FORT BELVOIR, Va. – The Command Team leaders in the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) received their first coronavirus vaccinations as the rollout of the vaccine continues at the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Jan. 14.
Maj. Gen. Gary W. Johnston, commanding general, Command Sgt. Maj. William M. Rinehart and Command Chief Warrant Officer 5 Kevin G. Boughton led by example receiving the vaccine in an effort to protect Soldiers, civilians, contractors and their families.
INSCOM's leaders were excited to receive the vaccine and appreciated the hard work by medical professionals to get the vaccine ready.
“We are not getting vaccinated just for ourselves,” said Johnston. “This is a way to help protect our families, our Command, our community and our Country.”
Johnston also encouraged others to receive the vaccine.
“While getting vaccinated is voluntary, I want to encourage everyone to get the shot, because Army readiness matters,” continued Johnston. “We need to protect the force to protect the nation.”
