COMMENTARY | HYDRATION TIPS

Hydration: important points to know Capt. Lisa Reid JCCoE Dietitian

It’s almost summer – the season officially begins on June 21 – and the days are quickly becoming hot and humid. While it’s always important to maintain good hydration to ensure optimal performance, the summer months can create an additional challenge in achieving this goal. However you’re related to the Fort Lee Army “family,” it’s important to understand what good hydration is. Don’t wait to feel thirsty, since thirst is a sign that your body is headed toward dehydration. Drink water throughout the day, and you’ll know that you’re well hydrated if you urinate regularly (every few hours) and produce pale yellow urine that does not have a strong odor. The Army Public Health Command’s Health Information Products e-Catalogue has a few useful visual aids to

help in assessing hydration status, at phc. amedd.army.mil/topics/healthyliving/n/ Pages/PerformanceNutrition.aspx. Perspiration is the body’s mechanism to facilitate cooling in response to the increased body heat produced through physical activity. Individuals perspire based on a number of factors: the type and intensity of exercise, environmental considerations, clothing worn and a person’s metabolic rate. One way to be sure you maintain adequate hydration is to weigh yourself before you exercise, after you’ve urinated. After exercising, weigh yourself again, noting how much time you spent and how hard you worked. Doing this in relation to different training scenarios can be used to establish your sweat rate, which can then help you understand how you need to rehydrate whenever you exercise. The weight lost should be replaced through drinking water to maintain hydration. Losing as little as

3 percent of your body’s weight through dehydration can lead to muscle fatigue and loss of coordination, difficulty in regulating body temperature, and decreased energy and physical performance, so staying hydrated is of critical importance. Another factor to note is whether your perspiration is particularly salty. If you observe this, eat salty foods in your preworkout meal. Every pound of weight lost through physical activity contains at least a few hundred milligrams to as much as 1000 mg of sodium. If you have a dusting of white, salty-tasting powder on your skin once your perspiration has dried, or if there’s a lot of white powder dried in the sweaty areas of your workout clothing, chances are that you’re a salty sweater. Eating salty foods rather than taking a salt tablet allows for greater control of how much sodium you’re replacing, so consider baked tortilla chips and salsa, pretzels, or crackers. To be well-hydrated for exercise, the American College of Sports Medicine says that adults should drink 16-20 ounces of water at least four hours before exercise and then another 8-12 ounces within 10-15 minutes just before beginning your work-

you do your homework and a lot of soul-searching before you attend your first ACAP counseling, you should have a foundational understanding of what you want to do after you have completed your term of service. “This is critical. In order to con-

out. How you should maintain your hydration status while exercising depends on the intensity and duration of the workout. If the workout is anticipated to last less than 60 minutes, the guidance is for intake of 3-8 oz of water every 15-20 minutes. If the duration of exercise extends beyond 60 minutes, the ACSM suggests drinking an electrolyte replacement beverage with 5-8 percent carbohydrate plus electrolytes in the same amount and frequency as for the shorter exercise period. After exercise, rehydration should ideally occur within 2 hours, with 20-24 ounces of water consumed for every pound lost. It’s also important not to drink too much in too short of time. Fluid intake should not exceed 32 ounces in an hour, because overhydration – also known as water intoxication – poses other health problems that can be very serious, including the risk of death. Teens who are active should consume slightly less fluid volume, but at the same frequency as adults. This week, we’ve focused on hydrating the right way. Next week, we’ll consider some hydration myths and other practices that should be avoided.

The Quartermaster Corps honored its Hall of Fame inductees and several Distinguished Units of the Regiment during the annual Regimental Review June 6 at the 262nd QM Battalion Parade Field. Sixteen former quartermasters were honored along with three units. Brig. Gen. John E. O’Neil, the Quartermaster General, said that those being inducted made magnificent contributions and he was honored to recognize them. “They provided game-changing solutions in their time that endure in our Army today,” said O’Neil. “This exceptional group of leaders is forever woven into the fabric of our corps. “These leaders paved the road we currently travel,” he continued, “as they were the strategic leaders of our corps who set conditions enabling success and supporting victory.” Several organizations were also recognized during the ceremony as Distinguished Units of the Regiment: the Group Support Battalion, 10th Special Forces

Group (Airborne) from the U.S. Army Special Forces Command and the 10th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. The 3rd Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) was also named as a distinguished unit, and will be honored in a ceremony later this year. “Today, we recognize two quartermaster units that join an elite group of only 112 others in our corps’ history that received the highest recognition our regiment can bestow,” said O’Neil. “We are all so very proud of each unit’s significant accomplishments in battle.” Retired Maj. Gen. Barry D. Bates said it was an honor to speak on behalf of the 16 inductees to the Quartermaster Hall of Fame. “Thanks to all who have contributed to making this day special for us,” Bates said. “We will do our best to live up to the honor you have bestowed upon us.” Bates made special mention of retired Maj. Gen. John E. Long, the most senior of the inductees. “The path that (Long) blazed throughout his career brought credit and respect to our corps and us

Ordnance battalion changes leadership T. Anthony Bell Senior Writer/Special Projects

