Abrams Commanding General, FORSCOM Aviation Safety Stand Down Directive Dec. 3, 2015, Fort Bragg, N.C. Senior Leaders Aviation stand down concludesOn Point Impaired driving prevention key to Holiday safetyDecember is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. While observance, it is an important opportunity for leaders to engage their Soldiers on the hazards of drunk driving before the holiday exodus. At present, alcohol is not a major factor in most private motor vehicle accidents involving Soldiers. Yet the Army does experience a handful of drunk driving crashes every year. In December 1982, President Ronald Reagan signed a presidential proclamation announcing National Drunk and Drugged Driving Awareness Week, explained Pamela Morton, state victim coordinator for MADD Alabama. MADD was a key member of his presidential commission on drunk driving, and over time that awareness week has evolved into a month-long observance. By Cheryl Pellerin, DoD News WASHINGTON (Dec. 3, 2015) -Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced that beginning in January, all military occupations and positions will be open to women, without exception. the secretary said women will be able to contrib ute to the Defense Department mission with no barriers at all in their way. and lead infantry Soldiers into combat, Carter added. Theyll be able to serve as Army Rangers and Green Berets, Navy SEALs, Marine Corps infantry, Air Force parajumpers, and everything else that was previously open only to men. Over the past three years, he added, senior civilian and military leaders across the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Special Opera tions Command have studied the integration of women into these positions. Last month I received their recommenda tions [and] the data, studies and surveys on which they were based regarding whether any of those remaining positions warrant a continued exemption from being opened to women, Carter said, noting that the Army, Navy, Air Force and SOCOM said none of the positions warranted exemptions. In a memorandum to the secretaries of all military departments and others, Carter directed the military services to open all military occupa tional specialties to women 30 days from today a waiting period required by law and by that date to provide updated implementation plans for integrating women into the positions now open to them. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announces the opening of all military occupations to women during a press Secretary of Defense: All military occupations open to women
