News Notes

Commander's Message on Martin Luther King. Jr.
“I have a dream” is one of the most famous phrases ever spoken. I’m sure each of you can identify the person who made that statement. In fact, we’re coming upon the holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of that speaker: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Let’s take some time to reflect on the incredible progress he fought for during his life and the advances made after his death. Even with that progress, though, there are still many challenges that confront us today as we have seen through the events that are unfolding across the country.

Dr. King rose from humble beginnings to illustrate the ability of one person to make a difference in their community and what a difference he made.  We can learn from his example--that each of us start or continue to make a difference in our communities, our piece of the world. But we can always do more.

As we take a break from our daily work-a-day activity to enjoy the holiday, remember that you’ve already made a vital difference. Because of your efforts, our Warfighters are equipped with the best maintained and most reliable C4ISR systems that can be produced. The equipment you support makes a difference around the world, every day.

As you spend the long weekend with your families, remember what Dr. King and many others have done and will do for this nation. Each of you is a valuable member of our team, so be safe, have fun and enjoy the holiday.
