It’s a fast-paced world, and no one understands that better than military families. This year, slow down for your time off and experience a place like no other.
For some “winning” is a room filled with trophies and medals — or that long awaited promotion. For others, it may be a houseful of family over the holidays.
On your next leave, discover new adventures and alternate realities. Incredible thrills along with fabulous entertainment, great hotels and exceptional dining.
An attitude of gratitude! Hunt the good stuff! That’s what I’m thinking in the middle of this hot summer. I’m especially thankful and proud of serving with all of you: our Soldiers, Army Civilians, and Families.

CHARLOTTE, NC. — On June 5, 2021, Family, friends, and colleagues of three U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers came together at 108th Training Command (Initial Entry Training) to celebrate their accomplishments and watch them take the next steps into Army retirement.
Leadership from across the 108th Training Command met at Kings Mountain State Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina on June 4 for a Staff Ride with Harold Skinner, 81st Readiness Division Historian.
Leading the Iroquois Warrior Division has been a privilege and honor of a lifetime. I want to thank each of you for serving with me during the last two years. As I look back, we accomplished much together, and I want to thank you for moving forward with me in my vision to focus on producing drill sergeants and improving the support we provide to Fort Benning, Fort Jackson and other Reserve units in our footprint.
