To change the email on your CAC and update your milSuite profile with your new @army.mil email address, take the steps at the following link. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/community/milsuite/blog/2021/12/08/your-milsuite-profile-and-the-transition-from-mailmil-to-armymil-redux. You may have to try a number of times to get this to work, and you HAVE TO use Internet Explorer.  It won’t work with Edge or Chrome.            b. If you can’t get the self-service function to work, the only way we know of to get your email changed is visit your ID card section and they can change it.       c.

Letter to the Force - MLK Day 2022

To the Soldiers, Airmen, and Families of the National Guard

Last year, more than 26,000 National Guardsmen deployed to Washington, DC, to support the Presidential Inauguration.  We stood watch by the iconic monuments and memorials that characterize our Nation’s capital, protecting the symbols of our Nation and its journey.  There are many striking images from that time, but one stands out. 

 

It was January 18, and members of the 2nd Battalion, 124th Infantry Regiment of the Florida National Guard were providing security at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.  A photographer captured a moment of our Guardsmen standing before an engraving of Dr. King’s wise and eternal words: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” 

 

Our Nation is no stranger to challenge and controversy.  But there are men and women who forsake comfort and convenience for the safety of their fellow Americans, the betterment of our society, and the hope for a brighter future.  There are men and women who believe in the principles of freedom and democracy, of equality and unity, of liberty and justice.  They are the living embodiment of Dr. King’s values and vision.  We are honored to call them members of our National Guard. 

 

Thank you for answering every time our Nation, and our communities called.  In times of challenge and controversy, when our Nation needs us most, you stand up and step forward: Always Ready, Always There. 

 

 

Sincerely,
