From the desk of the Chief Executive Officer…

02/19/2010   Larry M. Cruz Command Executive Officer
108th Training Command (IET)

I hope you and your families had a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.  We are looking at firming up the location of our annual Full-Time Staff (FTS) Conference. We will announce the location of the conference soon. It will be a great opportunity for us to do some FTS networking and team building among our three divisions and brigade FTS while simultaneously providing our new commanding general with a warm FTS welcome. 

We will push attendees as far down as fiscally possibly but will certainly include all division and brigade FTS, at a minimum.  As we get closer to the event, we will distribute a formal email and operation order detailing the specifics.  I can not tell you how much I appreciate the hard work you all put in day in and day out in support of our Soldiers, families and the command group.


Looks like National Security Personnel System (NSPS) will remain in place through this fiscal year.  Despite the ultimate fallout, continue to recognize and reward your top notch performers while simultaneously coaching and mentoring your new and junior staff to develop and hone their knowledge, skills and abilities.  This March marks three years for me as the Command Executive Officer so I want to personally thank the Division CXO’s, SSA’s and primary FTS for all your support and hard work. 

Despite my team (Arizona Cardinals) not making it to the Super Bowl, I feel like I’m a part of a Super Bowl team with the 108th Training Command (IET).  Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing you all on the high ground.

The flag is moving forward!
