A tri-signed letter from the Acting Secretary of the Army, Chief of Staff, Army and Sergeant Major of the Army, subject:  Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day "Remember, Celebrate, Act! A Day On, Not a Day Off!" January 18, 2016

Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
"Remember, Celebrate, Act! A Day On, Not a Day Off!" 

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter."

January 18, 2016

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., challenged the Nation to recognize that our individual liberties rely upon our common equality. The passage of time has only served to deepen our understanding of the importance of Dr. King's words and of his life's work.

Today, we honor Dr. King, remembering the strength of his leadership, the power of his words, and the inspiration of his call for justice. We celebrate his legacy of freedom and equality for all.

We ask our entire Army Family to use this opportunity to recommit ourselves to achieving Dr. King's dream: an America where every person is treated with dignity and respect. By living our Army Values, we embody all those ideals advanced by Dr. King's ideal and continue to be Army Strong!
