Command group expresses travel safety for Presidents’ Day holiday

PERSPECTIVE

U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence and Fort Gordon


Morrison Morrison On Feb. 20, our nation honors the birthday of President George Washington and remembers all of our past Presidents’ contributions to our nation.

Over this long weekend, many of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airman, Marines, civilians and family members will be traveling, or taking a well-deserved break. We are still in the height of the winter season and hazardous conditions can still present dangers when travelling to locations outside of the local area. I encourage everyone to check the weather and have a plan before you venture to your destinations.

Commanders will ensure vehicle safety inspections are current and conduct safety briefings accordingly. Safety briefings should always emphasize seatbelt usage, hazards of drinking and driving, driving too fast for conditions, and to never text and drive.

We thank you for all you do for our nation and our Army. Have a safe and accident free Presidents’ Day weekend!
