On April 1, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, U.S. Army Garrison, conducted the first Soldier readiness processing, or SRP, on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall’s Bldg. 417 in more than 18 years and the first ever recorded for JBM-HH’s Headquarters Battalion.
The SRP was designed to be proactive in HHC, USAG, HQ Bn., and garrison readiness in medical, dental, training, personnel records as well as other things needed for an SRP. The event included a JBM-HH Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program interactive scenario-based experience for unit members to participate.
“It feels good to be a Soldier, doing Soldier tasks,” said JBM-HH Commander Col. Kimberly Peeples, “it feels good to be told to stand in line and show my ID tags.”
Peeples was referring to the Army’s universal effort to improve readiness numbers, something that an SRP affords combat units, but is rarely used in a garrison environment.
