PHONE SCAM ALERT NOTICE: There has been a recent surge locally in phone scams. A caller, blocking their telephone number from caller ID, introduces themselves as an attorney representing some firm to which the recipient is alleged to owe a debt. The caller then tells the recipient that they have until noon or close of business of the date of the call to send them the amount owed or they will issue a warrant for their arrest in the very near future.

If you receive a call of this nature, DO NOT confirm any personally identifiable information, to include social security numbers or financial information.

Do try to get information about the caller: name, phone number, physical address, who they work for. This information should be used in order to file a local police report in the jurisdiction where you live, i.e. MPs if on post, Hinesville Police Department if residing in incorporated Hinesville, Liberty County Sheriff's Office if outside incorporated Liberty County.

Attention all PRT Spouses...There are still slots available for the Spouses of Deployed Soldiers Retreat this weekend. If you are interested in attending please contact Suzanne Hertel at [email protected] as soon as possible to reserve your slot.

Friends,

Care Teams are VITAL. Please thoughtfully consider being a part of this.... Care Team members respond to a family when a Soldier is wounded or killed. They help with things like walking the dog, feeding the baby, folding laundry, making meals or simply BEING THERE until extended family arrive to help.

Care Team training will be held for 1-9 FA on Wednesday, 19 September 2012 from 0930-1130 at ACS building 87. (Close to the PX) If you are interested in taking the training, please RSVP to Michelle Glenn or 1LT Spence as soon as possible.

FREE hourly childcare is available for the training. To use the childcare your children must be registered with CYS prior to the date that care is needed. Those that would like to use it need to call the CDC and make hourly childcare reservations for their children. The day of the training you will drop off your child and then come to ACS for the training. Once the training is complete ACS will give you a voucher to take back to the CDC. The CDC will use that voucher to receive payment from ACS.
