- After Action Report -
January, 27-29, 2012
From Friday, January 27-29, 2012, members and supporters of the National Socialist Movement conducted Operation Heimdallr along the Vekol Valley drug corridor south of Interstate 8 in the Sonoran Desert National Monument. During this same time period, The US Border Guard conducted Operation Midnight Star. Both organizations cooperated and successfully kept drug and human smugglers from exploiting our nation's public lands.
Volunteers from Arizona, California, Georgia, Oregon and Colorado helped make our southern border more secure than ever. I'm very pleased to report that Operation Heimdallr was a success. Follow up operations will be taking place during this week as there are still some UDA's still outstanding.
Once our camp was quickly erected, we commenced patrols. It didn't take long to discover signs of illegal aliens. I found a flashlight and a mop-like thing that was apparently used to brush away footprints in an an attempt to foil the US Border Patrol. As usual, we also found lots of clothing, backpacks, personal items and footprints.
A large group of equestrians arrived on Saturday morning and we went over to introduce ourselves. The horse riders were a little concerned about their vehicles. Since we had security people guarding our base camp, we offered to keep an eye on their vehicles while they enjoyed the day.
Drug smugglers once used to carelessly discard their dirty clothes and empty burlap sacks. Due to our patrols, the smugglers have been forced to work harder and take extra time. Now, they are hiding their refuse under bushes. Unfortunately, for the smugglers, we are still finding their stuff and gather information from it.
During a patrol along a wash just south of Interstate 8, we discovered the remains of a horse that was more than likely used to transport bales of marijuana from Mexico. Once the contraband is picked up, the horse is no longer needed and is simply left to die in the desert.
Early Saturday evening, I received a call from a US Border Guard volunteer who was operating in an area approximately 20 miles away from our base camp. He was requesting assistance at their location because a party of several illegal aliens was detected. We dropped everything and rapidly sent two vehicles with a squad to their location .
While we were in route to intercept the illegals, a US Border Patrol unit pulled up and asked for a status update. It soon became obvious that our familiarity with the area would become important. We guided the Border Patrol agents to the area in question. After wards, they thanked us for the assistance. The US Border Patrol also dispatched a helicopter to this remote location.
A female illegal alien was picked up for processing and deportation by the Border Patrol. Her traveling companions abandoned her out in the middle of nowhere to fend for herself. All she had were the clothes on her back. No water. No nothing. This sort of thing is nothing new to us. It's common for smugglers to sacrifice their own. They can always get more Mexicans.
With their keen hearing and sense of smell, K-9's are becoming more and more valuable on our patrols. Dogs are great for tracking and providing camp security. Bailey lives for these patrols. In all, four K-9's took part this weekend.
