UAGC/Ashford Restored to Full Active Status

Date Published: 8 Aug 22 The Department of Defense (DoD) has restored its Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC)/Ashford University (OPEID 00188100) to full, active status, effective 5 August 2022. The Department had previously placed UAGC/Ashford's MOU in a probationary status, pending review of the facts surrounding a March 3, 2022, Statement of Decision from a Superior Court of the State of California. The Department has determined that the removal of the probationary status is warranted based in part on the institution's responses to the Department's concerns, and the active engagement and cooperation by representatives of the institution. The removal of probationary status means that UAGC/Ashford (OPEID 00188100) is restored authorized access to DoD installations for purposes of participating in recruitment-type activities, to include job training, and career events and fairs. Further, eligible new and transfer students to the institution are permitted to enroll and receive DoD tuition assistance.

New Products from CALL

It is hard to believe it is already August and I am coming up on one year as the CALL Director. What a rewarding experience it has been! I am especially proud of the work being done by the CALL/TRADOC/Europe collection and analysis team in support of USAREUR-AF. We are in the process of adjusting the team composition in Germany based on the completion of our initial collection objectives. We are especially thankful for the continued outstanding support from the TRADOC Centers of Excellence and other interested agencies, and we will continue to focus the collection on lessons from U.S. Army operations in response to the situation in Ukraine. I know there is a tremendous demand for, and interest in, lessons and best practices from direct combat in the Ukraine; however, CALL is limited to the information we can gather from OSINT and other indirect sources for review and analysis. While it is tempting to make hasty conclusions from these unverified sources, CALL is taking a very deliberate approach to developing any lessons from the actual fight. We are sharing these through limited forums, but we will share more broadly once we are able to do so. In other news, be on the lookout for the FY23 Army Lessons Learned Annual Plan (ALLAP), which is at the HQDA DCS G-3/5/7 for electronic release in a HQDA EXORD probably within the next week. All ACOMs, ASCCs, DRUs, and key players within the lessons learned community concurred with the FY23 ALLAP, which will set our azimuth for focused topics and collection activity starting in two months. As always, CALL and the lessons learned community will remain flexible to adjust the plan and shift resources based on Army Senior Leader guidance and directives. This is how we remain relevant and responsive to the Army's needs. Finally, we are in the normal summer transition period here at CALL and undoubtedly across the entire lessons learned community. Please let us know if there are any new email addresses to add (or delete) from this recurring note so we can keep the communication channels open. ---------------------------------Other Announcements--------------------------------- 1.

It highlights both great successes and bitter shortfalls from rotations over the past several years. While many topics are conceptual in nature, the authors placed great effort in providing a way, method, technique, and/or template for sustainers and maneuverists alike to find success as they plan, prepare, and train for large-scale combat operations (LSCO). 22-729 Army Security Force Assistance Newsletter.

Posted On: 15 Jul 2022. URL: https://call2.army.mil/toc.aspx?document=18213 JLLIS URL: https://www.jllis.mil/index.cfm?disp=cdrview.cfm&doit=view&cdrid=173507 Lessons from Warfighter Exercises have demonstrated that units and staffs struggle to create shared understanding of the battlefield situation during LSCO. This challenge leads to many negative consequences that commanders and staffs must continuously work to overcome. This article offers a mitigating solution to address this challenge. The article first discusses shared understanding according to doctrine, highlighting the tools and processes units typically rely on to create it. Next, it describes the two main issues that inhibit shared understanding, reviewing both of their impacts on the tools/processes and their causes/contributing factors. Finally, this article offers a recommendation to alleviate this problem: Commanders should personally write and publish both their described visualization and their intent as a daily minimum requirement for shared understanding. v/r, SCOTT W. MUELLER COL, AR Director, Center for Army Lessons Learned

