    Ending the Direct Ground Combat Exclusion Rule for Female Soldiers tri-signed letter

  • From the Director of Army Safety - Measuring Up

This isn't necessarily a bad thing; we obviously want the arrow pointing downward on accidental deaths. But, I don't believe it's enough to quantify what we do every day with only a single figure - safety is much bigger and more complex than that.

  • Motorcycle Personal Protective Equipment Lessons Severity of Accident

    Jan 7, 2013

    I began riding motorcycles at 8 years old when my father bought me a little Honda dirt bike. More than 35 years later, I still love the freedom and thrill of riding. I have always considered myself a skilled rider; but before I could register my bike on post, I had to complete the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Basic RiderCourse. While I didn't think the course would teach me much or improve my riding skills, I went into it with an open mind. To my surprise, I actually learned something, especially regarding personal protective equipment. That training likely lessened the severity of the accident I thought would never happen to me.

  • 'Everyone has to leave the Army some time': ACAP helps

    Jan 2, 2013

    Just as a young Soldier goes through boot camp to acclimate to military life, it would seem to make sense that, in some way, the process be done in reverse for optimal reacclimation into civilian life. But until recently, Soldiers were only required to take one class to process out of the Army -- even though the Army Career and Alumni Program already offered a multitude of beneficial services and information to make transitioning easier. Tami Culbreath, ACAP transition services manager at Fort Polk, said many Soldiers didn't take advantage of what ACAP had to offer. "They opted out of the services because they didn't understand what ACAP was or what the program could do for them," said Culbreath.
