An Army Reserve Soldier from the 560th Movement Control Team, a subordinate unit to the 451st ESC, participated in a collective training exercise at Camp Clark in Nevada, Missouri.
The Army's first priority is readiness – ensuring that our Soldiers have the tools and training they need to deploy, fight, and win across the entire spectrum of conflict.
Memorial Day, May 28th, is dedicated to remembering the brave men and women who gave their lives while in military service. Since our country’s founding, more than 42 million Americans have stepped forward to serve their country in its hour of need, and more than a million have paid the ultimate sacrifice. We must continue to honor their courage and legacy.
While we pause in remembrance of our fallen heroes, let us also maintain vigilance over our present Soldiers in preventing accidents and losses in our ranks. This holiday break increases the possibility of accidents resulting from travel, as well as other off-duty activities. Army Safe is Army Strong!
