A message from the 32d AAMDC Commanding General, Brig. Gen. David F. Stewart and Command Sergeant Maj. CSM Jerry Jacobitz.

Teammates,
Please join CSM Jacobitz and me in recognizing June 19, 1865, the last day that slavery was outlawed in the United States. This past Thursday, the President signed the federal holiday into law. Then on Saturday we celebrated Juneteenth National Independence Day which commemorates the announcement of General Order No. 3 by the Union Army fully enforcing the Emancipation Proclamation.

While this federal recognition is new, many families, communities, and states have celebrated Juneteenth since its inception over a century and a half ago. As I’ve engaged our team and others across the DoD, I’ve sensed excitement. Everyone seems to celebrate a little differently. Whether grilling pool-side, playing games, or attending community events, this commemoration is a time for reflection on racial injustice and inequality in our society and our Army. We must keep the dialogue active, sustain progress, and improve shortcomings. Thank you all for your continued service and dedication to each other and our Army!

The realignment of forces comes as the U.S. continues to wind down its two-decade war in Afghanistan and seeks to shift its military focus from counterinsurgency to competing powerful rivals

The U.S. is cutting air defense systems and force levels in the Middle East as the Biden administration realigns its military posture to focus on countering China and Russia.

Statement by Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III on Juneteenth:

The men and women of the Department of Defense are honored to participate in the first commemoration of Juneteenth as a federal holiday. Juneteenth holds particular significance for the United States military since it marks the date in 1865—more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation—on which Union soldiers, led by Army Major General Gordon Granger, issued the famous General Order No. 3, informing the people of Texas that "all slaves are free." We are proud to build upon that legacy of emancipation as we work to defend our freedoms and to make real the full promise of American democracy for all our citizens, on June 19 and every day. I wish our outstanding men and women in uniform and our dedicated civilian workforce a meaningful Juneteenth.

National Flag Day

The first celebration of the U.S. Flag's birthday was held in 1877 on the 100th anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. However, it is believed that the first annual recognition of the flag's birthday dates back to 1885 when school teacher, BJ Cigrand, first organized a group of Wisconsin school children to observe June 14 - the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as the Flag's Birthday. Cigrand, now known as the 'Father of Flag Day,' continued to publically advocate the observance of June 14 as the flag's 'birthday', or 'Flag Day' for years.

"When that left foot hits the ground, all I want to hear is that HOOAH sound! " Since the inception of the first required Army-wide physical training program in 1906, running has been a pivotal part of the Army's legacy. You may not be the fastest runner, but it's one activity that we can all relate to. Do you prefer running in a group or individually?