S1NET Message Summary - 27 Jul 22

1. FRAGO 1 TO HQDA EXORD 153-22 ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST (ACFT), DTG: 182052Z Jul 22. FRAGO 1 provides notice on publication of the new DA form 705-test (ACFT scorecard / published 01 April 2022); guidance on entering ACFT performance data into DTMS; instructions for E-4 and E-5 authorization to take an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) to establish promotion points, upgrading ACFT diagnostic scores to record ACFT, and actions to take in DTMS following the removal of a suspension of favorable actions (FLAG) as the result of passing a diagnostic ACFT; and final disposition of unit level retained diagnostic ACFT records prior to 01 April 2022. Some key new/updated information in this FRAGO: https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1129937      a. 3.B.7.A. [ADD] Diagnostic ACFT results must be entered into DTMS for RA/USAR (AGR) during the period between 01 April 2022 and 30 September 2022, and RC (less USAR (AGR)) during the period between 01 April 2022 and 31 March 2023. After these periods of time, recording diagnostic ACFT results are at the discretion of the commander; recording record ACFT results in DTMS is required.      b. 3.B.7.D. [ADD] Recommend units provide a copy of ACFT / APFT scorecards to Soldiers who are PCS'ing to hand-carry to their next duty station to support any immediate personnel action requirements in the event the data was not transcribed into DTMS as required.      c. 3.D.3.A. [ADD] IAW REF A, RA/USAR (AGR) E-4/E-5 with no existing APFT score in DTMS are authorized to take an APFT through 31 March 2023; and RC (less USAR (AGR)) with no existing APFT score in DTMS are authorized to take an APFT through 31 March 2024.      d. 3.D.6. [ADD] DTMS is modified to receive ACFT performance data for diagnostic ACFT results effective 23 May 2022. The first opportunity to enter record ACFT data is 01 October 2022 for RA/USAR (AGR) and 01 April 2023 for RC (less USAR (AGR)). Unit commanders are encouraged to use DTMS' Small Unit Leader Tool to enable noncommissioned officers to enter ACFTs for their small unit/elements through personal devices.      e. 3.D.8. [ADD] Commanders whose Soldiers are currently flagged for failing an APFT or having failed to take an APFT will remove the suspension of favorable actions (FLAG) once the Soldier has passed a diagnostic ACFT (ref k and l); provided they pass the diagnostic ACFT prior to the date they must pass a record ACFT, that is, prior to 01 October 2022 for RA/USAR (AGR) and prior to 01 April 2023 for RC (less USAR (AGR)). Any Soldier still flagged for an APFT failure after 01 October 2022 for RA/USAR (AGR) or 01 April 2023 for RC (less (AGR)) must pass a record ACFT to remove the flag.      f. 3.D.8.B. [ADD] For E-4 and E-5 Soldiers who pass a diagnostic ACFT and have their flag removed, enter into DTMS the raw score equivalent to 60 points for each of the three APFT events. Refer to Chapter 4 of ATP 7-22.01 scoring tables to determine the 60 points by age and gender for each of the three APFT events. These scores will be transmitted to the appropriate personnel systems as 180-points / passing APFT. Date of the test will be the same date the flag is lifted. This provision is valid for RA/USAR (AGR) E-4 and E-5 until 31 March 2023 and for RC (less USAR (AGR)) until 31 March 2024. 2. RESERVE COMPONENT (RC) PREGNANT SOLDIERS SERVING ON ACTIVE DUTY OPERATIONAL SUPPORT (ADOS), 25 JUL 22.

In general, RC pregnant Soldiers shall be permitted to serve on ADOS tours as long as the Soldier’s profile does not prohibit the Soldier from performing the particular duty required under the ADOS orders. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1172733 3. FY22 USAR SELECTED RESERVE INCENTIVE PROGRAM (SRIP) CHANGE 3, EFFECTIVE 26 JULY 2022. The FY22 USAR SRIP Change 3 effective 26 July 2022 is now available.

Effective August 1, 2022: Post 9/11 MHA to those on Active Duty < 30 Days

Greetings!
 
"Soldiers who are using the Post-9/11 GI Bill and serving on qualifying active duty for less than 30 days will now be eligible to receive the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) effective August 1, 2022. This also applies to spouses using transferred benefits." 
 
Background:
On January 5, 2021, the President signed the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 (P.L.116-315) into law. This new law brings significant changes to Veterans’ education benefits. Many of the changes enhance or expand education benefits for Veterans, Service members, families and survivors and provide for the improvement and/or expansion of various GI Bill® programs.
 
"Section 1009. Clarification MHA assistance for individuals who attend school while on active duty.
Clarifies that individuals pursuing a program of education while on active duty must be serving at least 30 days on active duty to no longer be eligible to receive a monthly housing allowance while using their GI Bill® benefits since they will receive a housing allowance through the Department of Defense (DoD). Effective: August 1, 2022".
 
Active-Duty orders:
                > 30 days = NO MHA
                < 30 Days = YES MHA 
 
Stay in the know and inform your peers!

 
 
Have a great day!
