WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY

August 26th is celebrated in the United States to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.

It was first celebrated in 1972, designated by Congress in 1973, and is proclaimed each year by the United States President.

Women of the 1-501st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion "Iron Dragons" came together to celebrate National Women’s Equality Day.

Today marks the 100th anniversary! We’re thankful for the women who serve not only in 1AD but across the U.S. Army.

Additionally, SSG Holmes utilized his expertise on conducting crew level maintenance to assist other gunnery crews with preparing and maintaining their vehicles to the best of his ability. SSG Holmes’ dedication to his craft and strong leadership played a significant role in the overall success of Bravo Company 1st Battalion, 35th Armored Regiment gunnery. #IronSoldiers

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.
