GAFFNEY

Post-Standard, The (Syracuse, NY) – April 23, 2009

Christopher P. Gaffney

January 4, 2009

A graveside committal service with full military honors will be held Saturday, April 25 at 9:30 a.m. in Pulaski Cemetery for Christopher P. Gaffney who died January 4, 2009.

Only the dead have seen the end of war – For one soldier who fought for country and profit, it was all too much

Post-Standard, The (Syracuse, NY) – April 26, 2009

On Jan. 4, Chris Gaffney shot himself. He was 26.

Since his late teens, he’d been at war almost non-stop — with the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, and with the security company Blackwater in Iraq. In some ways, he started battling long before that.

His Blackwater work brought him sudden wealth. In his first year with the security company, he took home $192,000, more money than his father ever earned from his landscaping business and more than many Army generals make.

What does a 22-year-old do with that kind of money? Gaffney indulged, paying cash for a $13,000 Rolex watch, a $16,000 Harley and a Humvee. He bought gifts, dinners, drinks for friends, drinks for friends of friends. It was Gaffney’s way of rewarding himself for unspeakable sacrifice, a way to feel connected to a world from which he grew further apart every time he returned to Iraq.

In the weeks since the death, friends and family have combed their memories for signs they may have missed. Gaffney gave no indication of depression, they say, no indication he might take his life. In fact, those closest to him insist he didn’t willfully take his life, that it was a horrible accident.

“He had too many plans in life,” said Brad Ebert, a friend. “He felt comfortable around guns. So when he accidentally shot himself … I don’t know exactly what happened. Nobody knows what was going through his mind.”

Headstrong from the start

Boy or man — descriptions of Chris Gaffney start the same: confident and competitive, hardworking, a talented athlete, stubborn with a temper, likable with lots of friends.

In Pulaski, he was a Little League all-star. In middle school, where most of his close friends first met him, even older kids sought his company. At Pulaski High School, he ran track and played football. In basketball, he made co-captain and wore “22,” his father’s number at Tupper Lake High School.

In summers, he worked for his father’s landscaping business. At 17, he ran a mowing crew, supervising guys years older than himself. He was a chip off the old block, a point of pride for both, and a problem.

“We were so much alike,” Dan Gaffney said. “We never got along. Never, never, never, never.”

Sent to his room by his father for mouthing off at age 12, Chris escaped through a window. Coming home past curfew as a teenager, he defiantly confronted his father, went to his room and punched a hole in the wall.

“He was always very headstrong,” said his mother, Mary Kay Gaffney.

As a senior at Pulaski, Gaffney had plans to attend Jefferson Community College and play basketball. Pulaski qualified for the sectionals that year. In a sectional game against Cato-Meridian, Dan Gaffney was in the bleachers. Pulaski lost and Dad yelled at his son that he wasn’t hustling. A week later, Chris announced he had changed his plans.

“You’ll never have to worry about me playing basketball again,” his father remembers Chris saying. “I just joined the Army.”

As a military police officer in Iraq, Sgt. Gaffney would cordon off streets after bomb blasts. He later confided to friends he was troubled by recurring images of dead bodies and body parts at bomb sites, where he would stand guard for hours.

Gaffney had barely returned from Iraq when he volunteered for Afghanistan. The Army sent him for 13 months. Consecutive missions in Iraq and Afghanistan kept him away from home two years. Between the ages of 18 and 20, he didn’t see his parents at all.

When he did come home, at least one friend noticed a difference.

“I think it aged him very harshly,” Chris Stewart said. “He was a boy before he joined the Army. When I saw him again, just the look in the eyes. Around friends he would smile. But otherwise, he was in the zone.”

War’s high wages

After completing his Army commitment, Gaffney tried private security work at home. He also applied to two security companies working in Iraq and Afghanistan — DynCorp and Blackwater. Both were making millions doing the sorts of things that in past wars had been done by soldiers — guarding officials and training local police and soldiers. Gaffney chose Blackwater.

Getting the job was a long shot. Blackwater liked to hire Navy Seals, Green Berets and Army Rangers — soldiers with lots of high-risk missions under their belts. Gaffney didn’t have those credentials. Friends and family had doubts, but Gaffney was confident.

