#MeetYourArmy – U.S. Army 1st Lt. Daniel J. Maxwell is the #4ID and U.S. Army Fort Carson Soldier of the Week. Maxwell is a field artillery officer with 4th Division Artillery - Iron Gunners. He serves as the joint air ground integration center fire support officer, a position normally filled by a captain. Maxwell has been the driving force in the 4th Infantry Division's ability to provide responsive and effective fires through his ability to integrate intelligence, fires, effects and airspace control. Maxwell was responsible for the prosecution of more than 570 fire missions during the first half of the division-level warfighter exercise in April. Due to Maxwell's efforts, the 4th Inf. Div. was able to engage and destroy more targets than any other division during the warfighter exercise. Maxwell maintains a positive attitude and he sets the example for his peers and subordinates. He is an expert at his craft, an athlete and is truly deserving of being nominated as the Soldier of the week. #SteadfastandLoyal!

Happy Birthday U.S. Army Aviation! Sending a special shout out to all aviation team members, but especially our team at 4th CAB Carson.

Following the establishment of the U.S. Air Force as a separate service in 1947, the Army began to develop further its own aviation assets in support of ground operations. The Korean War gave this drive impetus, and the war in Vietnam saw its fruition, as Army aviation units performed a variety of missions, including reconnaissance, transport, and fire support. After the war in Vietnam, the role of armed helicopters received new emphasis. In recognition of the growing importance of aviation in Army doctrine and operations, Aviation became a separate branch on April 12, 1983, and a full member of the Army's combined arms team.

Happy Birthday to U.S. Army Special Forces, especially our very own 10th Special Forces Group-Airborne stationed here at U.S. Army Fort Carson!

The first Special Forces unit in the Army was formed on June 11, 1952, when the 10th Special Forces Group was activated at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. A major expansion of Special Forces occurred during the 1960s, with a total of 18 groups organized in the Regular Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. As a result of renewed emphasis on special operations in the 1980s, the Special Forces Branch was established as a basic branch of the Army effective April 9, 1987, by General Orders No. 35, June 19, 1987.

The Soldiers marched from Taku Bar to the city of Tientsin, where they immediately went into action to help rescue besieged foreign diplomats and missionaries from insurgent Boxers. The regiment would later earn the honorary title "Manchus."
