News and views on what matters to me: mindfulness, leadership, public relations, marketing, social media, pop culture and every now and then I will surprise you with something else.
Those that support the troops don’t expect anything in return. It is enough knowing that the support means the world to those serving and their families. The Army actually wants the public to know how much they appreciate the support. Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, Defender 6
Commander, Installation Management Command expressed that
“the generosity of America’s neighborhoods, towns, cities, and counties is astounding.”
The Army crated Army Community Covenant (ACC) a formal program that works on strengthening the relationship between the civilian and the Army community. A statement by Lt. Gen. Lynch, describes the ACC in more detail.
The Secretary of the Army created the ACC in 2008 to build mutual relationships and strengthen bonds between Soldiers, families and American communities. It fosters and sustains effective state and community partnerships with the Army to improve the quality of life for Soldiers and their families. On the ground, the ACC accomplishes two things. First, it recognizes the selfless service of community volunteers, highlighting their great personal contributions. It also shows Soldiers the compassion and support of the American public.
Supporting the troops is not limited to a corporation or a large group of people; one individual’s words can lift the spirits of service members. To learn more about the Army Community Covenant: http://www.army.mil/community.
