The Mighty 509th's Commanding General's Communications Team (CGCT) supporting US Army Africa (USARAF) participated in the Vicenza school’s Career Day. The CGCT is a valuable asset that provides critical communications to the USARAF Commanding General and enables mission command across the African Continent. When not supporting USARAF missions, they conduct community engagements such as this as a means of building ties to the USAG-Italy community. The Mighty 509th continues to be a team of trusted professionals dedicated to providing customer service excellence.
The Mighty 509th HHD Wolverines had a great opportunity to focus on individual Readiness and train on combatives. Our partners in MEDCOM provided instruction and demonstrations for various drills from FM-25.150 (Combatives). The Solders enjoyed learning basic techniques like "Trapping the Arm" and "Passing the Guard". This type of training helps get our Soldiers and unit in a "Fight Tonight" mindset - a staple of Strong Europe Commanders intent.
The 509th Signal Battalion is composed of a team of trusted professionals and continue to accomplish great feats. The battalion held an awards ceremony to recognize the outstanding achievements of its members as well as the efforts of the senior NCOs that have completed their tour with the Mighty 509th. Every member of the team is a critical component to building a #strongeurope and together "We Strengthen!"
Congratulation to SGT Leeanna Ramirez, 509th Signal Battalion, and her husband SGT David Ramirez, 173rd IBCT (A), on their reenlistment. A reenlistment is a significant event for a Soldier as it is a renewal of the oath they swear to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. However, not every Soldier is able to reenlist. They were selected for reenlistment due to their hard work and dedication to mission accomplishment. Reenlistments are a tool available to a commander to retain the most qualified Soldiers within the formation and allows the unit to maintain the readiness posture necessary to deter aggression across the theater. 509th is committed to sustaining the force through retaining the utmost technically and tactically proficient Soldiers.
The 509th Signal Battalion continues its pursuit of excellence. Recently, the 2d Theater Signal Brigade Command team visited USAG-Italy to present the ‘Mighty’ 509th with two NETCOM-level awards: The NETCOM Army Award for Maintenance Excellence and the Supply Excellence Award for Battalion Supply Operations. A multitude of criteria goes into each of these awards and the battalion was once again selected by NETCOM as the best in the command. The 509th will now compete against units across the US Army for both awards. These awards are proof of the battalion’s commitment to sustaining the force, a main line of effort for the Network Enterprise Technology Command, which are headed by the battalion’s logistical team and other elements of the battalion. Congratulations to an outstanding team of professionals!
The Might 509th continues to focus on Soldier lethality, in which Soldiers qualified on their M4 and M9 weapons. Lethality is a critical component of being able to #fighttonight and being #readytofight. In addition, HHD continues to build a #strongeurope by empowering its NCO's and junior leaders to lead and conduct rifle marksmanship through PMI and zeroing the weapons before the qualification.
