September 11 - National Day of Service and Remembrance
In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, President George W. Bush proclaimed Friday, 14 September 2001, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on 11 September 2001.

An official bill to make 11 September a national day of mourning was introduced in the U.S. House on October 25, 2001. The result was the resolution to proclaim 11 September 2002 as the first Patriot Day in memory of the people killed in the September 11 attacks.

National Day of Service and Remembrance was launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups who established a charitable service day as a way to honor the sacrifice of those who were lost and those who united in response to the tragedy.

As a result of their efforts, the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance was established into law by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act in 2009.

On the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we honor those by making today a day of service & remembrance. The U.S. flag is flown at half-mast at the White House and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments throughout the world.

Annually, people of all ages and backgrounds participate in activities to pay tribute to 9/11 survivors and heroes as we honor their memory by joining together for various service projects to help meet their community needs.

Today and every day, we will never forget. We will always remember.

September is National Su***de Prevention Month

National Su***de Prevention month is a time when medical and mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite together to promote su***de prevention awareness both locally and abroad.

World Su***de Prevention Day is September 10. It’s a time to remember those affected by su***de, to raise awareness, and to focus efforts on directing treatment to those who need it most.

National Su***de Prevention Week is the Monday through Sunday surrounding World Su***de Prevention Day. It’s a time to share resources and stories as well as to promote su***de prevention awareness.

Su***de is difficult and tragic, but can also be preventable. Awareness about the warning signs for su***de and how to get help can help save lives. Taking these steps can help too:

1. ASK: “How are you doing today?”, “Are you in crisis?”, “What can I do for you right now?”, and “How can I help you?” are good questions to ask.

2. KEEP THEM SAFE: Though not easy, reducing a person’s access to highly lethal items or places is an important part of su***de prevention.

3. BE THERE: Listen carefully and learn what the individual is thinking and feeling.

4. HELP THEM CONNECT: Save the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline’s (1-800-273-TALK (8255) and the Crisis Text Line’s number (741741) in your phone for when you need it. Help the individual to make a connection with a trusted individual like a friend, spiritual advisor, or mental health professional.

5. STAY CONNECTED: Staying in touch after a crisis or after being discharged from care can make a difference.

6. SAFETY PLANNING: Personalized safety planning has been shown to help reduce suicidal thoughts and actions.

If you know someone in crisis, call the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline (Lifeline) at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or text the Crisis Text Line (text HELLO to 741741). Both services are free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For the deaf and hard of hearing, please contact the Lifeline via TTY at 1-800-799-4889. All calls are confidential. Dial 911 in case of an emergency.

The Veterans Crisis Line connects Servicemembers and Veterans in crisis as well as their family members and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text messaging service. Dial 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1 to talk to someone or send a text message to 838255 to connect with a VA responder. Confidential online chat session can be initiated at veteranscrisisline.net/get-help/chat.

Our JBM-HH Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC) is also available to provide assistance and services when needed.

Our MFLC program now offers telephone and video non-medical counseling in addition to face-to-face non-medical counseling (social distancing is observed).

MFLC virtual services are available daily, Monday-Friday and our MFLC can be reached at (571) 733-0251.

What can be expected from non-medical counseling?

Our MFLC can help with the following:

• Managing stress and changes at home due to COVID-19 • Goal setting • Adjusting to deployment and reintegration • Preparing to move or adjusting after a move • Strengthening relationships • Managing problems at work • Grieving the death of a loved one or colleague • Leader/Command team consultations and support regarding the issues above.

Celebrating and honoring Labor Day!

Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September in any given year (i.e. a single day from 1-7 September 1) to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.

It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend. Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, street parades and athletic events.

Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. "Labor Day" was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City.

In 1887, Oregon was the first state of America to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty states in America officially celebrated Labor Day.

In honor of this special day, JBM-HH ACS is closed today. If you need AER or have an AER emergency, please call 1-877-272-7337 for assistance.

Today, we celebrate Women's Equality Day, which is celebrated annually on 26 August, which is today.

This special day commemorates the addition of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution that guaranteed women their right to vote in elections. The passage of the 19th Amendment was the first step towards shaping gender equality in the work force.

In 1948, an important step was made when then President Harry Truman signed the Women's Armed Services Integration Act into law, which granted women permanent status in the regular and reserve forces of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force.

In honoring Women's Equality Day today, all of our service branches are recognizing the importance of women and their many contributions not just for today, but every day!
