Dear Soldiers & Families:
Please allow me to thank you for all the hard work you have done this past Fiscal Year (FY). It has been a really great year and I look forward to working with all of you in what I am sure will be another fantastic year marked by a high level of mission success and teamwork!
I want to personally thank the command Full Time Staff (FTS) for all the hard work they put into the day to day Best Business Practices operation of the command. For the second straight year, the command has won the Army Community of Excellence Award. This is due in part to the hard work and support that the FTS gives to the command and the Directorate Troop Program Unit (TPU) staff.
I also want to thank the Directorate FTS and the 95th Div. and 98th Div. Chief Executive Officers (CXO’s), Supervisory Staff Administrators (SSA’s) and senior FTS leaders for working hard to ensure that as a Command we finished the FY at 114% fill on Military Technicians and Department of the Army Civilian positions. The Training Command Headquarters and Drill Sergeant School finished out at 133% while the 95th Div. and 98th Div. finished out respectively at 109% and 107% positions filled. This is indicative of the strong leadership we have in the field and the great teamwork by everyone making this our strongest year ever.
Please join me in welcoming the 104th Training Division (IMT) to the 108th Training Command (IET) family. Throughout my meetings with the 104th primary FTS and TPU staff, I have been thoroughly impressed with the positive attitude and professionalism they bring to the table in transforming cadets into commissioned officers via ROTC. We have already begun the planning process for our annual FTS Conference and based on the voice of the customer (your survey feedback); we are looking at conducting in Puerto Rico, San Diego, Nashville or Orlando. Due to funding constraints, I am not sure if we will have an opportunity to conduct our CXO/SSA workshops but we will do our best to sponsor those if possible. The annual FTS Conference will definitely be a go and will be conducted in the June timeframe. As Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, please keep those Soldiers who are in harms way in your thoughts and prayers. On behalf of the Command FTS Directorates and me, we wish you and your families the happiest of holidays. Please enjoy but be safe!
The flag is moving forward!
