Fort Lee Honored As Army Community of Excellence by Kimberly K. Fritz Family/Community Life Reporter
Each year, installations from around the world compete in the Army Chief of Staff’s Army Communities of Excellence Program that recognizes superior performance in installation management. This year, Fort Lee earned an honorable mention in the competition that encourages and rewards installations that optimize their environment and demonstrate a commitment to facilities and exceptional customer service. Members of the garrison command group and the Plans, Analysis and Integration Directorate traveled to the Pentagon Tuesday for a ceremony honoring winners in several categories. “This program is indeed a wonderful opportunity to recognize the great work that is being done in our Army garrisons,” said Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the Army, Installations, Energy and Environment. “It is an honor to recognize the individuals who have helped make the Army (community) a better
place to live, work and grow.” Hammack said she is amazed at how the Army has progressed in the last few years. Fort Lee has seen a great deal of growth, doubling in size and student output and still improving services and continually focusing on military Families. This is the first time Fort Lee has earned an award in the program. Garrison Commander Col. Rodney D. Edge said it was an honor to win and that he looks forward to future wins where the installation benefits monetarily. The higher the award level, the larger the reward for the installation, thus creating more programs and facilities for Families. Fort Lee’s award speaks volumes about the installations ability to support mission readiness by providing Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines and Families with state-of-theart facilities, world-class services and the best working and living conditions and overall quality of life that they so richly deserve, said Mike White, PAIO analyst. “We are always striving to do better and improve our community.”

Forty-Niners Host Change of Responsibility Ceremony by T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects
The installation’s only active duty U.S. Forces Command unit held what was probably its last change of responsibility ceremony last week. The 49th Quartermaster Group saw the reins of responsibility pass from Command Sgt. Maj. Romeo Montez III to Sgt. Maj. Jay A. Porter April 27 at the Post Field House. Maj. Gen. James L. Hodge and Command Sgt. Maj. James E. Riddick, respectively the commanding general and command sergeant major, Combined Arms Support Command, were on hand for the event. Brig. Gen. Gwen Bingham and Command Sgt. Maj. James K. Sims, the Quartermaster School commandant and command sergeant major, were in attendance as well. The 49th’s commander, Col. Rodney Fogg, was the presiding officer. The 49th QM Group headquarters element and other units are scheduled to deactivate later this year. Porter, a native of Kentucky, was previously the top enlisted Soldier for the 49th’s 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion Provisional. During his remarks, he thanked all who supported him, proclaimed his intentions as a leader and asserted to his new commander that “finishing this journey is just as important as how we started this journey.” Finishing the journey will hold special significance for Porter and the command team.

Fogg said during his remarks that Montez was everything a noncommissioned officer should be – tough, fair, caring, humble and willing to learn. He was reminded of those qualities during an event earlier in the day. “This morning after the group run, all of the Soldiers stacked up to shake his hand, give him a hug and say ‘thank you,’” he said. “He has more former Soldiers who drop by to tell him ‘thank you’ than anyone I have ever known. “They come by to see him to say, ‘Thanks.’ Thanks for being tough. Thanks for showing them the way; for being a great example… This is the essence of leadership, of the PHOTO BY T. ANTHONY BELL servant-Soldier … someone who does, not just someone Sgt. Maj.

