The diversity of the Soldiers across the Army is it’s strength. It’s a wonderful opportunity to observe National Hispanic Heritage Month!

National Hispanic Heritage Month

The U.S. Army values the contributions of American Soldiers with ancestry from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. Hispanic Americans have not hesitated to defend and show their allegiance to this nation in many ways, but especially through military service. The Army and the U.S. draw strength from the diversity that makes up America's melting pot.

#HispanicHeritageMonth

Never forget.
09/11/2020

Never forget.

On Patriot Day, we solemnly remember the nearly 3,000 people who perished on September 11, 2001.

We honor the brave first responders who showed extraordinary courage to save others on that fateful day & the heroic men and women of our Armed Forces who fought in defense of our country in the aftermath of the largest terrorist attack on American soil.

Cobra Nation!

The company returned from the field yesterday after a great week of training in the Brigade Support Area. Training objectives included Medical Evacuation, Health Service Support (establishing a Role II Medical Treatment Facility), and Deployment Readiness Exercises (deliberate displacement of the Role II to a new location and convoy operations). From February to now, the company has spent many hours improving our systems and processes to make ourselves more of an asset to the Bulldog Brigade.

The next event? The “Super Bowl” of training events, a rotation at the National Training Center.

We also followed up with the promotion of PFC Hartrampf and PFC Kessler. Congrats Cobras, as the spotlight is on you for your significant accomplishments. #COBRANATION #CLTW #ironsupport

How To Motivate Employees? Don't.
Do this instead

The question leaders should start with isn’t, “How can I motivate my team?” but rather, “How can I create an environment for my team members to motivate themselves?”

The author argues that motivation is not a thing we give to people - motivation is a thing people already have. This article provides six recommendations for leaders to set conditions for team members to motivate themselves.

1. Immerse yourself in discovery.

2. Individualize everything.

3. Create a choice.

4. Stop surveillance.

5. Acknowledge constraints and feelings.

6. Clarify expectations.

Read the full article (link below) to understand the argument and recommendations. This makes sense to me and I have seen it work.

Do you agree with this idea? What alternative solution do you propose? How does this relate to the ideas of mutual trust and disciplined initiative?

Wisdom from GEN(R) Powell. #CLTW #AlwaysReady

Wisdom from GEN(R) Powell.
#CLTW #AlwaysReady

At the beginning of each day I read General Colin Powell’s Rules. This has been especially useful during our recent response in support of COVID-19.

1. It ain’t as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning.

2. Get mad, then get over it.

3. Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.

4. It can be done!

5. Be careful what you choose. You may get it.

6. Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.

7. You can’t make someone else’s choices. You shouldn’t let someone else make yours.

8. Check small things.

9. Share credit.

10. Remain calm. Be kind.

11. Have a vision. Be demanding.

12. Don’t take counsel of your fears or naysayers.

13. Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.

Taking care of yourself is important to maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

You’re not alone. Soldiers have a vast support network available, either in the company or resources in the brigade or across post, such as the Chaplain, Military Family Life Counselor, Army Communiy Service, Army Wellness Center, etc.

Seeking help is strength!

Effective immediately by order of the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Texas Commanding General, all Soldiers will wear masks while in uniform, both inside and outside buildings other than inside a Soldier's personal domicile or personal barracks room, regardless of the ability to socially distance themselves from others. This applies on and off-post. For Soldiers when in civilian attire, you are asked to wear a mask under those same conditions.

Soldiers will also wear the mask while in the Army's physical fitness uniform, unless you are conducting physical fitness training. Once Soldiers are done conducting PT, they will be required to immediately put the mask on and wear it.

To our Fort Bliss family members and community, while we cannot formally direct you to do so the same, we ask everyone to support and maintain this same level of protection to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This requirement will remain in place until further notice.

Excellent performance, dedication to the team, and pride in their craft are something that our Cobras hold to heart. Recently we had the opportunity to recognize achievements within our Company. Now SPC Carlos, SPC Jordan, SPC Sears, and PFC Peoples (who were all promoted) took another step in their Army Careers. We also had the opportunity to dedicate awards to Soldiers who have performed above and beyond to assist with #CobraNation’s success. SGT Zipperer, CPL Schwappach, SPC Betzhold, SPC Carlos, SPC Stovall, and PFC Anthony deserved this for upholding the Cobra's standard of excellence. We are proud of our Soldiers and congratulate them on their achievements. #CLTW #IronSoldiers #BulldogBrigade

Check out this COVID-19 info for El Paso. The virus is still present and a threat to Soldiers, families, and friends.

Remember to be safe when going out by utilizing face masks when you can’t maintain 6-ft social distancing.

#ProtecttheForce #CobraStrong #AlwaysReady

This morning, 284 new COVID-19 cases are being reported for a cumulative total of 5,614 positive cases. The total number of deaths remains at 127 and active cases significantly rise to 1,833.

Health officials advised the increase appears to be due in part to clusters in an elderly care facility and a detention facility. However, officials report the majority of today’s increase is likely owing to community spread. The Department of Public Health officials are working to provide the public with more details about these clusters and spikes in the coming days.

In case you didn’t know, you can go to the El Paso Stong website to get real-time updates on COVID cases, ICU beds occupied, ventilators on-hand/in-use as well as the latest amendments to policies put into place that affect you and your family’s ability to access certain facilities.

As of now, many restrictions have been lifted, but many off-post establishments still have minimum standard health protocols they must adhere to put out by the GOV of TX. As a result, many establishments have reduced occupancy. Look into the stats before you go out so you can plan accordingly.

#themoreyouknow #alwaysready #protecttheforce
