Message to the Force from the Acting Secretary of the Army

 The Original Signed Message

 

To the Soldiers, Civilians, and Families of our Army: 

 

 I want you to know that I have an unceasing admiration for your remarkable sense of duty and devotion - thank you. It has been my highest honor to serve alongside you. Having served in many capacities both in and out of uniform for over three decades, starting out as a young Ranger private to most recently as the Acting Secretary, it has been an utter privilege.

I have continued to be amazed, impressed, and humbled by the state of the Army and with the professionalism, capabilities, and hard work of our Soldiers and Leaders. Our Army is strong. We are ready. We are modernizing. We are deployed supporting and defending our Nation. It is your deep commitment to preserving and defending our Constitution that makes our Army what it is today. A bedrock of the Army's long history is continual forward progress, renewed by transition, and guided by dedicated leaders. As I step away, know that I will continue to be a strong advocate for the Army Team. May God bless you, your families, and this great Army. 

 

Army Strong! 

 

Sincerely, 

John E. Whitley

SMA Sends: Career Intermission Program

 Team,

 

We must consider People First – sometimes that means looking at the long term as opposed to the short term.

 

As an Army, we must stay flexible as we fight to retain the talent we have cultivated in our Soldiers. With this in mind, I want you to look at the establishment of the Career Intermission Program (CIP) as a permanent option. Since its inception as a pilot in 2014, CIP has provided Soldiers the opportunity to take a sabbatical from their Army career to pursue personal interests.

 

I do not want to lose the focus on troops re-enlisting at their eligible gates. However, temporary circumstances have been known to divert Soldiers into permanent separation. It is our job to make sure Soldiers are at least aware of this opportunity before they permanently get out.

 

There are no specific reasons to apply, and no list of acceptable criteria which could account for all the variables life throws at us. Many have utilized CIP to get a degree, take care of a family member, raise a child, align professional timelines with a spouse, or acquire a professional skill. Regardless of the reason, eligible Soldiers can be placed in an Individual Ready Reserve status for up to three years.

 

Here’s some basic information about the program. Service Members:

Retain their healthcare

Receive a movement allowance

Retain on-post access and benefits

Incur a two-month ADSO for every month in the IRR

NCOs E5-E8, Warrant Officers, and Officers are eligible

Must have less than 17 years of creditable active Federal service as of the requested entry date

Retain 2/30ths of their monthly base pay

Are guaranteed a job to return to after their hiatus

               

Informed decisions are better decisions. I’m asking our leaders to stay engaged and use their judgement to recommend this program to help ensure we aren’t losing our talented Soldiers unnecessarily.

 

Thank you all for what you do for our Nation.

 

-SMA

Updated Mask Guidelines for Vaccinated Persons

 The Original Signed Message

 In support of updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines released this afternoon, subject to any applicable labor relations obligations, fully vaccinated DoD personnel (who are at least two weeks beyond their final dose) are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors at DoD facilities. All DoD personnel should continue to comply with CDC guidance regarding areas where masks should be worn, including within airports. Personnel who are not fully vaccinated should continue to follow applicable DoD mask guidance, including continuing to wear masks indoors. The Department will review and revise all applicable Force Health Protection guidance to address the new CDC guidelines. 

 

Until this updated Force Health Protection guidance is issued, commanders and supervisors may make exceptions to this memorandum as necessary to ensure a safe workforce. Commanders and supervisors should not ask about an employee' s vaccination status or use information about an employee' s vaccination status to make decisions about how and when employees will report to a workplace instead of teleworking.

Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month Letter from CNGB

The Original Signed Message

To the Soldiers and Airmen of the National Guard

I had the opportunity to visit Camp Shelby, Mississippi, for Exercise Southern Strike.  It was an impressive display—a large-scale, joint combat exercise with active and reserve components, and foreign partner forces.  But 78 years ago, Camp Shelby was the training ground for one of the most-decorated military units in history:  The 442nd Infantry Regiment.

The 442nd Infantry Regiment was almost entirely composed of second-generation Japanese Americans, known as Nisei.  Roughly two-thirds of them were from Hawaii; many had served with the National Guard there.  The remainder were from the mainland where they had been interred in camps far from their homes simply because of their Japanese ancestry.  Despite the tremendous racism and suspicion they faced from their fellow Americans, the Soldiers of the 442nd answered the call to serve the Nation they loved, and on April 22, 1944, they left Camp Shelby and deployed to Italy.

