The United States Army has a lot going on for the past weeks. With that, we’ll be sharing with you the highlights of the army community in this entry.
First in line is the article from Fort Drum. In here, they shared the first veteran’s licence plate that has been used in New York, in line with the celebration of the Veteran’s Day.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday announced that new service branch-specific license plates are available for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Marines.
Next is an article once again from Fort Drum. Governor has announced that $1.25 million in funding is available through two grant programs designed to assist farmers across the state.
The New Farmers Grant Fund helps new and early-stage farmers, and the New York State Veterans Farmer Grant Fund supports farms owned and operated by military veterans. Both programs are designed to promote growth and development in the state’s agriculture industry.
Next is from the Association of the United States Army on the success of swaying of defense policy bill.
The compromise version of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act contains several provisions urged by the Association of the U.S. Army involving pay, housing, medical benefits and a continued increase in the number of Total Army soldiers.
Another one is an article from the Association of the United States Army, that talks about the new uniform of the soldiers that is about to be unveiled.
The Army is edging closer to announcing a new dress uniform, expected to be a World War II-style olive green jacket with khaki pants that was once affectionately called “pinks and greens.”
Another article from the Association of the United States Army is where they tackle the move of modernization of the group.
Modernizing the Army to meet the demands of future warfare is not a simple thing. It requires a “radical shift” in how the Army does business and a dedicated team to lead the effort, the acting secretary of the Army said Nov. 8.
And last but not the least, is this article once again from the Association of the United States Army. Concern has been raised towards the readiness of the Aviation.
Uncertain funding, coupled with the high demand for aviation assets for training and operations, has raised concerns about the Army’s ability to avoid mishaps and modernize its fleet while maintaining readiness.
With all these, we can all confidently say that the army is going somewhere better with all the upgrades and benefits being provided. Let’s hope and pray always for the lives of our heroic soldiers who battles for the sake of us, their countrymen.
