FORT DETRICK, Md. - Army leaders met here for day one of the first Net Zero Workshop, June 14.  The three-day conference brings together leaders from over 20 installations chosen by the Army to discuss sustainability practices and share information to better reduce energy and water usage as well as the amount of waste created.  

As part of the Army's overall effort to conserve precious resources, net zero installations will consume only as much energy or water as they produce and eliminate solid waste to landfills. Instead of thinking about today, thinking about 50 years from now when our children and their families are here.

The Men’s Health Network suggests there is a silent health crisis today among U.S. men, which begins in childhood. Our society often discourages healthy behaviors in men and boys. Men are told to “suck it up,” or “take it like a man.” If something hurts, we tell our males to push through the pain. We reward men for being tough and ignoring their aches, pains and feelings.
