The 2022 Holiday Season is fully in effect with Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Boxing Day all soon at hand. It is important we remember and celebrate the spirit of friendship and family bringing us together. As you join with family and friends to celebrate, we ask each of you to enjoy the festivities of the season and remember this year's blessings upon you, your family, and your teammates at Natick Soldier Systems Center.
The holiday season provides opportunities to travel and celebrate with family and friends. With winter approaching, please remember there are additional risks that come with icy roads, weather causing austere travel conditions, and the inherent risks of traveling long distances. Please prepare properly for your travels and give you and your family enough time to arrive safely.
With the joy and celebration of the holiday season, some of us may also struggle. If you notice a member of your team or you are exhibiting signs of sadness, please ensure that you direct them to help and seek help yourself. Please watch out for each other so that we can enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.
We want to thank each of you for your hard work throughout the year. The mission you do directly supports and ensures the success of our Nation's warfighters. Best wishes to your families and you for a safe and happy Holiday Season.
Army Safe is Army Strong!
Winning Matters! Winning Together Matters More!
