On February 5, 2022, Alabama ARA, Dr. Shane Lee, briefed the 3rd Medical Command (Direct Support) senior leadership in Peachtree City, Georgia. During the briefing, he covered several key talking points including: The impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on the civilian work force, education and recruitment/retention of medical personnel, how the pandemic affects the strategic readiness of the U.S. government to face domestic and international health risks, the original concept and mission of the Army Reserve, and some of the challenges operational leaders face when training for war.
On February 10, 2022, ARA Gary Wattnem met with Iowa State Representatives Shannon Latham, Henry Stone, other legislators and the Governor's staff to promote tuition assistance for Army Reserve Soldiers.
From October, 2021, until now Ambassador Koslov (HI) has participated in five events to support Army Reserve Soldiers and their mission. Some major highlights for this period include guest speaking event for the USAREC Portland Recruiting Battalion, and helping break ground for a new VA Community Center at Kalaeloa, HI.
On February 28, 2022, the House of Representatives passed Senate Bill S.321. This bill awards the 6888thCentral Postal Directory Battalion (Six Triple Eight) the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Congressional Gold Medal. The Six Triple Eight was a WWII 855-member African American unit of the Women’s Army Corps (WACS), and the only Black WACs to serve overseas in Europe during WWII. They were a self-sustaining unit that improved troop morale by clearing a multi-year, multi-million mail backlog in record time. They are now the only female military unit to receive this honor. ARA Cummings was the national Citizen Advocate/Champion for this legislation.
