Soldiers Still Missing Sleep, Avoiding Healthy Foods

The 2020 Health of the Force report was released last week. There is a link inside the story to see where Fort Drum stacks up. As always, if you are experiencing issues with sleep, discuss it with your provider. If your sleep issues are behavioral in nature, the Army Wellness Center's Healthy Sleep Habits class may be able to help!

A June report on Army health finds just 37% of soldiers are getting seven or more hours of sleep, 25% of soldiers are using to***co products, and less than half of soldiers are eating enough fruits and vegetables.

Some changes to our class schedule in the month of June. First, most of our classes will be taught at 1030 instead of 1300. Secondly, and the one we are most looking forward to, is that we will be returning to in-person classes on Tuesday, June 8th! Those attending will still need to mask just as you would for any AWC appointment. Also, our classroom is set up to maximize physical distancing protocols, so our class size will be limited to 15 individuals. If you are still in need of a virtual offering, we can still help. Please contact us directly, and we can work with you! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Who are you remembering today?

On this Memorial Day I remember the following Paratroopers, who gave the last full measure of devotion...

SGT Blaine A. Mishak; October 29, 1992
MAJ Edward J. Murphy; April 6, 2005
SSG Damion G. Campbell; August 26, 2005
MAJ Thomas G. Bostick Jr; July 27, 2007
1SG Russell R. Bell; August 2, 2012

...and the countless others who lost their lives in service to our great Nation in combat, peace, and training...

"...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

We honor and remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
