REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- As summer draws to a close the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command bids farewell to four Summer Hires.

Mia Morales, Darius Small, Demarko Small and Jerrid Spinks are local high school graduates who worked at USASAC over the summer break before beginning college. Each was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for their service.

Morales worked in the EUCOM/AFRICOM directorate; Spinks and Darius Small worked in the PACOM/SOUTHCOM directorate; and Demarko Small worked in the G-1/G-8 office.

The annual USASAC Summer Hire Program utilizes recent high school graduates with an interest in working for the federal government in the future. Based on the availability of funds and the needs of the command, Summer Hires are utilized from July - Aug. each year.

USASAC implements approved U.S. Army security assistance programs, including Foreign Military Sales of defense articles and services to eligible foreign governments. The command manages approximately 4,000 FMS cases valued at more than $60 billion. USASAC also manages the Army's co-production program. Visit USASAC online at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.
