Samuel H. Asher, executive director of the Virginia Holocaust Museum, answers a question posed by Maj. Gen. Paul C. Hurley Jr., CASCOM and Fort Lee commanding general, during the Days of Remembrance Observance April 19 in the Lee Theater. Asher was the featured speaker for this year’s event hosted by the Army Logistics University and Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy. It was themed Legacy of Perseverance and focused on survivors and their experiences. During his address, Asher reflected on the stories of Holocaust survivors chronicled at the museum, including that of his father, a former Army warrant officer who served during World War II. Concluding his speech, Asher implored all to stand up to actions and behaviors intended to subjugate others.

Arlington National Cemetery Survey

The Arlington National Cemetery is at a critical crossroads in its history. Based on current eligibility standards, Arlington National Cemetery will run out of space In approximately 23 years and at that time will no longer be an active cemetery. The Army has been asked by Congress to consider what might be done to preserve ANC as an active military cemetery well into the future for generations to come. There are only two basic factors that... affect the life of ANC - available land and the rate at which burials are requested. ANC's location in a highly developed area inside of the Capital Beltway limits the amount of expansion available to only a few small parcels of land and at ANC's current rate of services, each acre will only extend the life of the cemetery by three months.

In July 2017, the cemetery conducted a survey in partnership with several military and veteran organizations. The more than 28,000 respondents shared that keeping ANC open well into the future is paramount. They also communicated that if eligibility at ANC is limited those killed in action, Medal of Honor and other valorous award recipients, former POWs, and those active duty service members who die on operational missions should have a place at ANC.

After analyzing the results of first survey, cemetery leadership determined there was a need for further refinement. With the assistance of the Advisory Committee on Arlington National Cemetery and military and Veteran Service Organizations, they developed a second survey, which is now available on the cemetery's website.

Arlington National Cemetery invites everyone to take the survey and continue the robust and candid national dialogue. "Your opinion matters - not only to us, but to our military and civilian leaders as they face a difficult future for our hallowed national shrine," said Executive Director of Army National Military Cemeteries Karen Durham-Aguilera.

The survey can be accessed on the cemetery's website at:

A group of children from the Child Development Center Battle sing Rudolph the Red-Noses Reindeer during the Holiday Helper Open House. Installation leadership as well as leaders from the local and state levels - like VA Governor Terry McAuliffe - were in attendance. After the short ceremony, those same leaders helped military members “shop” and choose gifts for their children in the Holiday Helper workshop. For more on the event, check out the Traveller next week!

After 4 years with Casom and working with G/3 SID, I enjoyed the people and the Tdy Trips. I believe I made a difference on the military projects I oversaw, so when i came time to retire, I was surpri...sed in not receiving a going away plaque or a momento from the section. I remember donating to numerous retirement gifts, only to get jilted when my time came. Overall good unit, but favoritism was shown. See More

I just wanted to write this quick review for all men and women in the Armed Forces here in The United States Of America past and present that defend this nation from all threats foreign and domestic. ...What citizens of The United States Of America need to realize is that their lives would not exist if it wasn't for what all people in uniform do to keep us safe. Think it's important to try to shake the hand of every Veteran and say the words 'Thank You for your service sir/ma'am.' It lets the people know who do probably have one of the most dangerous jobs in the World know you understand that premise. Stay safe and God bless you and The United States Of America. See More

1966-'67, I was finishing the second half of my "extensive" MOS 91-D20, Operating Room Specialist, First Assistant, at Kenner Army Hospital, after completing my first part of my training at Fort Sam, ...Texas, getting my 91-B, Basic Combat Medical. I was a scrub assistant working in the Operating Rooms. Working day shifts only with On Calls, every three days and one weekend a month. On the weekends, I have off, I volunteered in the hospital's emergency room, usually helping with Sick Call's for the Quartermaster's O.C.S. classes. Also, I would help with ambulance calls. Then, the day I was to graduate and qualify, I was asked to brake scrub and report to my CO's office. Where I was given my orders to take two weeks leave and to go to the Oakland Army Terminal, with orders for Vietnam, with the First Air Cav. as a Combat Medic, not an OR Tech. Ft Lee was one of the best times I had in the Military, I would have loved to have stayed. But, after my second tour in VietNam, I was able to choose my next assignment. I went to Cu Chi and was a Combat Flight Medicine with the 159th Med. Det. Dust Off working with the 25th INF., the 101st, AirBorne, Vietnamese Rangers, Viet. Marines, and various ARVN units. This was truly the BEST WORK that I ever did in Country. Thank you Fort Sam, and Kenner Army Hospital. See More

My son on his way to Germany had to spend the night in a Walmart parking lot from midnight to 6:00 am. This is the second try to get to his duty station, the first time his "superior" forgot to give h...im his plane tickets on time! What a joke of an army base. My prayer is he never has to return to Fort Neverleeve and the idiots that are in charge of this place. I pray he makes it to his duty station and hope they haven't made any more mistakes! See More

My husband and I were there in 1967. He just got back from Vietnam and we lived in a mobile home park off base. Beautiful area and I would love to come back and visit someday. Great memories!!

This place is just a glorified frat house. Privates in training spend their time getting in fights, drinking and having sex. The sergeants here have no control.

I had my A.I.T., and advanced logistics at Ft. Lee in the mid. 80''s, and found the post /nearby area to be very rewarding. I'll always have warm memories . The civilian cooks were fantastic!!
