  • Healthy boundaries needed in relationships

    During Teen Dating Violence Month, Army Community Service would like to remind teens that setting healthy boundaries in relationships means figuring out your own boundaries.

They apply to any kind of relationship you have—and remember, violence is not ok, in any relationship.

  • Red Ball Express and the unsung heros of WWII \ Predominantly African-American unit saves Europe, aids Allies

    “It was dusk, somewhere in France in the autumn of 1944. A Jeep carrying a first lieutenant in charge of a platoon of trucks crested a hill. Instinctively, the young officer scanned the horizon for enemy aircraft that sometimes swooped in low for strafing runs. The skies were empty. But as far as the eye could see, ahead and to the rear, the descending night was pierced by specks of white and red light–cat eyes, the blackout running lights of hundreds of trucks that snaked along the highway.”
