This week, let’s talk about the latest news that’s been happening in the US Army.
First in line is the backing out of the army in the Badger Army Ammunition Plant agreement. Channel3000 shared this news with us.
The U.S. Army is backing out of its agreement to build a public drinking water system in Sauk County over contamination concerns.
Postponing the agreement after harmful components were found in the water affected 420 people. It’s just sad that they were able to spend $80 million just from testing the water since 2010. The findings are an unfortunate turn of events but better safe than sorry.
Next would be from Charlsy Panzino from Army Times. In his article, he shared with us an Army Reserve Major General that has been named Deputy National Security Adviser. See the entire article below.
Army Reserve Maj. Gen. Ricky Waddell will be the White House’s deputy national security adviser once K.T. McFarland vacates the role, according to Politico.
The Major General has commanded the 76th Operational Response Command in Utah since October 2015. He has 22-year Army career, deployed several times in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc. Sounds like a well-deserved appraisal!
Next article would is about how the US Army Corps helping out with Lake Ontario Flooding. Check this article by Union-Sun & Journal.
Lockport Union BUFFALO (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has four-person field teams ready to respond to the high water levels along the shores of Lake Ontario.
A helping hand from US Army Corps of Engineers responding to the high-levels of the lake would greatly help the residents of Ontario. Also, offering technical support, information and permit options would definitely be a great deal to the people surrounding the area.
