  • Logistics Modernization Director Remember Roots

    Jul 16, 2009

Primarily we were trying to make the command aware of the change that was coming and how it was going to impact them. It started the framework... I've been working this a long time."

  • 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.

  • 'God Reached Down and Protected Me'

    Jul 9, 2009

    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."

  • Radin presents Silver Star to Iowa family

    Jun 29, 2009

    Maj. Gen. Robert M. Radin, commanding general, U.S. Army Sustainment Command, presents a Silver Star Medal to Harry Rasmusson's family after 65 years. The family accepted the medal at American Legion Post No. 334 in McCallsburg, Iowa, May 25. Rasmusson earned the medal based on his actions as a Soldier with the 90th Infantry Division in World War II. Unfortunately, the paperwork was lost, then presumed destroyed when a large portion of the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis was gutted by fire in 1973. The family approached retired Brig. Gen. J. Daniel McGowan, an Iowa civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army, to see if the paperwork could be reinstated. With assistance from Lt. Col. Brad Dostal, commander of the Minneapolis Recruiting Battalion, the award was eventually approved. Although Harry Rasmusson passed away in July 2008, family members said they were honored to receive the medal as part of the town's Memorial Day celebration.
