CASEY GARRISON - Soldiers, Family and community members gathered for the official opening of the Family Readiness Center March 3 at USAG-Casey.

The ceremony, organized by members from the 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team, featured remarks from Maj. Robert Gillette, brigade chaplain and Karen Graves, wife of Col. Thomas Graves, 1st HBCT commander.

Warrior Country has had more command sponsored approvals than in previous years, which means more families have started calling Warrior Country home. With the rise in the number of families in Warrior Country, come more questions pertaining to their Soldiers unit and things to do on post.
The FRG helps family members with questions such as these and much more. Now the 1st HBCT FRG has a home where Family members can gather and get advice and answers to their questions.
The FRG center is located by the Community Activity Center and behind the Post Exchange on USAG-Casey. The building is easy to find and recognize as it is on the corner and on the way when heading towards the PX or the Gateway Club.

"Before we can be 'Army Strong,' we need to be Family Strong, then we can 'fight tonight' and remain 'second to none,' "Karen said.
