The awards directly reflect the outstanding achievements in support of the Soldiers and the Army's transformation efforts.

  • Annual Family Symposium Seeks Delegates

    Oct 16, 2009

    Nicki Swindle is looking for a few good volunteers. And you can be one of those volunteers if you have an association with the military and Redstone Arsenal; the desire to listen, question and follow through with quality of life issues as they are presented; the ability to work in a team to identify, develop and prioritize issues; and, above all, the commitment to making a difference in the lives of servicemembers, retirees, Army civilians and their family members. Oh, and one last requirement - you have to be able to participate in a two-day Team Redstone Army Family Action Plan conference set for Oct. 27-28 at the Officers and Civilians Club. "We need delegate volunteers," said Swindle, the quality of life program manager for Army Community Service. "We already have our facilitators, recorders, transcribers and issue support volunteers. But we need delegates with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. We need delegates that represent active duty, DA civilians, retirees, and active duty, retiree or DA civilian spouses." Thirty volunteer delegates are required by the conference. They are divided among three issue groups - medical/dental; benefits and entitlements, including traffic, transportation, personnel, finance and housing; and consumer services, including Commissary, PX and Family and Morale Welfare and Recreation activities. "The delegates do not have to be experts in these areas. We have subject matter experts that will provide them with the information they need to make decisions," Swindle said. Delegates work in their groups to review issues and brainstorm new issues, ask questions and conduct research involving subject matter experts, choose the group's top three issues, write issue statements and then present them at the end of the conference. "Everybody has a role in this process," Swindle said. "We want the delegates to feel comfortable enough to share their opinions. There are no uniforms, no ranks, no last names. Everyone is equal in this process. This conference gives people a voice, a way to get involved in change. But this isn't about personal agendas. We need delegates who want to see positive change come out of the process."

  • Furry Friend Makes Reading Time Fun

    Oct 16, 2009

    At first glance, Taka is a big dog. The German shepherd stands taller than many young children. But, after meeting him, it doesn't take long for Taka's gentle demeanor, high tolerance level and friendly nature to bring his stature down to a child's level, where he is petted, hugged and kissed, and read to. Read to' Taka is a registered therapy dog and a Reading Education Assistance Dog. He spends the first Saturday morning of each month practicing his listening skills with children who read to him at the Redstone Arsenal Library as part of the Tales with Taka program. At his side is his owner and trainer, Jamie Ward, who spends her working days as the acting chief of the acquisition management division, Lower Tier Project Office. "This is all fun for the children. It gets them comfortable around dogs and encourages them with their reading," Ward said. "It's a way for me to support the troops and their families." On a recent Saturday morning, Taka read books with two members of Taka's Pack Readers -- 9-year-old Sofia Rundini and 7-year-old Isabella Fratangelo. Both picked out books that they knew Taka would like.

  • Retirees Welcomed As Part Of The Arsenal Family

    Oct 16, 2009

    Besides information on health, benefits and local volunteer services, attendees of the two-day Military Retiree Appreciation Day at Redstone Arsenal also received an up-close look at the Arsenal and all it has to offer its Soldiers, civilian work force, retirees and their families. And much of that up-close look was provided by Garrison commander Col. Bob Pastorelli during an Oct. 3 presentation in Bob Jones Auditorium. "You are a part of our family," Pastorelli told the retirees. "This is an important event for us. I've been in the Army for 24 years, and as long as I've been in the service, no one does it better than Redstone Arsenal. "We're here to support you and we're going to do our best each and every time. We never forget about you even when you do retire. Our commitment is to provide you with whatever services we are capable of providing." Pastorelli thanked the event's coordinators - the Retiree Council of Redstone Arsenal - and all the organizations, including the Family and Morale Welfare and Recreation, Officers and Civilians Club, and Fox Army Health Center, that made the event possible. "Nothing gets done unless people lean forward, volunteer and make it so," he said. "(Co-chairmen) Henry Oldham and Doug Patrick and all their volunteers do phenomenal work every time." The colonel reviewed with retirees the size and economic impact of Redstone Arsenal - 38,125 acres; 12 million square feet of building space; $2.7 billion annual economic impact from salaries; 33,000-plus employees on Redstone Arsenal; 78,843 military retirees in the immediate area; 118,265 family members; and 55,303 civilian retirees.

