When the sun rose in the sky eleven years ago today, it was a peaceful September morning, bright blue skies, with puffy white clouds, and the smell of fall was in the air, much like this morning. By the time it set nearly 3,000 people were gone. The most lives lost on American soil in a single day since the battle of Antietam 150 years ago.

This past June, the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command welcomed a new deputy commander to its team, Capt. Keith A. Syring of the U.S. Navy.  Syring is the second naval officer to serve in this role, taking the baton from recently retired Navy Capt. J. Christopher Daniel.  While an Army command, the USAMRMC is supported by the Navy and U.S. Air Force in its effort to create and deliver medical information and products for warfighting families throughout the world.

All of our lives have been impacted by the terrible events of September 11th, 2001. It has been 11 years since that terrible day in history.  How has your life changed?  I thought it would be interesting to spend some time at the PX, Commissary, and Library and talk to people and learn from them.  Their comments were very interesting and insightful.

Greetings to the Fort Detrick Family. I sincerely hope that each of you enjoyed your summer spending time with your families, time to yourself, enjoying the pleasures that the summer brings. Now we are approaching a change in season. For some that means children going back to school; some are going for the first time and others are going to college. Routines are changing from the summer norm. Now it is time for homework, papers, sporting events, daylight savings time ending and an array of things that can place a person off balance. Reducing some of life’s stressors can be challenging at times, but I encourage you to seek that balance in your life. Whether it is a hobby that you enjoy or just simply enjoying the roses of life, the fall or autumn season is a wonderful time of year, from the crispness in the morning air, the changing of the green leaves to radiant shades of orange, red and brown, creating a beauty that signifies a new beginning, a new life. Soon what was lush and green will slowly go away, wrapped in a cocoon waiting to reappear. Simply put, a time of reflection. A time to sit back, exhale and give thanks for the blessings in our lives.
