A message to the Army community about civil unrest

Dear Soldiers, Civilians, Family members and Soldiers for Life:

Over the past week, the country has suffered an explosion of frustration over the racial divisions that still plague us as Americans. And because your Army is a reflection of American society, those divisions live in the Army as well. We feel the frustration and anger. We felt it this week while traveling through the nation’s capital with the DC National Guard. We feel it, even though we can never fully understand the frustration and life experiences of people of color, in or out of uniform. But we do understand the importance of taking care of people, and of treating every person with dignity and respect.
Our ability to defend this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic, is founded upon a sacred trust with the American people. Racial division erodes that trust. Though we all aspire to live by the Army values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage, the Army has sometimes fallen short. Because just as we reflect the best of America, we reflect its imperfections as well. We need to work harder to earn the trust of mothers and fathers who hesitate to hand their sons and daughters into our care. How we respond to the anger that has ignited will chart the course of that trust.
Every Soldier and Department of the Army Civilian swears an oath to support and defend the Constitution. That includes the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. We will continue to support and defend those rights, and we will continue to protect Americans, whether from enemies of the United States overseas, from COVID-19 at home, or from violence in our communities that threatens to drown out the voices begging us to listen. To Army leaders of all ranks, listen to your people, but don’t wait for them to come to you. Go to them. Ask the uncomfortable questions. Lead with compassion and humility, and create an environment in which people feel comfortable expressing grievances. Let us be the first to set the example. We are listening. And we will continue to put people first as long as we are leading the Army. Because people are our greatest strength.
God bless all of the people of our United States Army: our Soldiers, Families, Civilians, and Soldier for Life retirees and veterans. And God bless the United States of America.

Spc. Jacob Barajas leads and practices Drill and Ceremony with fellow 300th Sustainment Brigade Soldiers.
As Soldiers master the art of the drill, they begin to work as a team and to develop a sense of pride in themselves and in their unit. In today's Army, the same objectives--teamwork, confidence, pride, alertness, attention to detail, espirit de corps and discipline--are accomplished by drill.

Ground guides are a vehicle operator's "eyes" when maneuvering equipment in areas of limited visibility. Ensuring our soldiers operate vehicles safely is always a top priority. Safety comes in three cans: you can, I can, we can.

The 223d Support Maintenance Company conducted virtual battle assembly this past weekend. They focused on finishing typical mandatory training, PRT, SGLI updates and finished out some government travel card applications.

The only way you pull this off is by giving your first-line leaders the concept and let them execute, said 223d First Sergeant, MSG Alan Schmitz.

77th Sustainment Brigade

77th Sustainment Brigade

On Friday, June 28, 2019 the 77th Sustainment Brigade and the 300th Sustainment Brigade conducted a Brigade motivation run. The run was an unofficial send off for the outgoing 300th Sustainment Brigade and a welcome to the incoming Liberty Warriors. In attendance were the two battalions that will now fall under the 77th Sustainment Brigade. The 129th and 529th Combat Sustainment Support Battalions. While the sun sets for the 300th Sustainment Brigade as they close their mission here at Camp Arifjan, the torch has now been passed to a brigade that is well equipped, well trained and ready to take the torch and continue the mission of Sustaining the Warfighters in support of Operation Spartan Shield.
