Soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division (LI) Sustainment Brigade showed their support for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month by running a “Pink Out” 5k race hosted by the Fort Drum FMWR on Oct. 9, 2020.

Spc. Jovane Parkes, a Unit Supply Specialist (92Y) for the 10th MDSB Property Book Office shared a significant experience that inspired him to run.

“I lost my cousin two years ago to breast cancer,” said Spc. Jovane Parkes, a Unit Supply Specialist (92Y) for the 10th Mountain Division (LI) Sustainment Brigade Property Book Office. “I remembered the pain my family was going through back then and felt like I needed to run it to help support others through their pain and suffering.”

Spc. Parkes finished the race in 2nd place with a time of 22 minutes flat.

Each year in the United States, more than 250,000 women get breast cancer and 42,000 women die from the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Early screening is important in breast cancer detection. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms.

You can find out more about the risks, signs, and symptoms of breast cancer here: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/dcpc/resources/features/breastcancerawareness/index.htm

General information

The 548th CSSB served first during WW II in Europe as an S&S Battalion from September 1944 to June 1945 in France, Holland and Germany. During this campaign, the Battalion earned its first three streamers, for Service in Northern France, Rhineland, and Central Europe. The Battalion was ordered to the Pacific but with the Japanese surrender on 14 August, the orders were canceled and the Battalion was deactivated on 29 September 1945. The 548th was reactivated on 10 January 1967 at Fort McClellan Alabama. It consisted of an HHC with a bakery, a Decon Platoon, 61st CM, 112th CM, and 622nd TC. Later the Battalion was assigned the 365th TC, the 613th QM (FS), and the 4th Surgical Hospital. When the unit relocated to FT Drum, it was designated as a CSB (Corps Support Battalion). During Operation Desert Shield / Storm, the Battalion served over 200 days and had gone further into Iraq than any other CSB. In September 1990, the 548th was the first Battalion in the 1st COSCOM to deploy to Saudi Arabia. On 2 February 1991, the Battalion moved into attack position near the City of Ash Shu’bah and established an operating base where they began Task Force “SWORD” providing fuel, ammo, and maintenance support to 24 ID. On 24 February the Ground War started. The Battalion moved into Iraq two days later to occupy an area near Al Zuba Air Field, between Al Nasiriyah and Basrah. The war ended soon after and the Battalion returned to FT Drum on 15 April 1991. The Battalion earned three more Campaign Streamers during its deployment: Defense of Saudi Arabia, Liberation and Defense of Kuwait, and Cease Fire. The 548th CSB was also awarded a Meritorious Unit Commendation for its service. In September 1992, various elements from the 548th CSB deployed to Florida in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. The Battalion supported Task Forces “All-American” and “Mountain” with services ranging from setting up shower facilities, hauling tons of supplies, and maintenance. Soldiers serving with the Battalion in Florida earned the Humanitarian Service Medal. From 18 December to 10 May 1993, the Battalion deployed to Somalia in support of over 26,000 U.S. Forces. The 548th was the first CSS unit in Mogadishu to move outside the Embassy, Port or Air Field where the Battalion provided maintenance support to units arriving at the air and seaports and distributed material and transported passengers over distances totaling 200,000 miles. For its service in Somalia, the Battalion received the Joint Meritorious Unit Award. From 12 September 1994 to 15 January 1995, the 548th was called on to support Operation Uphold Democracy. The Battalion deployed to Haiti and established Sword Base to provide Supply and Services, Transportation, and Maintenance to the 10th Mountain Division as well as units in XVIII Airborne Corps. Each company played a key role while supporting JTF-190: 57th TC moved material and passengers over 47,000 miles; 514th Maintenance Co conducted direct support maintenance jobs and provided vehicle recovery for all of JTF-190; and the 590th QM (FS) provided shower, laundry, and uniform repair support. Since the attacks on 11 September 2001, the Army has called on all of the units within the 548th CSSB. All companies have deployed around the globe in support of the Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom in Iraq, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Kuwait.
