Announcement from the Commanding General, 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Maj. Gen. Sean Bernabe:

Unfortunately, COVID infection rates in the El Paso area continue to increase. To protect the force and to remain in alignment with our city partners, I have directed additional measures for the Fort Bliss Community.

Effective immediately, Fort Bliss will operate at essential services only. We have closed Biggs Park, Underwood Golf Course, Bowling Center, Centennial Club, Soldiers Activity Center/Warrior Zone, and Tennis Courts. The Child Development Centers will operate at current levels; Fitness Centers, and lap swim at the Aquatic Center remain open, however, no instructor-led classes and no change to Army Community Service services. The main Exchange, Shoppettes, Military Clothing Sales, Commissary, Class VI, and Barbershops will remain open. Restaurants and Freedom Crossing will be limited to 25% capacity. All other retail stores will be closed.

William Beaumont Army Medical Center remains postured to provide medical support to the Fort Bliss installation and all eligible beneficiaries. We have taken prudent measures to maintain our ability to treat patients and ensure appropriate levels of supplies. These measures include cancellation and suspension of all elective procedures and realignment of assets to increase capacity at the main hospital.

The Health Protection Condition at Fort Bliss remains at Level Charlie. This means we continue to keep the following measures: social distancing, reducing exposure and personal contact, washing hands regularly, and wearing face masks.

These collective restrictions keep us in-step with El Paso City Officials so that we are good neighbors. These measures are in place to protect the force and balance readiness requirements.

The operation was planned as a pincer movement, with U.S. landings on Morocco’s Atlantic coast and Anglo-American landings on Algeria’s Mediterranean coast (Center and Eastern task forces—Oran, Algiers). There was also a battalion-sized airborne landing near Oran with the mission to seize two airfields. The primary objective of the Allied landings was to secure bridgeheads for opening a second front to the rear of German and Italian forces battling the British in Libya and Egypt.

On May 11, 1942. The 1st Armored Division boarded the HMS Queen Mary at the New York Port of Embarkation and set sail for Ireland.

Born January 15, 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister and social activist who led the civil rights movement in the United States from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. His leadership was fundamental to the movement's success in ending the legal segregation of African Americans in the South and other parts of the United States. In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the driving forces behind the March for Jobs and Freedom, more commonly known as the “March on Washington,” which drew over a quarter-million people to the National Mall. It was at this march that Dr. King delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, which cemented his status as a social change leader and helped inspire the nation to act on civil rights. He was later named Time magazine’s “Man of the Year.” In 1964, at 35 years old, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. His acceptance speech in Oslo is thought by many to be among the most powerful remarks ever delivered at the event, climaxing at one point with the oft-quoted phrase “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Starting in World War I and again in World War II, the U.S. military employed a number of American Indian servicemen to use their tribal languages as a military code that could not be broken by the enemy. These “code talkers” came from many different tribes, including Chippewa, Choctaw, Creek, Crow, Comanche, Hopi, Navajo, Seminole, and Sioux. During World War II, the Navajos constituted the largest component within that elite group.