The 832nd Ordnance Battalion welcomed its second commander at Fort Lee during a change of command ceremony Friday at the Post Field House. Lt. Col. Leslie D. Begley took the reins of command from Lt. Col. Demetrius Jackson in an event that was moved from Whittington Field to the field house due to persistant rain. Col. Thomas A. Rivard,59th Ord. Brigade commander, officiated at the ceremony that included various installation leaders and Soldiers. Among them was Maj. Gen. Larry Wyche, commanding general, Combined Arms Support Command. Begley, a Soldier of 19 years, is a familiar face at Fort Lee. He was chief of the Command Planning Group, Headquarters CASCOM, prior to his new assignment. During his remarks, the ordnance officer thanked his family, the CASCOM CPG and command team, and Jackson for their support. Begley also said he looks forward to working alongside the 832nd Soldiers, civilians and their families. “I consider it an honor to serve as your commander,” he said. “The Soldiers we produce are the credentials of this organization. Whether you are here for training or conducting the training, our share of responsibility is to ensure that every departing Soldier from the 832nd is a game-changing professional who exceeds the expectations of their gaining command. This is more than a goal, it’s our obligation.”

Army Birthday Fort Lee will celebrate the 238th Army Birthday with a run and cake-cutting ceremony, June 14. Units will form up from 5-5:45 a.m. and the run will start at 6 a.m. at Whittington Field on the Ordnance Campus and proceed to B Avenue, passing by CASCOM headquarters. At the completion, Maj. Gen.

Jackson, a quartermaster officer who led the 832nd’s relocation here from Redstone Arsenal, Ala., relinquished command of a battalion that trains Soldiers in 12 different military occupational specialties. He thanked his headquarters for its support and made special mention of his wife and son, who endured a two-year separation during his tenure as commander. “To my wife Kayla, and my son, Wesley, thank you for your love, support and dedication you showed me during such an important time in our lives,” he said. “This is a very joyous occasion, and I’m glad you’re here to share it with me.” Jackson also highlighted

the support of the 832nd’s circle of Soldiers and civilians and conveyed some measure of gratitude to family members for supporting their contributions to the battalion, saying, “I thank each of your families for the sacrifices they made daily so that you can serve.” Finally, Jackson highlighted Begley’s credentials and said the battalion will continue to evolve for the better. “I know the past two years have been a fast-moving train for many of you, and it will continue to pick up speed,” he said. “But please understand, you’re not changing trains, you’re merely changing conductors.” Jackson has been reassigned to Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

Fort Lee will host a “scaled-down” Fourth at the Fort celebration at Williams Stadium beginning at 8:30 p.m. Organized by Family and MWR, the 90-minute event will kick-off with music by the 392nd Army Band followed by a fireworks display at approximately 9:35 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Davis House namesake shares life, experiences Amy Perry Production/News Assistant Editor

Fort Lee’s oldest building, the Davis House. is a remnant of World War I and one of the few outward reminders of the installation’s storied past. Once referred to as the “The White House” at Camp Lee during WWI, the historic building is named after the Davis family who lived in the house from 19271953. Ironically, the Davis family had no military connection to Camp Lee, said 88-year-old Gordan R. Davis Jr., now a retired Army colonel, who resided in the home during most of his childhood. He lived with his father, Gordan R. Davis Sr., his mother, Bettie Lou Reams-Davis, and his brother. “My dad lost our farm where I was born – that was in Dinwiddie County,” said Davis, who made a return visit to Fort Lee Friday. “He started working for the Virginia State Game Commission who had taken over the 7,000 acres where Camp Lee was located during WWI. Nearly all of the buildings were torn down, aside from the house and a few others, including the old officers’ club.” Somehow, his father managed convince the game commission to let them live in the house, where the family stayed through the reconstruction of Camp Lee and into the ‘50s. In the time between Camp Lee One and Two, the area was dedicated to a

state game farm. “From 1927 to 1940 – when they committed to rebuilding Fort Lee – my dad was the caretaker,” he said. “His job was to develop game birds – quail, turkeys and deer – to distribute to various locations up on the coast.” Another part of Fort Lee’s history during that time was the field trials. Each spring and fall, Davis’ father was responsible for holding events in which dogs – pointers and setters – would go to the quail fields where they were judged on their abilities. In 1939, the federal government announced they would be taking back the land to rebuild Camp Lee, said Davis. “Some Army engineers – a major and a captain – came here and they slept in this house with us and ate with us,” he said. “They built an office building – construction headquarters – near the house. They asked my dad to stay here because he had lost his job with the state. He knew the grounds, and they hired him.” The construction workers placed Camp Lee Two on the same footprint as Camp Lee One because most of the concrete foundations were still in place. Even as Camp Lee Two took shape around them, the Davis family remained at the house. They were employed by the Army in various capacities during and after Camp Lee Two’s construction. The first commanding general of Camp Lee Two stayed with the Davis family until his quarters were built, and he took over the second

floor, said Davis. When the construction office building was completed, his mother took on the job of feeding the civilian workers. Davis said they moved their household upstairs and set up the downstairs with serving tables in a makeshift cafeteria. As the post continued to grow, the old WWI officers’ club was made into a temporary officers’ club, and his father was asked to be the manager. “In late 1941, they committed to build a new officers’ club, and they invited my mother to be the hostess,” Davis said. “She was the hostess before it was completed and remained the hostess until the last

