Timeline of Events:

Who contacted Fort Hood to inform them of the three missing soldiers who were fishing on Belton Lake? Did they have cell phones? Is their any service in the area? Were their cell phones lost and/or damaged when the canoes capsized? Did authorities find the cell phones? Did the soldier who escaped to safety have a working cell phone. Were the numbers pinged?

January 21, 2019: 

Three men were reported missing in the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA). One unidentified Fort Hood soldier was found alive; Army Sgt. Kelton Sphaler was found dead in 10 feet of water near shore; and Army veteran Scott Weinhold is still missing, search underway. Fort Hood and the Texas Game Wardens took the lead on the search for Scott. According to Hunter Davis of KXXV, three people went fishing at Belton Lake in two canoes. An unnamed soldier claimed he tipped his canoe and Scott Weinhold and Sgt. Kelton Sphaler tipped their canoes in an attempt to help him. The unnamed soldier was able to swim to safety.

Fort Hood Fallen Facebook Post (January 22, 2019)

According to the Fort Hood Fallen, family search teams found Scott’s belongings and Scott’s father was able to identify his belongings on site as part of the search team. First they found his tackle box and about 20 minutes later, they found his coat with the sleeves inside out. The Fort Hood Fallen also learned that a man in the Coast Guard and his wife volunteered to help look for Scott but were turned away by authorities who threatened to arrest them if they violated their directive.

That would tell us he’s on land,’ Campos explains. Now they think he is in the water somewhere and are now using a tail fish mechanism to find him.” -CenTexProud.com

Army Soldiers at Fort Hood in Texas Are Dying at Alarming Rates Stateside

ft-hood

In the last 3 years from January 2016 to January 2019, Fort Hood on average lost 35 soldiers a year. If you divide 35 by 12 months, that’s an average of 3 soldiers a month. We must find out why so we can prevent these untimely deaths and save the precious lives and futures of these mostly young soldiers. The average age at time of death is 28 years old and each death has a ripple effect on the families, friends, and communities left behind. 

Fort Hood, Texas (U.S. Army)

  • 107 deaths at Fort Hood since January 2016
  • 4 insider attacks in Afghanistan
  • 1 non combat death (suicide), Iraq
  • 1 non combat death (suicide), Korea
  • 1 non combat related incident, Iraq
  • 100 stateside non combat deaths
    • 5 homicides off post (2 unsolved)
    • 17 found dead on post
    • 24 found dead off post
    • 14 died in training accidents
    • 7 died from medical issues
    • 7 died in motorcycle accidents
    • 5 died in automobile accidents
    • 3 died in a swimming/boating accident
    • 2 died unexpectedly out of state
    • 1 declared dead after missing for 2 months
    • 1 shot self after Killeen PD ‘wellness check’
    • 1 civilian/veteran found dead at BLORA
    • 13 passed away while stationed at Fort Hood

We have been working in real time in an effort to collect the information of the soldiers we have lost stateside and overseas. We started these efforts a few years ago and are now just pulling things together by base. Fort Hood has come up enough in on-line research to warrant investigations into a recurring problem with untimely deaths in the form of training accidents, vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, suicide, violent crime, non combat death, insider attacks, and unknown causes of death. We noticed a large spike in soldier death in November 2016 when we learned that four soldiers died stateside at Fort Hood and two died in a suicide bombing on a protected base in Afghanistan at the start of a Veteran’s Day “fun run.” Allan Brown eventually succumbed to his injuries from the blast in December 2016. And because we track military crime and suspicious death cases both stateside and overseas, we observe far more untimely death when looking at the big picture.

We kept up with November 2016 and honored the service members we lost that month. Since then, we have lost many more Fort Hood soldiers which is why we created this post. There has been an unusually high cluster of deaths at one base in the last few years. The Army announced they were going to probe the unusually high death counts but like most things, the report will come back with some canned response to protect the Chain of Command. We are doing our own probe because we care and we want to find ways to learn from the past in an effort to save lives. After doing a google search ‘Soldier Found Dead Fort Hood’ we learned that 2016 was a tough year for the post and surrounding area in general. We want to acknowledge the families who have lost their loved ones. We want to acknowledge the service and sacrifice of the soldiers who have died. We want to acknowledge the soldiers who were impacted by the untimely deaths of their fellow soldiers. It can’t be easy for a post to lose one soldier, let alone over one hundred in three years. Please help us honor The Fort Hood Fallen and support their friends and family on Facebook.

Update (January 26, 2019):

There are no words right now for how incredibly sad it is for us to post this today. We not only care about these soldiers (and veterans) who have passed at Fort Hood but we care deeply for the families, friends and troops left behind. We share this with you so you will understand the magnitude of the issues we have with untimely, stateside deaths in an effort to honor those who have passed and learn from it so we can find ways to prevent it from happening to others.

We are especially disappointed with Fort Hood leadership who made the decision to stop providing the public with press releases notifying us of the death of a soldier in March 2018. The Ft. Hood Fallen gently reminded all of us, it actually does a disservice to the families who need the community’s support and love at one of the most difficult times in their lives. Ultimately, it should be up to the families to make that decision and it comes at a time when we are laser focused on III Corps and Fort Hood, because we care.
