The 2020 Presidential Election is now three months away. Army personnel, Soldiers and civilian employees alike, swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The Department of Defense has a long-standing policy of encouraging its personnel to carry out the obligations of citizenship, which includes permitting certain political activities, such as registering to vote and voting.

It is critically important that all Army personnel are aware of and understand the permissible and impermissible political activities for Soldiers and civilian employees pursuant to DoD Directive 1344.10 and the Hatch Act (US Code Sections 7321-7326), respectively.

We are deeply saddened by events unfolding in the disappearance of SPC Vanessa Guillen. Vanessa was a valued member of the Army team and nothing like this should ever happen to one of our own. The Army is using every available means to learn the truth. We ask for everyone’s patience in this matter as we continue to work with local Texas and Federal law-enforcement agencies to find the truth and bring justice for Vanessa and her family.

"Effective 1 August 2020, the requirement for officer, warrant officer and enlisted selection boards to include the DA Photo as part of the board file is suspended. Data that identifies a Soldier’s race, ethnicity, and gender on the Officer Record Brief and the Enlisted Record Brief will be redacted as a part of the board file. These changes will help ensure that selection boards are as fair and impartial as possible." - Secretary of the U.S. Army Ryan McCarthy and Chief of Staff, Army, Gen. James McConville.

Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story

As we execute a conditions-based approach to both HPCON changes and the lifting of travel restrictions, we must still ensure the health of the force and guarantee mission assurance. COVID-19 is not eradicated. It still presents risk to our service members, civilian workforce, and their families. Likewise, the many vectors this virus can take to infiltrate our force makes it a continued threat to mission assurance, a zero failure mission.

Sgt. 1st Class Robert Reeves smoked his first cigarette at age six. By his late 30s, the Alabamian was smoking three packs a day and couldn’t walk to his mailbox without getting winded.

Then a recruiter knocked on his door. Fast forward 16 years and Reeves, who turned 54 in May, is now running ultramarathons.

Grey Team

It is with a heavy heart that Grey Team informs you that CSM Patrick Gavin Tadina, the longest continuously serving Ranger in Vietnam and one of the war’s most decorated enlisted soldiers, has died a few days ago in North Carolina. He was 77.

CSM Tadina served in Vietnam with the 173rd AB, LRRP, 74th Infantry Detachment Long Range Patrol, and Company N (Ranger), 75th Infantry. For over 5 years, between 1965 and 1970, he led long-range reconnaissance patrols deep into enemy territory — often dressed in black pajamas and sandals, and carrying an AK-47. His small stature and dark complexion helped him pass for a Viet Cong soldier on patrols in the Central Highlands.

Even though he was a leader, Tadina always took point position in his team. Because of his appearance, he would brazenly walk up to within a few feet of the enemy, open fire, then hastily retreat, leading the surviving enemy pursuers directly into an ambush, previously set up by his team.

A native of Hawaii, Tadina also served in the Dominican Republic, Grenada, and Iraq.

During his 30-year US Army career, Tadina earned two Silver Stars, 10 Bronze Stars — seven with valor — three Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry, four Army Commendation Medals, including two for valor, and three Purple Hearts.

Rest easy CSM, you will not be forgotten.
