To the men and women of our military that have given their last full measure of devotion we are forever grateful.
While we remember our fallen comrades this weekend, we also want to ensure we take care of our team who selflessly serve others today. Before we conduct this long weekend, I want to thank all of you for your tremendous service and proven dedication to Fort AP Hill’s mission. This weekend provides a great chance for many of you to spend quality time with Friends and Family. This weekend also marks the start of the summer season and with it, the Army’s Summer Safety Campaign. These critical days are a time of increased outdoor activity and an increase in hazards. A little planning and careful execution will go a long way to ensuring anything you do will be done in the best manner possible. I ask you to apply composite risk management (CRM) as a life skill. Make sure you manage risks 24/7 with good and informed decisions. Motor vehicle accidents remain the number one killer of our Soldiers, Civilians, and Family members. Use the Travel Risk Planning System (TRiPs) at https://safety.army.mil , a proven tool to help identify and mitigate the risks of traveling.
Take care of each other and have a safe and great Memorial Day Weekend. Thank you again for your selfless service to our great Nation. Enjoy this holiday, but remember to always play it safe.
“Bring Hill Up!!!”
