IMCOM CG Sends – Martin Luther King Holiday Safety Message (2012)

Next Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, recognizing a true American
hero. Let’s celebrate the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and
healing to our Nation and commemorate the values he exemplified in his life
and teachings — courage, truth, respect, integrity, humility and service.

These same values are at the core of what the Army strives to cultivate in
each and every Soldier and Civilian. They are what make the Army the
Strength of our Nation. As you enjoy this holiday, take a moment to reflect
on these values and on the strength in our commitment to serve each other.

MLK Day is part of the President’s United We Serve initiative, calling on
all Americans to make a positive impact in their communities through
volunteer efforts. This special holiday provides a great opportunity to
honor Dr. King’s vision through a day of community service.

As you head into the long weekend, let me remind you to watch out for your
own safety and for your family and friends. Be aware of potential risks in
your surroundings and take appropriate precautions. You are part of the team
making Army installations stronger, more capable, and more effective in
supporting Soldier and Family readiness. We need you back, alive and well.

Thank you once again for all your hard work in support of our Nation, Army,
and the Installation Management Community. Have a safe and relaxing weekend.

Support and Defend!
LTG Mike Ferriter
