    Jul 24, 2009

    When times are good in manufacturing plants, a production-heavy focus may blur the organization's focus on requirements for such things as equipment maintenance.

The Watervliet Arsenal is trying to change that thought process by introducting a new maintenance concept to the workforce.

  • Fun Alternatives Offered at Redstone Summer Camps

    Jul 23, 2009

    Balancing a parent's need to find a safe place for their child during the summer with a kid's desire for fun can be tricky. The Child Youth and School Services summer camp programs have managed to keep everyone happy while school is out. Programs at the Youth Center and School Age Services give parents peace of mind for the weeks between school years. They kicked off the week following the end of the Huntsville city school term and will conclude during the first week of August. They have offered the two age groups different ways to pass the time safely and happily. Kids in elementary school, from kindergarten to fifth-grade, attend the day camps at the new Myra Garriott School Age Services building, which opened in April. Camp goes until 5 p.m. each day. Inside the spacious facility, kids got to choose how they want to spend their summer. "Every three weeks they sign up for a different track," facility director Mary Washington said. "There are eight tracks. They have music, arts and crafts, sports and fitness, reading and language arts, science and nature, technology, hiking and walking, and the techno room has video games."

"My entire family has supported me in my military career," he said. "My wife and I were dating in high school when I joined the Guard in 1985. She was there to put me on the plane to attend basic training and when I returned from my advanced individual training. We married and she's stuck by me the whole time."

"These buildings fundamentally allow us to change the way we do flight testing in the Army," ATTC commander Col. Chris Sullivan said. "The opportunities these buildings represent for ATTC and RTTC, for PEO Aviation and AMRDEC are tremendous. They are already doing testing here today. These buildings will allow testing to accelerate. We couldn't be more excited about the opportunities they represent and we appreciate the partnership with PEO Aviation to build them."

Those laws, including right-of-way and signaling are the same on the installation as they are off. Where the state's Title 32 and Redstone differ lies within Redstone Arsenal Regulation 190-5.

Hadley is a member of UAH's Students Working at the Army in Parallel program which allows students to work in government positions while completing their degrees. While pursing his master's of business administration, he works in foreign military sales at the AMCOM Security Assistance Management Directorate. "At UAH the material they teach isn't out of a textbook. They relate everything to the real world and how things are done in practice," Hadley said. So when he heard about the program, he felt it would be a great opportunity to get a "foot in the door" and to apply more real-life experience to his classes.

  • Army Like Second Family to Female Aviator

    Jul 16, 2009

    Maj. Jennifer Newsome has spent much of her Army career flying Chinook helicopters. But these days her career has taken a turn into acquisition, where she works in the Cargo Helicopter Project Office for the Program Executive Office of Aviation. Since February 2008, she has served as the assistant product manager for the CH-47F Improved Cargo Helicopter, a remanufactured version of the CH-47 Delta cargo helicopter. Although no longer flying full-time, Newsome will always be among the first female helicopter pilots to fly in a war environment during two deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom. With 11 years in the Army, Newsome is continuing to spread her professional wings as she takes on new responsibilities that will impact the Army's aviation fleet for years to come. The bottom line for her, as with many who are in Army leadership positions, is to make a difference for Soldiers and to continue in that mission for several more years. "This is my second family," she said. "That's a feeling. The Army came around at one point when I was a captain asking what they could do to keep us in the Army. I told them 'You can't do anything. It's the troops. It's the war fighters. It's not the incentives. It's not the money for sure. It's the troops as a whole. That's my family.'

  • A Chaplain's Story--From Civil War Battelfields to Tobyhanna

    Jul 9, 2009

    TOBYHANNA ARMY DEPOT, Pa. - I recently read an article printed in 1914 about one of the early Tobyhanna chaplains, Rev. Father Thomas Sherman, son of Gen. William T. Sherman of Civil War fame. The article was very brief, simply stating that the chaplain was leaving for New York City on that day, that he had been the chaplain for the Fourth Regiment of the Missouri National Guard, and a veteran of the Spanish-American War. The article also mentioned that Thomas accompanied his father on his Civil War campaigns. This scanty bit of information piqued my curiosity - I wanted to know more about Rev. Father Thomas Sherman. I was unable to uncover any details of his time at Tobyhanna; however, I did discover some of the details of his life.

    For many people, reaching a mountaintop often brings to mind the beauty of a sunset, the promise of a majestic view and the hope for a better future. But, for Nate Self, a mountaintop symbolizes two starkly different things - the terror of sudden death at the hands of an enemy, and God's promise to be with His followers through the toughest battles. A West Point graduate and a former Army Ranger captain, Self was at the top of Takur Ghar Mountain in Afghanistan in 2002 when enemy fire killed seven of his fellow Soldiers in a battle that is now known as the Rescue on Roberts Ridge. But he left that mountain knowing that God was with him and his men during the heat of battle. "Whenever I see a mountain I am reminded of Bull Hill at West Point and reciting Psalm 121 as we climbed it," he said. "The first verse always stuck with me. Whenever I saw mountains that was God reminding me He was there."
