The Association of the United States Army 2018 annual meeting took place in Washington, D.C. last week. It is the largest landpower exposition and professional development forum in North America.
Yesterday, on Patriot Day, we remembered the nearly 3,000 lives lost during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Most of us can still vividly remember exactly where we were and what we were doing the day we woke up to see airplanes flying into the World Trade Center.
Earlier this year, President Donald Trump issued an executive order to improve opportunities for military spouses looking for jobs within the federal government.

May is Military Appreciation Month, a time to honor those who are currently serving in our great U.S. armed forces. On May 28, near the end of the month, we’ll observe Memorial Day — the day we honor those who gave their lives while serving our nation.
There is nothing better than filling the soul with family and friends. This past week, I headed out of town to watch my brother get married. It was such a joyous occasion filled with family and friends celebrating the love of this couple.
Last week, we had our monthly unit coffee. Like many units, we are always looking for different and creative things to do when we get together. It always ends up being such fun to spend some quality time, but we like to have some sort of activity for those attending to enjoy.
