This is our third month of providing an in-depth look into the pillars of the Army’s Ready, Resilient and Army Strong campaign. I appreciate the comprehensive efforts to increase understanding for our service members and their Families. This month, we’ll focus on the following three pillars of our campaign: Sexual Harassment/Sexual Assault Response and Prevention; Sponsorship; and Risk Reduction. As leaders, we must expand our knowledge and educate our servicemembers, civilians and Families on these critical topics. By increasing understanding and access to these programs across our installation, we strengthen the resiliency and readiness of our entire team.
If you experience or witness an instance of sexual harassment, contact your unit chain of command and SHARP representative, or for civilian personnel, report the behavior immediately to your supervisor or to the Equal Employment Opportunity Office. To report a case of sexual assault at Fort Bragg and the surrounding areas, call 911 or contact the Fort Bragg Sexual Assault Hotline at 584-4267.
For questions and concerns about sexual harassment or sexual assault, contact your unit SHARP representative or the Fort Bragg SHARP program manager’s office at 432-8113/9729 or visit our website at www.bragg.army.mil/18abc/SHARP.
Units and assigned sponsors can receive Fort Bragg welcome packets at the Army Community Service Relocation Readiness Program Office or online. These welcome packets contain valuable information on Fort Bragg and the surrounding communities can be shipped to incoming Soldiers and Families well in advance. Visit www.fortbraggmwr.com/welcome-packet-request for more information and to request a Fort Bragg welcome packet. The Army Community Services’ Relocation Readiness Program also offers sponsorship training. Classes are held at the All American Conference Room 149 in Gavin Hall. To register, call 432-4676. TASP training is also available at apps.militaryonesource.mil/esat, and the Fort Bragg TASP Liaison Office can be reached by calling 396-0273 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leading in our Armed Forces is a sacred trust and responsibility. We will earn this trust daily by treating others the way we expect to be treated — with dignity and respect. It’s an honor to serve others, and our actions will exemplify Army values and assure the welfare of all in our care. Through our combined and concentrated efforts, we will provide opportunities for all in the Fort Bragg community to flourish and ensure that Fort Bragg remains ready to answer our nation’s call and continues to be the place that we’re proud to call home.
Next month, we will focus on the final three pillars of our Ready, Resilient and Army Strong Campaign: Army Substance Abuse Program; Suicide Prevention; and Transition: Soldiers for Life.
Thank for you for your continued commitment to strengthening our resiliency and thank you for what you do each and every day in service to our nation.
