As you know, training is the foundation for everything we do.
Despite the hot weather and summer thunderstorms, we will
continue to train. It is paramount to our success as a unit that
we maintain a high level of proficiency in our Warrior Tasks. It
is an honor to serve with you, and I am proud of our Soldiers’
determined resolve to train regardless of the blazing
temperatures and howling winds.
Safety must be at the forefront of our minds throughout this
summer, whether we are training or relaxing in the backyard with
our Families. For those of you new to Fort Hood, the heat can be
relentless and hot weather injuries will creep up faster than
you might expect. Take extra precautions when spending long
periods of time outdoors. Every single Soldier is vital to our
Brigade’s success and we can’t afford preventable injuries. Take
care of each other and take care of your Families.
Finally, CSM Dunston and I urge you to take advantage of the
beautiful weather we’ve been enjoying and spend time with your
Families and friends. As always - Be safe! There is no sadder
occasion than losing a friend, Family member or teammate. The
Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area is a great spot for
swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, biking and barbecuing.
Austin is only an hour away and there are several wonderful
parks and trails down there where you can enjoy some well-earned
time off during the summer. Look out for one another, have fun,
and enjoy the amazing state of Texas.
Rail Gunner Strong!