“He was like, ‘Dude, you don’t know me,’” Stewart said.

With Blackwater, Gaffney guarded U.S. diplomats. At every opportunity he volunteered to extend his missions, just as he had in the Army. The big difference now was the money.

His first year with Blackwater, an entire year in Iraq, he brought home $192,000. In 2008 he brought home $178,000, according to his tax records.

Blackwater has since lost its contract in Iraq and changed its name to Xe. The Iraqi government denied Blackwater a license to operate there amid lingering anger over a September 2007 shooting in Baghdad that left 17 Iraqi civilians dead.

Living the dream

When Gaffney could, he partied.

He referred to leave as his “30-day weekend,” said Dave Baron, a friend.

“He was all about having fun,” said Joe Marche, a Blackwater colleague. “He would walk into a bar and if someone didn’t have the money, he was buying.”

In Central New York, a quick phone call or text from Gaffney gathered friends at Pier 57, in Liverpool, his favorite bar. They’d play darts and drink buckets of Corona.

For himself and a lot of people, Gaffney was “living the dream.” Appearing cool and unflappable, he inspired friends.

“He encouraged me to be true to myself,” Stewart said. “He told me, ‘If that’s your dream, you’ve got to find a way to make it happen.’ ”

At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Gaffney cut a strong, lean profile. Weightlifting and protein shakes had made his upper arms massive — his left bicep had an entire 60-word prayer tattooed on it.

After the bar closed, friends would head to his home nearby.

In 2007, Gaffney paid $95,500 for a two-story townhouse. He wasn’t there much, so Stewart watched over things, stocking the refrigerator with beer, shrimp and pizza rolls for his return. Stewart made sure Gaffney’s Harley was ready to ride and oversaw a $35,000 renovation: hardwood floors, a remodeled kitchen and built-in, big-screen TVs. He carefully hung the $250 painting of Johnny Cash — middle finger extended in defiance. Gaffney wanted it to be the first thing visitors saw.

If Gaffney was ever haunted by things he saw or did at war, he rarely talked about it.

But the horrors were never far away. On his computer he kept a file of photos he called “Dead Iraqis” — scenes of twisted, bloody vehicles, charred and split-open bodies.

“It was kind of an unspoken thing between him and I,” said Amanda Weigand, a friend. “I knew he saw bad things. I wasn’t going to ask him about it.”

‘I make a difference’

In December, Blackwater fired Gaffney.

Alcohol and an argument were involved. Versions of the story vary. Gaffney told friends he was drinking on his base in Baghdad and a Blackwater colleague reported him. He told his parents he’d been drinking and argued with a superior.

Blackwater would not comment on Gaffney’s case. A spokeswoman said Blackwater, now Xe, has a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol use by contractors overseas.

Ebert, the friend, said Gaffney told him the Blackwater workers commonly drank together.

Gaffney was ordered to surrender his weapons and was confined to his room for four days, his father said.

He felt betrayed by the colleague who reported him, he told friends.

“It’s a good thing I’m not one to off myself, because this whole situation is pissing me off,” he said in a phone call to his girlfriend, Alica Anchor.

In e-mails with Anchor, he cosidered reapplying for another Blackwater job.

“I really wanted this job ’cause it’s something i did before and was good at and i actually fell like i make a difference,” he wrote.

On his way back to the U.S., he stopped in the Mideast country of Jordan, hired a driver and traveled for two weeks, making friends along the way. He bought over-the-counter sleeping pills there and got a tattoo. He had one put on his right bicep:

“Only the dead have seen the end of war.”

‘Karma’ and despair

Arriving home two weeks before Christmas, Gaffney connected with friends at Pier 57 and at the End Zone, a bar in Pulaski. He visited his old high school counselor, Joseph McGrath, the principal at Pulaski Junior-Senior High School. They chatted nearly an hour. Gaffney said nothing about losing his job.

He spent Christmas with his parents and told them he was seeking work with Blackwater in Afghanistan.

The TV news aired a piece about the war in Afghanistan.

“Chris, you don’t want to go there,” his father said.

“Don’t tell me what I can do,” he said.

“What do you have, a death wish?” his father asked.

