  • 2014 AER Campaign begins on installation

    Jan 16, 2014

Because the privately-funded program relies heavily on contributions made by the Army Family throughout the year, installations launch AER campaigns to better inform the community. Fort Campbell launched its campaign Jan. 9 with an AER Campaign Kickoff at McAuliffe Hall.

  • Commissary begins scanning IDs

    Jan 16, 2014

On busy days with long lines, sometimes you won't catch that." The information captured during the scanning process will serve two purposes. It will verify a patron's eligibility to use the commissary and will also help identify preferences that will enable commissaries to provide products and services that are directly related to its patrons.

    Jan 13, 2014

    Fort Huachuca, AZ. - Operation Desert Storm began on January 17, 1991, at 0300 hours (1900 hours of January 16, Eastern Standard Time). It was a direct result of the invasion of Kuwait by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein on August 2, 1990. American President George H. W. Bush immediately condemned the Iraqi action, as did the governments of Great Britain and the Soviet Union. Hussein, unconcerned about these protests, gambled that his fellow Arab states would stand by and either support or ignore his act of aggression. He was wrong. Two-thirds of the 21 members of the Arab League condemned the invasion, with Saudi Arabia's King Fahd turning to the United States and other members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for help. Six days later, US Air Force fighter planes began landing in Saudi Arabia as part of a massive build-up of troops and equipment that was known as Operation Desert Shield.