  • I'm Not Stopping Serving No Matter What"

    Oct 16, 2009

    This year's Military Retiree Appreciation Day at Redstone Arsenal was all about life changes -- life changes that make a positive impact, that lead to reassessments and new commitments, that make a difference in the lives of others. Health care exhibitors including Fox Army Health Center, Huntsville Hospital and Crestwood Medical Center provided information about managing health issues, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Volunteer agencies like Still Serving Veterans and Army Community Service offered both services and volunteer opportunities. And program speakers urged attendees to make the most of their retirement years. The two-day event gave retirees a glimpse of the life changes they can make in their own lives and in the lives of others. Leading those life changes was one of the Army's most active military retirees - Jack Tilley, who prefers to be introduced as the former - not the retired - 12th sergeant major of the Army. Tilley brought his message of life changes to the second day of the annual Military Retiree Appreciation Day event, held Oct. 2 at the Officers and Civilians Club and Oct. 3 at the Sparkman Center's Bob Jones Auditorium and cafeteria. His message - interspersed with personal antidotes - told of his deep faith in God, his belief that the U.S. still stands for hope, peace and equality throughout the world, and his willingness to continue in his service to the nation despite carrying the label "retired." "My name is Jack Tilley. I'm a retiree. I'm a Soldier. And I will never stop serving," he told retirees in closing his presentation on Oct. 3. But before the closing came so much more.

  • NCO Academy Aces Organizational Day

    Oct 16, 2009

    It all came down to this last test of strength and will. Two Soldiers, a male and female, from Headquarters & Headquarters Company and the NCO Academy squared off to determine who would walk away with the 59th Ordnance Brigade Organizational Day 2009 trophy. When the dust cleared from the rapid succession of pushups, the Academy stood alone. Oct. 2 had provided individual and team heroics as Bravo, Charlie, Headquarters & Alpha, the Marines, HHC 59th and NCO Academy gathered for a fun-filled day of activities to build morale within the companies. HHC 59th and the Academy ended the final event of the day, the tug-o-war, tied for first place and then squared off in the tiebreaking event, the pushup. But the true feat was two companies with the oldest Soldiers in the unit beat out more than 400 privates, with the average age of 20. HHC 59th and the Academy both proved age doesn't matter. "You know, it's kind of hard for the NCOA to compete because we have older Soldiers," 1st Sgt. John Butler, senior leaders course branch chief, said. "Some have injuries, some don't run like they used too. But we came out and competed really well against companies like Bravo and Charlie, who have fresh, young Soldiers. For us to come out on top, this was great. It says a lot for our Soldiers in the NCOA." And this victory for the Academy was indeed important. Though the Academy has dominated when it comes to static display contests, they are not known for their athletic achievements. "This victory is special to us," Butler said. "For the last few years, the NCOA was getting beat pretty bad in these (competitions). It's nice to come out on top."

  • Readiness Group Reaches Out To Team Redstone

    Oct 16, 2009

    Unlike predominately-military installations, Redstone deploys both Soldiers and civilians. It's looking to support them through a non-traditional readiness group. "The concept is new in that our demographic is unique here," said Kathleen Riester, Army Community Service program manager and FRG representative. At other installations, troops deploy as a unit. A traditional family readiness group is in place at their post to meet the needs and answer the questions of their families for the duration of their deployment. At Redstone, however, civilians and Soldiers deploy throughout the year - sometimes individually or in small groups for varying time periods. A traditional readiness group just wouldn't work for them. "That's why our name is the 'Community Family Readiness Group,'" Riester said. "Because we're trying to cover all of our people under this one umbrella. Even if you're an office of only five and you have no one deployed right now, you may have someone deployed in the future. You're welcome to the table." Last year the Community FRG formed to try and meet the needs of Team Redstone, both Soldier and civilian, as they deploy. Along the way, they have identified issues unique to civilian deployments.

  • Milestone Run At Army Ten-Miler

    Oct 16, 2009

    WASHINGTON - After all the congratulations for finishing first for the third straight year, the news got even better for members of Redstone's Army Ten-Miler team. The runners learned they had won two first-place awards for the first time in Redstone Arsenal's history of competing in the 25th annual event. Redstone finished first in the government agency division for the third year in a row at the 10-mile race held Oct. 4 near the Pentagon. Redstone also had an entry in the all-comers division. Preliminary results announced at the awards ceremony had Redstone Two finishing second among the all-comers. However, the official results on the Army Ten-Miler website subsequently had Redstone Two finishing first in that division as well. So, Redstone Arsenal swept both the government agency and all-comers divisions for the first time. The Army Ten-Miler office was notified of its earlier discrepancy and promised to settle the matter by Oct. 15.