Angry, Chris left for the End Zone. It was the last time his parents would see him alive.

The days following were a roller coaster of drinking, late hours and exhaustion for Gaffney.

On Dec. 30, Gaffney went to Halo Tattoos, in Liverpool, to get what would be his last tattoo — “Karma” on his left wrist.

On New Year’s Eve, more partying. He didn’t sleep until 3 p.m., Anchor said.

On Saturday, Jan. 3, Anchor said goodbye to Gaffney and left for her nursing job in Brockport. They planned in four days to go snowboarding in Vermont. He had new equipment, still in the box.

Stewart didn’t hear from Gaffney on Jan. 4. Around 8 p.m., Gaffney and two friends (Erik Hibbert and John Briggs) went to the Pier.

Gaffney was sullen, said Amanda Weigand, the friend who worked as a hostess that night at the Pier. He talked about a friend who had recently died in Iraq and showed her his latest tattoos.

“Those are pretty meaningful,” she said.

“To me they are.”

She tried to console him. He wanted her to sit with him, but she was working. Gaffney and his friends were in no shape to drive, so they got a ride to his town house about a mile away.

Outside his town house, he again talked about a buddy who had died in Iraq, and he cried, said a friend. Just inside the door, Gaffney punched a hole in the wall. He phoned two friends to come over. He didn’t sound right, they said, and they drove toward his town house. Usually it’s a 10-minute drive, but the roads were icy.

He texted Weigand, still hostessing at the Pier.

“Sorry about today… friends where lost,” he wrote.

Weigand didn’t recognize Gaffney’s phone number.

“Huh?’’ she replied.

“H I H,” he texted.

Minutes later the Smith & Wesson that Gaffney usually kept in a small gun safe fired. Briggs and Hibbert ran from the living room to the kitchen, where Gaffney was slumped in a corner by the counter. They knelt beside him. Briggs gave him CPR. They called 911. Corona, Gaffney’s boxer, barked and barked.

Surrounded and alone

What did Gaffney mean in his last text message, “H I H”? That can be shorthand for “Hope it helps.” Or were they simply scrambled letters?

“He wasn’t one to know texting lingo,” Anchor said.

Unanswerable questions gnaw at Gaffney’s old circles. Some wonder if they could have made a difference.

“I was so proud of him, and I don’t think I ever told him I loved him,” Dan Gaffney said.

“Maybe we could have changed something,” Weigand said.

“What amazes me,” Stewart said, “is he was absolutely surrounded by people, but all by himself.” Gaffney’s parents have been connecting with their son’s former Blackwater teammates and with his longtime friends, learning things they never knew, including some of his darkest nightmares.

“He couldn’t sleep some nights, seeing images of exploded body parts,” his father said.

Dan Gaffney called Blackwater to ask why the company never provided any counseling for his son. A Blackwater official told him there was “no indication anything was bothering Chris,” he said

That doesn’t sit right with the Gaffneys. Neither does the fact that Blackwater, which employed him for three years, has not acknowledged his death.

“It’s like once Chris left, he doesn’t exist,” said Dan Gaffney.

For friends and family, Chris Gaffney very much exists.

At the Pier, where a collage of Gaffney photos hangs on a wall, Chris Stewart orders a Corona for his buddy, a bottle of beer that nobody drinks.

And in the early morning darkness in Pulaski, Dan Gaffney parks (NOTE: PART OF THE TEXT WAS LEFT OFF IN THE HARD COPY OF THE NEWSPAPER. , FOLLOWING IS THE END OF THE STORY.)

And in the early morning darkness in Pulaski, Dan Gaffney parks his plow truck by the cemetery vault where his son’s body rests. He erupts in sobs. Then, just like the old days, the father tries to buck up the son. “Buddy,” he says, “we’re going to get through this.”

About Blackwater

Xe, formerly Blackwater, provides security and air transportation for diplomats in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Since its founding in 1997, the company has received roughly $1.25 billion in federal contracts. In 2008, Blackwater had 968 workers in Iraq , according to a Congressional Research report.

In January, Iraqi officials denied Blackwater a license to operate in the country. However, Xe (pronounced “Zee”) personnel continue doing security work in Iraq and are scheduled to remain in the country under some contracts until September, the Associated Press reported.

