into the training to create a high level of realism and excitement. The war games generated a high degree of motivation and moral.

The Radion Corporation, a government contracting agency, awarded the 417th QM Company (POL Terminal Ops) with the "Best Unit" award for its performance in terminal operations and its care and maintenance of 20 miles of pipeline. The unit was in competition with two other Army Reserve units and two active duty units.

The 425th QM Company (POL Supply) supported the 101st Air Assault Division at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana. The company distributed 50,000 gallons of fuel to helicopter operations.
