“We don’t go anywhere or do anything without the National Guard. We can’t do what we do as an Army without the National Guard.” - GEN James McConville, U.S. Army Chief of Staff

The National Guard celebrates its 386th birthday on December 13, highlighting more than three centuries of service that began prior to the founding of the United States.

In 1636, the general court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony ordered the organization of the colony’s scattered militia companies into the North, South and East Regiments.

Unique in the U.S. military, the Guard has a dual federal/ state mission. Its primary task is the federal mission as the combat reserve force of the Army and Air Force.

The Army National Guard provides 39 percent of the Army’s operational forces and includes approximately 330,000 soldiers in 2,300 communities, ensuring continued combat capability and the ability to respond at home.

12/01/2022

Private motor vehicle mishaps result in more Soldier fatalities than any other type of mishap, not just during the holidays, but year-round. Many Soldiers will experience the “get-home-itis” once their leave date rolls around. Speeding, failure to wear seat belts and alcohol use being the greatest contributing factors in holiday leave fatalities.

Safety is such a constant part of a Soldier’s Army life. Leaders at all levels should engage their Soldiers and talk about the decisions they make and why they make them, both on and off duty. Engaged and effective leaders, even while away from their subordinates, can influence behaviors. A safe, mishap-free holiday begins well before Soldiers begin their travels.

In order to assist leaders with making every Soldier aware of the off-duty hazards they will face in the upcoming months; the U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center updated the safety awareness presentation. The Off-Duty Safety Awareness Presentation 2022 assists in making every Soldier aware of the off-duty hazards they face in the upcoming months so they can become part of the solution in preventing the next mishap.

Service of our Civilian Aides
The Legacy of Service of our Civilian Aides to the Secretary of the Army (CASAs) is a patriotic history of volunteering and dedication to the men and women of our Army. Their impact is worldwide and a century in the making as we celebrate and honor the volunteer service of CASAs for 100 years.

Civilian Aides are unpaid volunteers appointed by the Secretary of the Army to advise and support Army leaders, Soldiers, civilians, and our families across the country. We have approximately 125 CASAs in our 50 states and territories in which the #1 priority for CASAs is to support recruiting. CASAs assist connecting recruiters with community partners within their spheres of influence, and help transitioning Soldiers and their families.

The 2nd Infantry Division was organized on 26 October 1917, at Bourmont, Haute Marne, France. Twice during “The Great War” the Division was commanded by Marine Corps Generals, marking the only times in U.S.Military history when Marine Corps officers commanded an Army Division.

With the onset of World War II, the Division moved to Ireland in October 1943, as part of the build up for Operation Overlord, the Normandy invasion and on 7 June 1944, D-day + 1, the Division landed on Omaha Beach.

The Division arrived in Korea, via Pusan, on 23 July 1950, becoming the first unit to reach Korea directly from the United States. The Warrior Division was the first unit to break out of the Pusan Perimeter and led the Eighth Army‘s Drive to The Manchurian Border.

On 1 July 1965, the Division’s color returned to the Republic of Korea. The 2nd Infantry Division was assigned to guard portions of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and help deter war on the peninsula. Throughout the 1980 and early 1990s, Soldiers of the 2nd Infantry Division continued to patrol along the DMZ.

The first element of the 2nd Infantry Division to deploy to Operation Iraqi Freedom was the 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, deploying out of Fort Lewis beginning in November 2003.

The 2nd Infantry Division is the last permanently forward-stationed division in the U.S. Army. As part of the great ROK (Republic of Korea) -U.S. Alliance, the Division’s mission is to deter aggression, and if deterrence fails, ensure it is ready to “Fight Tonight” to defend the Republic of Korea.

In October, the United States commemorates National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) to herald the contributions and innovations of persons with disabilities to our country’s workforce.

A workforce inclusive of persons with disabilities is critical to achieve broad-based economic growth around the world. An accessible workplace with strong disability policies enables persons with disabilities to fully contribute to an organization’s mission.

Advancing disability inclusion is the work of all of us, not only employees with disabilities. Our national security and our shared prosperity depend on it.

October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

About 1 in 8 women in the United States will have breast cancer during their lifetime. Almost everyone will know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. The good news is that improvements in early detection and treatment have increased breast cancer survival rates.

The American Cancer Society guidelines for women at average risk for breast cancer:
- Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year.
- Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
- Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms based on risk factors and personal preference.
- Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live at least 10 more years.

For more information on breast cancer, contact your primary care team or go to https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast/
