A message from the IMCOM command team, LTG David Halverson and CSM Jeff Hartless:

We celebrate Labor Day across the country to recognize the achievements of American workers and the contributions they made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. Our Army has ample reasons to be especially proud of the work you do every day on behalf of Soldiers and Families. You deserve a day off and should take the time to enjoy this holiday weekend -but do it with appropriate planning and awareness for safety.

Many of us will celebrate this occasion with family and friends. Holiday celebrations often mean more travel and increased recreational activities which increases the risk of accidents. Let us use effective risk assessments and countermeasures to help prevent accidents on and off duty this Labor Day.

Privately owned vehicle accidents present the greatest threat to our safety. All IMCOM Soldiers should use the TRiPS system prior to driving long distances. The link is found at https://safety.army.mil/.

As with every holiday, civil authorities will be out on the roads to ensure highways are safe from impaired drivers. Implement the Army Values of Integrity and Honor in doing what is right. Do not drink and drive. Get plenty of rest. Put down the cell phone. Your contributions to the IMCOM Family are invaluable and we need you back safely.

While enjoying water-related activities, remember that with these activities comes added responsibilities. Do not swim alone and only swim in approved swimming areas. When temperatures are extreme, take necessary precautions to reduce the possibility of heat injuries by drinking plenty of water, using sun screen and not over doing outdoor activities.

With your diligence, IMCOM will continue the tradition of excellence and safety - plan and prepare for your holiday activities and look out for one another. CSM Hartless and I are honored to serve with each of you. Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!

Army Strong!