Memorial Chapel Addition Grows Family Life Footprint by Kimberly K. Fritz Family/Community Life Reporter
The Fort Lee Family Life Center, housed in Memorial Chapel, is getting a bigger space to fill its needs. The $784,000 addition to the center is under construction now and is projected to be completed (weather permitting) before the end of the year. The construction is not affecting any of the services offered at Memorial Chapel. The chapel annex will create additional rooms that will be used for educational classes, meetings and other purposes, said Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Robert Nay, the deputy installation chaplain. The addition has been in the works for years, said Donna Calandra, Memorial Chapel building and program coordinator. “It was the vision of Maj. Gen. James E. Chambers to put all the Family activities together at Fort Lee,” she said. Calandra said Chambers, who was a previous commanding general of the Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee, had a vision for the area that is now the Child, Youth and School Services campus and Memorial Chapel. All are in close proximity to Family Housing. The Family Life Center is used for a plethora of activities including personal and professional counseling and de-
velopment. The center and its programs are open to all DoD personnel, Nay said. “Any one in need is welcome here,” he said. Calandra likened the center to an all-purpose center on the installation. It is home to Wednesday night “Dinner and Discipleship,” a pre-school story hour, a place for Prince George students who live in the Villages at Fort Lee to receive tutoring and much more. “This is a community house,” said Nay. “Military members and their Families can find sanctuary for rest. It is a place to get closer to God and their neighbors. This is a place to better themselves, rejuvenate themselves. The end result is to have a more resilient military member and Family members.” Nay said chapels aren’t just for Sunday services or when there is trouble in your life. “A chapel is a place for good times and celebration, renewal, reflection and growth,” he said. “Whatever season of life you are in, the chapel is a community place where we can encourage and comfort one another.” Likening the Family Life Center to painter Robert Cole’s “The Voyage of Life,” Nay said the chapel is a place for all the phases of life – childhood, youth, manhood and old age and the annex will provide more space to gather and encourage one another through our lives.
The first Family Readiness Group meeting at Kenner Army Health Clinic is set for May 17, 5 p.m., in the facility’s first floor break room. All members of the KAHC community are invited. Those who plan to attend and would be interested in on-site child care and those who need more information may call Capt. Marie Daniell at (804) 332-8086.
Survivor Day The Fort Lee community is invited to join public safety partners from across the Central Virginia region in Survivor Day on May 5. This event is an opportunity for residents to learn how to live safely through natural disasters and other emergencies. Each family will receive one free Survivor Starter Kit.

To find exact locations of classes and register, visit www.survivorday.com or call 211.
Vehicle Repairs Vehicle repairs and oil changes should not be performed in post housing areas, according to Section 8.4 of the Fort Lee Resident Handbook. To work on a privately owned vehicle, residents are to use the Fort Lee Auto Craft Shop because it provides a safer environment and the proper tools and equipments to make repair jobs easier, accord-
ing to the Installation Safety Office. The Auto Craft Shop is on Battle Drive in building 9035 behind the Holiday Helper warehouse. Hours are Wednesday-Friday, noon - 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. For details, call (804) 734-6859.

It will be televised nationwide. The parade was founded and is organized by American Veterans Center, a non-profit organization, and is presented by Boeing. For details, visit www. nationalmemorialdayparade.com. Veterans and Families of the fallen can call (703) 302-1012, ext. 227.
KAHC ‘No Shows’ Kenner Army Health Clinic is asking patients to help reduce its “no show” rate. Patients to fail who show up or call to cancel appointments negatively affect the productivity of the health care provider teams, waste time and money and take an appointment away from someone who may need it, said KAHC officials. A scheduled appointment can be canceled by calling 1-866-533-5242 at any time. Clients are asked to cancel appointments at least 24 hours in advance or as soon as they know they will not be able to keep an appointment.

Army Launches New Site for Civilian Development by Julia Bobick Office of the Army G-3/5/7
WASHINGTON â€“ To improve access to information and increase participation in Army Civilian training and leader development opportunities, the Army G-3/5/7 Training Directorateâ€™s Civilian Training and Leader Development Division launched a one-stop website consolidating information about career program occupational and functional training, competitive professional development and leader development opportunities, as well as application procedures and course registration links. The site at www.civiliantraining.army.mil serves as an integrated resource for civilian employees, supervisors and Army leaders interested in learning more about the training and opportunities available to the Army Civilian corps. Since several Army organizations administer the various leader development courses, developmental assignments and training, Army civilians and supervisors have in the past had to visit several different sites to find out about mandatory training and professional development opportunities. â€œWe wanted to provide civilians and supervisors a

comprehensive site to help them more easily navigate the myriad opportunities in Army civilian training and leader development,â€? said Vicki Brown, chief of the Civilian Training and Leader Development Division. â€œItâ€™s our goal to ensure all civilians know about the available training, often at little or no cost to their units, and take advantage of the training that fits into their individual career goals and supports their organization outcomes.â€? The updated website includes course descriptions, prerequisites and registration links forArmy Civilian Education System, or CES, courses, Supervisor Development Course requirements, Competitive Professional Development and Academic Degree Training, advanced opportunities like Senior Service College, Army Congressional Fellowship Program and the Defense Senior Leadership Development Program, as well as career management tools like Army Career Tracker. The Civilian Training and Leader Development Catalog (when fully deployed on the site) will be the official resource for information on centrally managed civilian training, professional and leader development training opportunities, replacing the information currently found in the Army Civilian Training, Education and Development System catalog. <RX DUH LQYLWHG WR
