At the conclusion of their mission, they were allotted a specific time to prepare the howitzers to be sling loaded out. This training is conducted twice a year and is part of progressive training evaluation which begins with individual testing, and continues through battalion-level. (Photo by Staff Sgt.

Good Afternoon #AMCOM! At a Jan. 11 retirement ceremony, Dan O’Boyle, a senior public affairs specialist with the Aviation and Missile Command, right, accepts a certificate of appreciation signed by AMCOM commander Maj. Gen. Doug Gabram presented by AMCOM deputy to the commander Bill Marriott. O’Boyle, who also received a Superior Civilian Service Award, retired with just over 39 years of service. He worked in public affairs for the Aviation and Troop Command in St. Louis, Missouri, before moving to Redstone Arsenal in 1997 as part of the merger between ATCOM and the Missile Command. O’Boyle served in Army public affairs as a Soldier in the Panama Canal Zone before beginning his civil service career. Brig. Gen. Robert Rasch, deputy commander of the Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, and Gabram were among the well wishers who attended the ceremony. “I always preached the fundamentals,” O’Boyle said. “If you stay with fundamentals, you can’t go wrong. Get your facts and communicate. Build fundamentals up front and you will be well served. Stay on the high ground and keep your powder dry.”
Please join us in congratulating Mr. O'Boyle! #aroundAMCOM
