IMCOM CG Sends – Columbus Day Safety Message 2015

The landing of Columbus in the New World is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as Discovery Day in the Bahamas, and as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Belize and Uruguay. In 1792, New York City and other U.S. cities celebrated the 300th anniversary of his landing in the New World, and President Benjamin Harrison called upon the people of the United States to celebrate Columbus Day on the 400th anniversary of the event, as well. Though people have celebrated Columbus' voyage since the colonial period, Columbus Day first became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and didn’t became a federal holiday in the United States until 1937.

Since Columbus Day is a federal holiday and three-day weekend, many of our Soldiers, Army Civilians, and their Families will take advantage of one of the last opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors before winter sets in. This increases the risk of accidents, and we all need to do our part to keep our Army Family strong and safe.

Many of you have teen aged drivers, and special precautions are warranted. Even though obtaining a driver license is a much more in-depth process than it used to be, state laws may not be enough to fully protect new teen drivers. Household rules about passengers, nighttime driving, and cell phone use can fill gaps in state laws. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration developed a model of what is known as graduated driver licensing, and additional resources can be found here: http://www.nhtsa.gov/Driving+Safety

Shorter days and cooler evenings mean fall is here – and this is often the time that we start seeing people sick with flu. By getting a flu vaccine for yourself and your entire family every season, you can help prevent flu-related illness, missed school, and missed work. Also, keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to keep from getting sick and avoid spreading germs to others.

Finally, fall marks the start of football season, and many of you have loved ones participating. To help ensure the health and safety of our young athletes, CDC developed the “Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports” initiative to offer information about concussions - a type of traumatic brain injury - to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The "Heads Up" initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.

Safety never takes time off, so we all need to work together to remain vigilant to prevent on- and off-duty accidents this Columbus Day weekend. CSM Hartless and I cannot express how proud we are of your efforts to truly make IMCOM the Army’s Home... let’s make it a safe home, as well.

Support and Defend!
Army Strong!

A Facebook 'Dislike Button' Scam has been identified. After a 15 September 2015 announcement by Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg that Facebook is working on a ‘dislike button’ akin to their ‘like button’, there has been a resurgence in Facebook scams with ‘dislike button’ themes. In these scams, victims are convinced that ‘sharing’ the ‘dislike button’ article will grant them access to a ‘dislike button’. Instead, the scam further entices the user into installing software or completing surveys that provide the attacker with valuable information.

"While most Americans may never fully comprehend the price paid by those who gave their last full measure of devotion, families of the fallen know it intimately and without end. Their sleepless nights allow for our peaceful rest, and the folded flags they hold dear are what enable ours to wave. The depth of their sorrow is immeasurable, and we are forever indebted to them for all they have given for us."-Presidential Proclamation-Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day, 2015.

PATRIOT DAY AND NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE AND REMEMBRANCE, 2015

- - - - - - -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

On September 11, 2001, America experienced the worst terrorist attack in her history when nearly 3,000 men, women, and children were taken from us, leaving their families and our Nation with a void that can never be filled. But those who brought hate to our shores and smoke to our skies did not expect our country to emerge stronger, and our beacons of hope and freedom to shine brighter as a result. In the years since, we have stood strong as one people ‑‑ determined to further embolden our country's character with acts of endurance and strength; rebuilding and resilience; renewal and progress. In remembrance of the innocent victims who lost their lives and in honor of the families they left behind, let us continue to answer these heinous acts by serving our communities, lifting the lives of our fellow citizens, and spreading the hope that others tried to dim that day.

The compassion that rose in the hearts and minds of the American people on September 11 still serves as the ultimate rebuke to the evil of those who attacked us. First responders who risked and gave their lives to rescue others demonstrated the unwavering heroism that defines our great Nation. Volunteers donated time, money, and blood to ensure wounds gave way to healing and recovery. Young people, raised until then in a time of peace, stepped forward to serve and defend us, and meet the threats of our time. And people from across our country and the world joined together in the days that followed to stand up and turn toward one another with open arms, making of a tragedy something the terrorists could never abide ‑‑ a tribute of hope over fear, and love over hate.

As we reflect on the lives we lost and pay tribute to the families who still live with extraordinary pain, let us resolve to continue embodying the American spirit that no act of terror can ever extinguish. I call on all Americans to observe this National Day of Service and Remembrance with acts of selflessness and charity. In doing so, we prove once again that the power of those who seek to harm and to destroy is never greater than our power to persevere and to build. I encourage everyone to visit www.Serve.gov to learn of the many opportunities available to give back to others and to reaffirm the fundamental truth that we are our brothers' and our sisters' keepers, and that we can forge a brighter future together.

Today, we continue our unfaltering march forward, enduring in the perennial optimism that drives us and brightening the light that the darkness of evil can never overcome. We remember and yearn for the presence of the beautiful lives lost, and we recommit to honoring their memories by shaping the days to come ‑‑ in as stark a contrast as possible to those who took them from us ‑‑ with courage, liberty, and love.

By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day," and by Public Law 111-13, approved April 21, 2009, the Congress has requested the observance of September 11 as an annually recognized "National Day of Service and Remembrance."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 11, 2015, as Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. I call upon all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States to display the flag of the United States at half-staff on Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. I invite the Governors of the United States and its Territories and interested organizations and individuals to join in this observance. I call upon the people of the United States to participate in community service in honor of those our Nation lost, to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities, including remembrance services, and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time to honor the innocent victims who perished as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

tenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
