  • Out of sight but not forgotten; Study looks at geographically dispersed Soldiers, Families

    Oct 7, 2009

The 450 company-level FRG leaders from installations across the country are in the nation's capital to attend the second annual FORSCOM FRG Training Symposium at the Hyatt Crystal City Hotel. This annual training event was scheduled the same week as the annual AUSA National Meeting and Expo to allow FORSCOM's FRG leaders to take advantage of AUSA's Family Forums and to see the exhibits at AUSA in addition to the full agenda prepared for them by FORSCOM's G1 Well Being Division. Heirakuji said the Army's Geographically Dispersed Task Force (GDTF) conducted two strategic working groups, during February and August, with about 6,000 of its key stakeholders, Soldiers and Family members. The purpose of the study was to gage the perceptions of those Soldiers and Family members, learning about their awareness, their accessibility and their use of 32 Army-sponsored services designed to improve the Well Being of Army Families. The study consisted of input from Reserve Component Soldiers and Family members who have dispersed in communities across America. The task force set out to answer the question, "How can the Army provide comprehensive and equitable support services to meet the diverse needs of Soldiers and Family Members, regardless of their location or component'" Heirakuji said.

  • NCO Academy Gives Local Youngsters Lesson Of Hope

    Oct 7, 2009

    What started out for the Soldiers of the NCO Academy as a simple afternoon of fund-raising became a lesson of hope and inspiration to a group of children at the Harvest Youth Club. A few weeks ago, many NCO Academy Soldiers spent their weekend washing cars to help raise money for the club. On Sept. 17 the same Soldiers had the chance to visit the children. The Academy raised $600; and the club will use the money to pave the back lot behind the club's main building. The paved area will give many of the children the chance to play games and learn how to ride bicycles, according to executive director Melvin Allen. He said the money raised by the Academy will be matched by Old Navy, bringing the total to $1,200. Once the Soldiers arrived at the club, the children were called to their assigned rows and stood at attention. They preformed military facing movements and then sat quietly. The Soldiers were impressed by the well-disciplined children. But the visit wasn't for the Academy Soldiers to brag about their accomplishments; it was to meet with the kids and give some guidance toward school, teamwork and life. "It's important to be here. We need to let these kids know that school is extremely important," said Sgt. Nicolette Pringle, 114th Signal Battalion, who is a student at the Academy.

  • Ordnance School Prepares For Move

    Oct 7, 2009

    Moving is a way of life for any Army family. But these days, moving from one post to another has taken on a whole new dimension for Col. Lee Merritt and his command staff at the 59th Ordnance Brigade/Ordnance Munitions and Electronics Maintenance School. While the brigade's move to the Missile and Munitions Center at Fort Lee, Va., is still more than a year away, the spring of 2011 looms large on Merritt's radar as he reviews plans to move office and classroom furniture, training and simulation equipment, and instructional supplies as well as staff and students - all while still maintaining the educational and training experiences provided by OMEMS. "Our first goal is to continue to provide quality training with feedback from the field. We want to train Soldiers so they will be prepared to hit their unit on day one of a deployment and fight and win our nation's battles," said Merritt, who will be the last commander of the 59th/OMEMS at Redstone Arsenal. "At the same time, we need to be preparing to execute BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure Commission recommendations) and move to Fort Lee. We will have lots of great facilities there that will give us more capability because they are built to meet our needs at today's standards. And, third, we need to take care of our people, both civilian and military, primarily because of BRAC. Anytime you have such a large organization move it impacts a lot of folks." There are about 1,100 military and civilian personnel from the 59th/OMEMS who conduct and support training in 39 military occupational specialties in the areas of munitions management, explosive ordnance disposal, electronic and missile maintenance, and test measurement and diagnostic equipment arenas. Each year, the staff at Redstone trains about 6,000 Soldiers, who are assigned to the 832nd Ordnance Battalion. Since its inception in 1952, OMEMS has graduated more than 190,000 students.
