Maj. Gen. A.C. Roper, deputy commanding general U.S. Army Reserve, talks about the value of life of every U.S. Army Reserve Soldier and the importance of reflectively listening to the concerns and needs of others.
Command Sgt. Maj. Andrew Lombardo, U.S. Army Reserve Command, speaks about the changes and implementation of the new ACFT 2.0. The U.S. Army challenges all Soldiers to pass the ACFT at the gold standard. The ACFT will strengthen our fitness culture, reduce injuries, and increase Army readiness. COVID19 has had an enormous impact on our nation and on our Soldiers. Leadership has assessed the situation and adjusted our implementation of the ACFT across the force. As a result of that assessment, we now introduce ACFT “2.0,” which will physically prepare us all for combat. ACFT 2.0 is the Army’s continuous effort to assess and evolve the ACFT by reviewing its scoring standards and alternate events. Performance data will continue to inform modifications and updates over the next few years. The Army Reserve will remain open and transparent in our scoring standards. When changes are implemented, we will provide appropriate training guidance in our doctrine. For now, no adverse administrative actions will be taken against a Soldier for failing the ACFT. This guidance is in place at least through 31 March 2022.
Maj. Gen. A.C. Roper, deputy commanding general U.S. Army Reserve, speaks about SHARP and valuing Soldiers within our ranks.
"We are a values based organization. So, when in doubt, look to our seven Army Values to be the guideposts, to be the road signs, to make sure we're on track. Racism is contrary to our Army Values. It's actually an insider threat, but it dwells within hearts, and it dwells within our ranks, and we must do everything we can to root it out and crush it. "Racism and other discriminatory practices break trust with the team and break trust with the American people. And we as an Army, we have spent 245 years building trust with the American people. And we will not break that trust today." -Maj. Gen. A.C. Roper serves as deputy commanding general of the Army Reserve and dedicated 33 years to law enforcement, including time as chief of police in Birmingham, Alabama.
"A lot of conversation here in America over last week or two since George Floyd was killed, in Minneapolis, about what does the rule of law mean. Conversations about violence, about people who are been protesting. Talks about disobedience, discord, disharmony in America. Remember a fundamental fact fundamental truth about being American. Protest, so long as it's peaceful, not only is it lawful, it's a part of who we are. We've been doing this for hundreds of years. Now we're having a conversations, and we're going to continue to have this conversation about, as a country about all the things we've been talking about for the last four years. Our responsibility to each other ... to treat each other with dignity, with a sense of mutual respect, to be aware of, and sensitive to our own implicit biases, depending on where we were raised, how we were raised, from whence we came. You are a part of the most respected institution in the United States of America. And you should be proud of that, and you should earn it every day to make sure we retain that trust of our fellow citizens. Because we come from communities across the nation around the world. We will return to those communities. Those are our teammates, those are our friends. Those are our families. Those are our partners, and they're precious. We need to maintain their support. We need to maintain their confidence that we know we're doing. We're doing the right thing, and we serve everyone. We serve the people of the United States, not a party, not one person. We serve each other. We serve the Nation."
