    Army Surgeon Gen., Lt. Gen. Patricia D. Horoho's "Eat, Sleep and Move" campaign is designed to help achieve a healthy lifestyle. She cares--and she wants to help you enjoy a healthy lifestyle. And since we're all in this together, taking consideration of family members and friends can complement, as opposed to complicate, working this program into our busy lives. A healthy lifestyle can actually be easier to achieve if we get our families and friends onboard. The key is to start small -- do something. Every little bit is a healthy improvement.

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. (August 14, 2013) -- What happens in the hours and days following an attack on U.S. Army Special Operations Command's headquarters by a heavily armed gunman will be critical. To that end, key USASOC staff members and their Fort Bragg counterparts sought to work out the recovery details during a drill called Garnett Embrace. The two-day exercise aimed to shore up the plan to keep key operations moving while an investigation and building reconstruction, along with the expected confusion, are underway. Based on a worst-case scenario involving an active shooter who terrorizes the command, representatives from USASOC's various directorates worked through a series of tasks, from the casualty evacuation process to restoring basic communication.
