"The partnership with LinkedIn will offer military spouses a great opportunity to advance their careers during their times of transition. Spouses will be able to access a global network of professionals any time, from any place. They can plan their next career step before they move, as soon as they have orders [for a permanent change of station]," - Eddy Mentzer, associate director of family readiness and well-being in DOD's Office of Military Community and Family Policy.
"Some of the most valuable inputs into the support rehearsal come from the unique perspectives of the maneuver units and enablers. Their participation ensures a general understanding of how to sustain operations and aids in developing backup plans. For instance, the surgeon provides the locations of medical assets and casualty collection points, prescribes evacuation procedures, and offers mass casualty plans. All of this knowledge contributes to the commander's decision-making process." - Capt. Chad P. Scott, S-3 logistics planner, Joint Multinational Readiness Center, Hohenfels, Germany
Happy 4th of July Team 21! Enjoy your holiday however, remember to #StaySafe21!
“Opportunities like these help tell the Army’s story and our personal journey of how we ended up here in Europe. The military is diverse but once we start communicating with one another, you might be surprised to see that we have more things in common than expected," Team 21’s Deputy Commanding Officer, Col. William Galbraith. #FirstinSupport #StrongEurope
#StaySafe21: "For certain BACs, German authorities may suspend a license for 90 days, but Army in Europe Regulation 190-1 requires a revocation of one year for the offense. Whether you are a government civilian employee, government contractor or family member, if you are affiliated with the U.S. forces and receive logistical support, you must pay the host-nation fines and also abide by AER 190-1 with the revocation of your license, regardless if host-nation authorities only remove driving privileges for 90 days." - Rick Anderson, Civilian Misconduct officer, U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz.