The company has been shifting its focus to other business, including international training and air support in places such as Afghanistan and Africa, the AP said.

Staff and news service report

THIS PRAYER was tattooed on Chris Gaffney’s bicep.

Saint Michael the Archangel,

defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –

by the Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Contractors and suicides

There are no hard numbers for how many security contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan have taken their lives.

Unlike military veterans, who can get help through the government health care system when they return from war, private contractors with psychological problems are largely on their own, said Paul Brand, a psychologist and former vice president of human resources at DynCorp, a security company working in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“They’re not employees, they are contractors,” he said. “These guys just fall off the ledge. Unless there’s a notable injury, there’s no obligation for the company.”

Anne Tyrrell, a spokeswoman for Xe, formerly Blackwater, said the company encourages employees to “seek support when needed.”

Compounding the problem is that many security contractors are reluctant to seek help.

“Tough guys are less inclined to admit they have a problem, because it makes it seem they’re less tough,” Brand said. “And it can interfere with employment opportunities in the future. They’re fearful there might be a record somewhere.”

HOLTHOUSE

Post-Standard, The (Syracuse, NY) – September 2, 2010

Barbara C. Holthouse

September 1, 2010

Barbara C. Holthouse, 92, of Pulaski, passed away Wednesday at her home.

In a favorite picture from her childhood, Barbara C. Holthouse stands in a beautiful garden with her younger brother, Frank. They are smiling, youthful and full of life. In 2007 Frank passed away, and on September 1, 2010, Barbara, 92, went home to meet her Heavenly Father and is once again standing in that garden with her brother she loved so deeply.

Barbara, our beloved mother, grandmother and friend, was born May 26, 1918, in Syracuse. She was the daughter of Frank Roscoe Church Sr. and Yula Marr Smith. After graduating from Oswego High School in 1936, Barbara attended Syracuse Secretarial School. She worked as executive secretary at Columbia Mills in Minetto. It was there she met her future husband, Milton H. Holthouse. They were married on June 26, 1943. Through their lives together, they owned and operated retail stores in Syracuse, Oswego, Lyons, Carthage, DeRuyter and Dolgeville. In 1960 they, along with their three children, moved to Pulaski and opened the Pulaski Department Store. Several years later, they opened The Yarn Shoppe two doors down.

Milton fell in the 1970s, and Barbara devoted her life to his care until his death on May 1, 1979. The family continued operating the Pulaski businesses until 1986.

Following Milton’s death, she focused her attention on her grandchildren and became instrumental in their lives. She never missed a concert, recital, awards ceremony or graduation and regularly kept in touch through visits, letters and phone calls.

For 50 years, Barbara was an active and dedicated member of the Pulaski Baptist Church. She sang in the choir, served as church clerk, secretary and historian and was Sunday school superintendent as well as a teacher. She spent thousands of hours assisting with church operations over the years, and shortly before her death she could even be seen folding church bulletins though she didn’t have the strength to stand. Barbara always had a smile on her face and extended a helping hand to members of the church. Whether giving children rides to Sunday school, praying for those in need or being the first to greet a new face in the congregation, Barbara never failed to follow the teachings of her Lord Jesus Christ.

She further contributed to the Pulaski community by serving on the board of directors of Springbrook Apartments and as a member of the Eastern Star and Tuesday Study Club. Barbara was an avid reader and spent many countless hours in the kitchen baking cookies, pies and meals for those she loved.

Her cheerful demeanor, thoughtfulness and generosity will be missed by all who knew her.

Barbara is survived by her sons, Gary (Barbara) Holthouse of Oswego and Lynn (Judy) Holthouse of Pulaski; her daughter, Barbara (Jim) of Altmar; seven grandchildren, two-great grandchildren; three step-grandchildren; seven stepgreat-grandchildren; her sister-in-law, Norma Church of Scriba; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Monday at Foster-Hax Funeral Home, 52 Park Street, Pulaski, with burial in Pulaski Cemetery. Calling hours will be 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

Donations may be made in Barbara’s name to the Pulaski Baptist Church, 7 Bridge Street, Pulaski.
