  • Garrison Steps Up To Support Arsenal Community

    Sep 11, 2009

    The Garrison Town Hall on Sept. 3 at Heiser Hall started and ended right where it should - with its mission and programs. Garrison commander Col. Bob Pastorelli reviewed with employees the Garrison slogan -- "Support First ... People Always!" -- in his opening comments about the Garrison's impact at Redstone Arsenal. That slogan reflects the Garrison's mission to provide high quality, effective and efficient installation operations support and quality of life programs for Team Redstone. "Our mission and vision ('Be what right looks like for a U.S. Army Garrison') talks to you as an organization, as to who you are," he said. "A lot of key things that go on around the Arsenal are because of the Garrison." The Garrison consists of 600 civilian and more than 1,500 contractor employees who work every day to ensure installation operational readiness, provide high-quality safety, security and quality of life services, and plan for and implement long-term growth and stability strategies. "Everybody does a great job every day," Pastorelli said of his Garrison work force.

  • 'I Am Here To Protect, Serve And Support'

    Sep 11, 2009

    Joe DiNoto is committed to working at the tip of the spear. This former third-generation New York City cop has lived through the destruction of Sept. 11, 2001, worked undercover to break up a trans-national group involved in providing material support to a terrorist organization and, most recently, served as the sole designated disclosure authority for classified information released to foreign forces through the Army's Special Operations Command's Security Operations Division. Six months ago, he brought his expertise as a command foreign disclosure officer to the Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, where he works as a subject matter expert in the area of international security, export control and international technology transfer. "I like the leadership here. I like the mission. We're the Army's strategic command," DiNoto said. "USASMDC/ARSTRAT is at the tip of the spear in the nation's strategic mission. Being a part of this organization is humbling for me."

  • Remember: Three who were there share their 9-11 experiences, memories

    Sep 11, 2009

    Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee" -- John Donne, English poet, 1572-1631 And so on Sept. 11, at 9:03 a.m., the Main Post Chapel bells will toll; their haunting reverberations echoing throughout Fort Polk. The bells toll for the 2,974 people who died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. They toll for the diminishment of the nation -- the world -- in the face of such tragedy. They toll for the loss of innocence, the naive belief that the nation was invulnerable to attack. They toll for every American: The bells "toll for thee."

  • Impact Aid Forms Should Go Back To School Quickly

    Sep 11, 2009

    Working on Redstone Arsenal can mean more money for your child's school. That is, if you take the five minutes or so to fill out the Federal Impact Aid form going home with school children today. "It is so important for parents to fill out this form," said Barbara Williams, the Garrison's Youth Education Support Service director and school liaison officer. "In years past, we've always needed the additional funding for local schools that comes from Impact Aid. But, this year, with budgets being cut by proration, this additional funding for school districts is even more important. Schools can use these funds for things like supplies, textbooks and existing programs." Federal Impact Aid is an annual program that disperses federal grant money to local school districts that are financially burdened or impacted by federal populations. These federal populations must live or work on federal property, which in this area includes Redstone Arsenal, TVA property including the Guntersville Dam, Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant and its substations, and the Air Traffic Control Tower at the Huntsville International Airport. "This program is not limited to children of military personnel," Bob Lott of Garrison's BRAC Support Team said.

"Now, you are 35 miles outside Bagram, Afghanistan," he said. "In the month of August, we had four Soldiers killed in Iraq. That is an incredibly low number that we are talking about. The prism has turned around. The prism has changed."
