Some exciting news this week: the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) selected Fort Drum as one of five recipients of the 2020 Commander in Chief’s Annual Award for Installation Excellence!

“When we receive an honor such as this, it is a reflection of our entire installation and the community as a whole,” said Col. Jeffery Lucas, Fort Drum garrison commander. “Everyone contributes – our civilian workforce, leaders, Soldiers, family members, and volunteers. It is a collective effort, and I couldn’t be prouder of everyone who lives and works at Fort Drum.”
The Commander in Chief’s Annual Award for Installation Excellence recognizes the outstanding and innovative performances of the people who operate and maintain U.S. military installations. A recognition earned by our entire community!

U.S. Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command

It is not uncommon to hear Army Leaders use the slogan “People First, Mission Always.” This is because all good leaders know that you cannot achieve your mission without every person in your organization accomplishing his or her tasks. Leaders have to devote time to taking care of people or the mission ultimately fails.

Anthony Sligar, the director of contracting for 925th CBN and MICC - Fort Drum, said COVID-19 has moved the majority of his office operations to telework and has forced management to adapt a new style of leadership. The one thing that is particularly difficult to do over video teleconferencing is team building activities. However, he considers team building a critical aspect of putting people first and a contributing factor to mission success.

Lindsay McLaughlin of MICC-Fort Drum took on the challenge and planned a virtual organization day that was as a huge success. The theme of the day was “Let’s Make an Org Day” and all MICC-Fort Drum employees participated from their homes over a group video conference. The event was spin off of the popular TV Game show “Let’s Make a Deal.” In “Let’s Make a Deal,” host Wayne Brady will poll the audience to provide him with an odd item in a scavenger hunt fashion. The first person to provide the host with that item wins a prize. Sligar served as the game show host and throughout the day polled the office staff to show an item on their camera. The first was a frozen pizza, the first person to run and get a frozen pizza and show it in their camera won.

McLaughlin laughed every time Sligar polled the team for an item as co-workers were seen running away from the camera looking for the item. Other items were a takeout menu, Mickey Mouse stuffed animal, coffee mug with a slogan, pet, and a Hawaiian shirt. The day’s event also included a game of “Name that Tune” and a couple rounds of Bingo. Just like in “Let’s Make a Deal” the winners of these games got to choose a mystery prize from boxes numbered one through four. Two of the boxes included real prizes but the remaining two included “Zonks.” Laura Wallace whom put together the “Name that Tune” game got the first Zonk, a roll of toilet paper. Wallace added as a good sport “the prize was supposed to be a ‘zonk’ but during COVID, toilet paper is like currency.”

An office favorite during “Name that Tune” was when the contestant that got the correct answer was offered an extra point for also singing a portion of the song. McLaughlin noted her favorite part of the day was hearing some of the division chiefs sing the 80’s greatest hits. The day also included award ceremonies with Kristen Church Mulvaney, Linda Picard, Barbara Glen and Ramona Lacey-Gonzalez receiving length-of-service awards. The office also included a hail of newcomer Tasha Driscoll who started during COVID and birthday recognition. The people portion of the day was great. Even though it was held through a video conference, the Org Day was fun, interactive and promoted camaraderie. The mission always portion of the day included office-wide training on the new clause and provisions required to be included in every contract as a result of the Federal Acquisition Regulation rule implementing Section 889(a)(1)(B), which prohibits contracting with an entity that uses any equipment, system or service that uses covered telecommunications equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.

As MICC-Fort Drum members all adjust to the new normal and continue to utilize telework for the health and safety of its office, they found it great to come together as an organization and have some fun!

Emergency Communication Services

Dear 925th & MICC Ft Drum Families,

If your Family has an emergency at home and you must contact your Soldier, be sure to contact the Red Cross. If the emergency requires that your Soldier come home, Red Cross-verified information helps commanding officers make decisions about emergency leave and it is up to the military whether the service member returns home.

The Red Cross emergency communication services keep military service members in touch with their families following the death or serious illness of an immediate family member, birth of a service member’s child or grandchild, or when a family has other emergencies.

Red Cross can help twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. They will relay urgent messages and verified descriptions of the emergency to service members stationed anywhere in the world including ships at sea and remote locations.

The American Red Cross relays urgent messages for military families containing accurate, factual, complete and verified descriptions of the emergency.
