To the Soldiers, Families, and Community of III Corps and Fort Hood,

Today the Fort Hood Independent Review Committee released their report following an assessment of the command climate and culture on Fort Hood and within the surrounding community. This historic and unprecedented review has revealed genuine issues that will require the collective efforts of Fort Hood and our local community partners to effectively address.

Feedback from our own Soldiers, Family Members, and external reviews indicate that two decades of sustained combat operations and rotational requirements have created an imbalance between mission and people. As such, we lost focus in taking care of our most valuable resource - our Soldiers - resulting in a growing trust deficit between Leader and Led.

We are committed to implementing the review committees' recommendations and incorporating them into Operation PEOPLE FIRST. Once fully implemented, PEOPLE FIRST will make Fort Hood a safer place. We expect Leaders to know their Soldiers and Families and to take action to ensure their health and welfare are provided for. Leaders who fail to act, or who fail to treat others with dignity and respect, will be held accountable. We will not tolerate discrimination or harassment within our force.

America trusts us with their sons and daughters. As such, every Soldier deserves great Leaders - Leaders who inspire Soldiers to be the best they can be and, more importantly, Leaders who earn their trust.

America's Hammer remains the most capable fighting force in the world. We will work together to certify Leaders of character, hold accountable those that break the sacred trust between Leader and Led, and ensure that all are treated with dignity and respect.

I recommend that every NCO seek out some type credible tangible in person mentorship from someone who is not going to just tell you what to hear but what you need to hear.

There are Senior NCOs that are willing and able to steer you in the right direction if you are willing to be TEACHABLE.

No one is beyond correction. If you are in a situation that seems unfavorable and no one is telling you how you could have handled that situation better and they are hyping you up, that’s the worst advice you can get.

Get a mentor ASAP!

COVID-19 hasn’t gone anywhere. Cases are rising rapidly in many parts of the U.S. This pandemic is not over. But, if we all work together and do our part, it can be. Here’s what you can do to help protect yourself and others:
• Wear a mask over your mouth AND nose when in public.
• Stay home when you can.
• Stay at least 6 feet apart from others and avoid crowds.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

The ASK-EM 21-01 Market will open Veterans' Day (Wednesday, 11 NOV 20) at 0700 for over 9000 NCOs across most enlisted MOSs.

Most eligible NCOs with a YMAV (Year/Month Available to move) between 2107 and 2110 will be included in the 21-01 market. The report dates for 21-01 are between July-October 2021. NCOs identified to move will receive an automated email at 0700 on 11 NOV 20 that will grant them access to the ASK-EM web-based market interface. Access will remain open for four weeks until 08 DEC 20 at midnight for NCOs to submit their preferences.

NCOs who are NOT identified to move in 21-01 will NOT have access to the ASK-EM tab within ASK.

Example of the ASK-EM Market can be downloaded using the below link.

Contact your branch at if you have any questions about the ASK-EM market or your YMAV.

Note: ASK-EM is a CAC enabled interface that performs optimally on computers using an Internet Explorer web browser with JavaScript enabled. However, if an NCO does not have access to the ASK-EM tab within ASK, this does not mean there is a JavaScript issue, it likely means the NCO is not in an open market at the time.




From Army G-1 Uniform Policy: U.S. Army's OCP ACU rank insignia, badges, name, and service tapes will now feature a lighter pattern to increase readability and make it easier to recognize a Soldier's rank. The Army and Air Force Exchange Service has already begun to transition inventories to the new three-color pattern name and service tapes. The three-color insignia name tags should be in the inventory and available to Soldiers by Nov 2020. The current seven-color background rank insignia, badges, name, and service tapes are and will remain, authorized for wear.
