Soldier virtual battle assemblies
A U.S. Army Reserve birthday cake baked by Staff Sgt. Christine Vallee, the Army Reserve Pastry Chef of the Year and runner-up at the Fort Lee Army Forces Pastry Chef of the Year. Vallee baked a white cake with fresh strawberry jam and buttercream frosting-covered vanilla fondant and gum paste flowers as part of the April Soldier virtual battle assembly. As a result of COVID-19, leaders across the U.S. Army Reserve are getting creative at finding new ways to conduct training in order to maintain individual Soldier readiness, build resiliency and provide stability and security to our Soldiers and Families.
