Major General Leopoldo Quintas, Director, Operations, Plans and Training, U.S. Army Forces Command, addressed the crowd in attendance during the Military Affairs Committee breakfast hosted by the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce.

During the breakfast, city leaders heard updates from leaders across Fort Bragg.

During his speech, Quintas talked about the Forces Command priority to operationalize the Army Total Force policy. "The Army National Guard and the Army Reserve are part of the team and they are a part of everything that we do," said Quintas. "When it comes to meeting requirements, I am component agnostic. When units are ready, they deploy to do the mission. It doesn't matter if you are in the Reserve Guard or regular Army. Units are units, Soldiers are Soldiers, readiness is readiness and we are all in this together."
