DONAHUE, Iowa -- Speaking as a comrade in arms, the command sergeant major of Army Sustainment Command addressed American Legion Post 532 members and auxiliary members at their hall on Sept. 13.

During his presentation, Command Sgt. Maj. Stephen D. Blake highlighted how today's servicemembers are carrying on the mission to preserve our country's freedom.

"You are well known as the 'greatest generation,'" said Blake, "and I can assure you that today's servicemembers are dedicated to defend the freedom that you have won for us in previous wars."

He went on to say, "We must never forget those who willingly gave their lives so that we can live in peace."

Blake's presentation highlighted examples of the current technology used in today's dangerous conflicts as well as examples of the dedicated service provided by uniformed servicemembers, civilians and contractors stationed around the world.

Seeking to foster a culture of engagement, Army Sustainment Command looks for community outreach opportunities, with members participating in some 50 events this year.
