SUN SETS ON ANOTHER DAY OF BARRACKS CONSTRUCTION: An area of the 1600 block of the cantonment area of the installation is shown Nov. 5, 2020, at sunset where a new multi-million dollar barracks is being built at Fort McCoy, Wis. Contractor L.S. Black Constructors was awarded a $20.6 million contract to build the barracks in September 2019. The planned completion date is currently August 2021. The planned barracks will be different than the traditional barracks that are located throughout the installation. This new building will be four stories and be able to house 400 people in approximately 60,000 square feet. The project also is the first of eight new buildings planned for the entire 1600 block. The plan is to build three more barracks with the same specifications, three 20,000-square-foot brigade headquarters buildings, and one 160-room officer quarters. This is an Army Corps of Engineers-managed project. (U.S. Army Photo by Scott T. Sturkol, Public Affairs Office, Fort McCoy, Wis.)

USAR still training, no matter what the conditions!

"Virtual training is especially valuable to cyber soldiers because we're expected to operate within virtual environments."

#COVID19 has transformed how units train throughout the country.

For the U.S. Army Reserve Cyber Protection Team 185 "Cyber Knights," the pandemic has allowed them to employ their civilian experience to enhance their training during virtual battle assemblies.

Chief of Army Reserve

I've asked the Deputy Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Roper, to give us his perspective.

As many of you know, he is an extraordinarily distinguished leader and in the law enforcement community in America, led one of the largest police departments in the United States, and knows the business, of how we continue to balance the rights of the one with the rights of the many.

Pay very close attention to his thoughts.

Just Who is Watching Your Video-Conference Calls

During the COVID-19 pandemic, more people have turned to video-teleconferencing to stay in touch with loved ones, collaborate with coworkers, and even attend medical appointments. The increase in video-conferencing browsing trends has garnered the attention of hackers who are looking for innovative ways to infiltrate computer software systems.

"Cybercriminals are conducting sophisticated phishing campaigns and exploiting vulnerabilities within various Video-Teleconferencing platforms to steal sensitive data," said Edward Labarge, director, Major Cybercrime Unit (MCU). "A lot of this stolen data is already being sold on the darkweb."

CID officials also stated some VTC software companies may not have the user's best interest in mind. One well-known VTC company is currently being sued for allegedly selling user data to third parties, including a popular social media company.

https://www.abajournal.com/news/article/another-lawsuit-is-filed-against-zoom-over-alleged-privacy-problems

According to the lawsuit, the company has provided the third-party with customer information, including details of the device used.

"Official Army business should only be done on Government Furnished Equipment," said Labarge. "Even though many of us are working from home, that doesn't mean our duties to protect Army information stops. Emails containing sensitive data must be encrypted and we should never use personal email for official business."

Labarge explained, cybercriminals are able to exploit VTC software-whether it's a paid service or free-to obtain sensitive information or even eavesdrop on conference calls and virtual meetings. To gain access, cybercriminals may employ phishing, spoofed links or mobile applications that appear to come from legitimate VTC vendors.

"Like all online accounts, it's important to use complex passwords coupled with two-factor authentication," said Labarge. "Additionally, it's important to never use the same password for all your accounts."

As always, you should apply cyber best practices and weigh associated risks to ensure privacy and protect critical information. Consider the following steps:

* Verify the link to the meeting you attend is legitimate.
* Make sure to download the VTC software from the correct website.
* Verify the meeting ID and dial-in information is legitimate.
* Do not make meetings public.
* Do not share a link to a teleconference in an unrestricted, publicly available social media post. Provide the link directly to specific people.
* Avoid remote desktop sharing.

Below is a list of approved collaboration software for Army personnel to use for official telework purposes.
* DISA Global Video Service (GVS)
* Defense Collaboration Services (DCS)
* Skype for Business
* Intelink
* milSuite
* DoD Commercial Virtual Remote (CVR) Environment
* Zoom for Government, available for DOD use with prior approval

**NOTE** This is the second time we published this post. The first post was deleted to protect personal contact information and not to delete original comments.

