87th Training Division:

As we approach the joyous holiday season and bid farewell to the current year, I want to extend my heartfelt season's greetings to each of you in the 87TD. Your dedication and sacrifice do not go unnoticed, and your commitment to service is commendable.

During this festive time, as we celebrate the spirit of Christmas and welcome the New Year with hope and anticipation, it is crucial to prioritize our physical well-being and mental and spiritual health. Your resilience and strength are invaluable, and taking care of your holistic well-being is essential for the challenges ahead.

Mental Well-being:
During your demanding responsibilities, please take a moment to reflect on the achievements of the past year and the bonds forged within the division. Reach out to your comrades, share experiences, and lend a supportive ear to those needing it. Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, and resources are available for mental health support.

Spiritual Well-being:
Consider taking time for personal reflection and connection with your beliefs in the spirit of the season. Whether through prayer, meditation, or participating in spiritual gatherings within the division, nurturing your spiritual well-being can provide strength and solace.

Physical Well-being:
Maintaining physical health is crucial for the demanding tasks ahead. Stay active, prioritize regular exercise, and make mindful choices regarding nutrition. Ensure you get adequate rest to recharge both your body and mind.

Travel Safety:
If you travel during the holidays, exercise caution on the roads and adhere to all safety guidelines. Plan your journeys well in advance, avoid unnecessary risks, and stay vigilant to ensure a safe return to your loved ones.

Cooking Safety:
As many of you gather with family and friends, please be mindful of cooking safety. Take precautions in the kitchen and ensure that cooking equipment is used correctly. Fire safety is paramount, so have fire extinguishers and know their operation.

I express my deepest gratitude for your unwavering commitment and service. May this holiday season bring you moments of joy, peace, and the warmth of camaraderie. Here's to a safe and fulfilling holiday season and a New Year filled with prosperity and success.

Wishing you all the best,

Pride Month Historical Spotlight

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) was an American politician and the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California, as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

Milk moved to San Francisco in 1972 and opened a camera store. Although he had been restless, holding an assortment of jobs and changing addresses frequently, he settled in the Castro, a neighborhood that at the time was experiencing a mass immigration of gay men and le****ns. He was compelled to run for city supervisor in 1973, though he encountered resistance from the existing gay political establishment. His campaign was compared to theater; he was brash, outspoken, animated, and outrageous, earning media attention and votes, although not enough to be elected. He campaigned again in the next two supervisor elections, dubbing himself the "Mayor of Castro Street". Voters responded enough to warrant his running for the California State Assembly as well. Taking advantage of his growing popularity, he led the gay political movement in fierce battles against anti-gay initiatives. Milk was elected city supervisor in 1977 after San Francisco reorganized its election procedures to choose representatives from neighborhoods rather than through city-wide ballots.

Milk served almost eleven months in office, during which he sponsored a bill banning discrimination in public accommodations, housing, and employment on the basis of sexual orientation. The Supervisors passed the bill by a vote of 11–1, and it was signed into law by Mayor George Moscone. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, a disgruntled former city supervisor who cast the sole vote against Milk's bill.

Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the LGBT community. In 2002, Milk was called "the most famous and most significant openly LGBT official ever elected in the United States". Anne Kronenberg, his final campaign manager, wrote of him: "What set Harvey apart from you or me was that he was a visionary. He imagined a righteous world inside his head and then he set about to create it for real, for all of us." Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