Their motto was “Go for Broke”—and they did.  Among their most heroic endeavors was the rescue of the so-called “Lost Battalion,” the Texas National Guard 1st Battalion, 141st Infantry Regiment.  The Texans found themselves trapped in the Vosges mountains without food or water, enduring rain and bitter cold, and under assault by German forces.  It took more than five days of bloody, close-quarters combat, but the 442nd fought their way through and freed their fellow Soldiers.  It came at a cost; the 442nd sustained more than 800 casualties.  Because of their heroism, the 442nd earned more than 4,000 Purple Hearts, 4,000 Bronze Stars, 560 Silver Star Medals, 21 Medals of Honor, and 7 Presidential Unit Citations for their service in World War II.

When the 442nd returned from Europe, they were honored by President Harry Truman, who said, “You have fought not only the enemy, but you have fought prejudice, and you have won.  Keep up that fight, and we will continue to win—to make this great Republic stand for just what the Constitution says it stands for:  the welfare of all the people all the time.”

Thank you to the Asian-American and Pacific Islanders who have proudly served and continue to serve our Nation.  Together, we will continue to fight for the welfare of all.

 

Sincerely,

 

Daniel R. Hokanson

Critical Update: Army 365 (A365) Transition/Migration (Please read as this will effect all of the WAARNG)

 ALL WAARNG SOLDIERS and any User of a DoD Common Access Card (CAC),

 

BLUF: CVR TEAMS will stop working on 15 JUNE 2021. All "Active" Users should expect to have access to the Army365(@army.mil account formally @us.army.mil) environment before the license for CVR(@cvr.mil account) expires on 15 June 2021. If you haven't go recieved an email regarding this be patient and look for it in your DISA Email (@mail.mil). The Army has redone the licensing contracts for these services that included CVR Teams, Office 365, and what we will now be on is called ARMY 365(A365).

 

 

Three PHASES of migration are being used, and is being reported by Army, it is going faster than expected. The updated timeline for the transition to ARMY 365(A365) has moved forward pending a few migration decisions. Here are the new migration dates to be aware of:

 

Phase 1 migration(Users that had an O365 Account but "did not" log into their O365 Account) :

People that were active using "CVR TEAMS" but did not log in to OFFICE 365(O365) after 01 March 2021, about 384k Users across entire ARMY Enterprise. Migration will be done this weekend 22-23 May 2021, for "CVR TEAMS" Users.

 

Caveat for the Army Migration Team: Email routing troubleshooting may delay this date. UPDATE: This has been resolved

 

Phase 2 migration(Users that had an O365 Account and "did" log in and/or used their O365 Account):

People who logged into O365 after 01 March 2021, about 220k users across entire ARMY. Migration is expected to be completed next weekend 29-30 May 2021, for CVR TEAMS Users

 

Caveat for the Army Migration Team: Teleconferencing licenses may delay this date one week.

 

Phase 3 migration(Everyone else...):

All other Users(everyone with a valid Common Access Card(CAC) for this service will be migrated to complete the A365 migration plan.

 

 

ADDITIONAL NOTES:  Users on the prior version of O365(@usa.army.mil account) will lose access earlier than expected.  After their migration date they will not be able to log in to the O365, so it is important that all data on Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint is backed up and saved locally(temporarily on your computer, Z:\ or U:\ Drives) so it can later be uploaded to the new A365(@army.mil account, formerly @us.army.mil).  This will be the same for the CVR(@cvr.mil account) before 15 June 2021 as "EVERYONE" will lose TEAMS access on that date.

 

Currently, "private" and "public" TEAMS are available, but "channels" can only be public.  Expectation is to enable private channels early June 2021.  This is a concern for PII and CUI(FOUO) data so all teams should be made private and users manually added or given an invite code.  Public teams are accessible by anyone so only create those if that is the intent.  Scans are already being done for PII.

 

Audio conferencing licenses are expected to be available on 08 June 2021, but there is no data on how the Army will distribute them.  Audio conferencing should still be done on CVR if possible until then.

 

There may be Outlook online accounts created for each user, but the primary email should still be DISA Email(@mail.mil account) since the Army is having routing issues with the Email Services on A365 UPDATE: This has been resolved.  When the email migration happens (planned for National Guard during November 2021 to February 2022) everyone will be notified prior that they are being migrated. Continue using the same email address until further notice.

 

If there are any additional questions please join the discussion on teams https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a1795b607fb7249f3b2b8daff31a8bfdd%40thread.skype/Office%2520365%2520(O365)%2520TEAMS?groupId=adf0914b-fe97-43cd-93bd-5f8e60b6fbb3&tenantId=21acfbb3-32be-4715-9025-1e2f015cbbe9