From the Commanding General of XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg:

To the Fort Bragg Community -

There are over 140,000 personnel that live or come to work on Fort Bragg everyday. On a typical work day, we are the 6th largest city in North Carolina and every decision we make has significant second and third order effects. We have National Special Operations and Conventional Immediate Response forces that are strategic assets to the Nation. We can’t just close the post. Teleworking can’t load a plane or train, it can’t fix a critical piece of equipment, it can’t feed a Soldier, and it can’t treat a patient at a medical facility.

When we go to Minimum Mission Essential manning, it reduces the number of personnel working on Fort Bragg by 90%-95%. We decided to go to Minimum Mission Essential manning to give us two days to make the most informed decisions on the best way forward. That being said, you can only have Minimum Mission Essential manning for so long before it starts to degrade readiness. We will inform you of the decision for impacts on 25 March and beyond shortly.

My top priority is to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will not be able to completely stop the spread but slowing the spread will ”flatten the curve” and limit the impact to our medical capabilities when we need it most in the future. We will slow the spread by enforcing social distancing and increasing our local screening and testing capability so we can isolate those that are positive. The most important action every individual can do right now is stay home if you are sick.

A heartfelt “Thank You” to our incredible medical professionals that are on the front line of this fight. They are in the close flight with this enemy every day. If you have the opportunity please thank them every chance you get.

My promise to you all is that I will always pass you the facts that we have at the time - no one is withholding additional information but I ask that you don’t contribute to the rumors. Things will continue to change in this very dynamic environment, and we will continue to make decisions based on facts and analysis in close consultation with our medical experts.

While many unknowns are facing us in the days ahead, of this I am certain: We will lead through this. It will take all of our efforts to defeat this virus.

I am proud to serve with you all.

Fort Bragg Leaders & Families,

As we stated yesterday, we have seen a tremendous number of changes and decisions being made that impacted our Fort Bragg community as a whole.

First, I want to thank you for your patience as we work to respond to this ever-changing situation. We know many of you are very concerned on how COVID-19 affects you, your family and way of life. We share those concerns because this virus has no borders, it can infect all of us regardless of our race, religion, gender, position or rank.

Understandably, many of you have a lot of questions. I've just sent the following message to leadership across Fort Bragg. It is intended to answer many of the questions we have received. It won't answer all of them, but the answers are all based on facts that we have now. This information will change over time. We will continue to respond to your questions and post regular updates with the latest accurate and timely information.

We ask that you please do your part by sharing these updates and updates from the CDC but don't share gossip and rumors. Going forward, we will focus on what we CAN do. The Soldiers, Civilians, and Families of Fort Bragg have grit and resilience beyond measure, and I am confident that we will find ways to thrive in adversity as we stand ready to answer the Nation's call. CSM Albertson and I are honored to be on your team and together we will lead through this.

Winning Matters!

There are many complaints against Bangladesh Army. Since killing 4 citizens beating by bamboo sticks and boat paddles for the caretaker government system they have been acting as pet dogs of the killer syndicate helping them to steal vote to gain more than 2/3 Seats in the Parliament of the People's Republic of Bangladesh. For the Cancellation of the Caretaker government system each members of the Parliament who have signed the bill must have to be hanged as soon as possible, otherwise High Court & Supreme Court as well as The Constitution of Bangladesh are almost illegal for being influenced by the Killer Syndicate. By Court Marshal a legal action must have to be taken against Bangladesh Army first as they have been violating their job and responsibilities being servant of the criminal leader who ordered to gather with bamboo sticks and boat paddles to kill people for the caretaker government system. For the cancellation of the Caretaker government system there is no scope to avoid hanging. All legal forces of Bangladesh have been bought by a criminal woman who has been using blood of their family as capital to hold the state power by any means. International combined armed forces are required emergency to Bangladesh to establish law and justice in Bangladesh @emergency!