1950s.” Davis’ father served in various manager positions at the club during that time. Camp Lee Two was the primary location for quartermaster training, and after Davis enlisted in the Army Jan. 1, 1943 and was commissioned later that year, he said his family’s connection to Camp Lee was evident throughout his career. “After World War II, I went to Korea as part of a military police battalion,” he said. “I was a first lieutenant. I took over as provost marshal of Pusan. I can’t imagine how a young, dumb anti-aircraft artillery SEE DAVIS, PAGE 8

DAVIS | Retired colonel shares

childhood experiences in Davis House Continued from page 6 artillery first lieutenant became the provost marshal of a huge port city, but I took it over from a quartermaster captain who knew my mother. I got a nice set of quarters from him.” When Davis was stationed in Alaska in the early 1950s, a new major general arrived and needed a new aide. Davis was offered the job. “The G-1 was an adjutant general officer and by that time, the AG school was also at Camp Lee,” he said. “I was called

up there – still as a first lieutenant – and reported to the G-1. He said, ‘I know your mother and father.’ We talked for a while and he offered me the job as a general’s aide. I agreed, even though I didn’t know anything about the position.” Davis said he always had a permanent connection with the post no matter where he went in the Army. At some point in the early 1950s, he and his brother convinced their parents to build a house on Crater Road in Petersburg. They believed the Army would eventually tear down the house

and leave their parents with no place to live. “We thought our parents weren’t going to be able to live here forever, rentfree,” he said. “But, now I think they were fortunate to live there for as long as they did. “A lot of people thought we owned the house,” he said. “We never owned the house; my parents situation never changed whether it was 1930 or 1942.” Davis said he has vivid memories of his childhood at the Davis House because of his experiences here. “I literally had 7,000 acres to play on as a child,” he said. “All the kids from school and church wanted to come to my home and play. Each summer, my brother would dam a creek so we would have

a swimming hole. “Under normal circumstances, I don’t think a young boy would remember this,” he said. “But it was vivid in my mind. I still remember most things. This was the greatest time of my life. I’ve had a great life.”

Weather conditions for the final leg of the journey were soggy to say the least, but that didn’t appear to dampen the spirit of the 217th Military Police Detachment and Provost Marshal Office participants who entered the post through Sisisky Gate and ran along A, Mahone and Lee avenues before exiting via the Lee Gate.

Maj. David Martin, the Fort Lee Provost Marshal, carries the torch during a state-wide law enforcement run that passed through the installation Friday morning. A dozen Soldiers and Department of the Army Civilian Police officers from the 217th Military Police Detachment and the PMO joined the event, ignoring the heavy rain and unfavorable running conditions. When it reached the end of its 8-day, 1,900-mile journey Friday evening, the torch was used to light the “Flame of Hope” during the opening ceremonies of the Special Olympics Virginia Summer Games in Richmond.

said Maj. David Martin, Fort Lee Provost Marshal, who carried the torch as the group entered the post. “Through this event, we

RESUME | Transitioning Soldiers

should prepare for job searches early Continued from page 2 “As you think about what you want to do, think about what image you wish to project and how your experiences and talents relate to your current aspirations.” Lee said. “Your own situation will shape what information you include and what format you choose to build your resume.” When writing your resume, it’s important to remember what a resume is for. It’s not an autobiography that details your entire life history. It’s not a tell-all. A private-sector resume is no more than two pages long. It includes, in truncated form, only the vital nuggets that will shine in the screener’s eyes. The resume is intended to secure the interview, and it could very well be competing with a couple hundred other resumes. That means the se-

Central Michigan University’s

lecting official has probably handed this huge stack of paper to a subordinate and told him or her, “reduce this pile to 20,” based on factors such as education or very narrow experiences that may or may not help you. The resume is intended to survive that brutal first cut. Ok, now that you have at least 12 months to prepare for transition, let’s get started on your resume. Don’t forget to include all of your certifications, licenses, awards and honors, leadership schools and all skill identifiers. Just remember to state all of it in terms that your audience will understand. For more information contact the IMCOM ACAP coordinator at (210) 466-0123.

Continued from page 16 Pinkerton, Fort Lee Provost Sergeant, thanked the community for contributing a little more than $800 to the Special Olympics in the days leading up to the run. “We get a lot of support from the garrison every year, and I think this event says a lot about our relationship with our law enforcement neighbors,” he

added. “It was just great to represent Fort Lee and do something like this alongside my brothers and sisters who wear the police uniform whether it’s military or civilian.” The run began on May 23 in Richmond and an estimated 2,000 participants supported the effort. The journey concluded

with the lighting of the Special Olympics Virginia Summer Games cauldron Friday evening at Robins Center on the University of Richmond campus. More than 1,400 athletes, their families and several hundred volunteers participated in the games that concluded with a Saturday night dance social.

This solid management program will prepare you for success in any leadership-oriented organization.
