Fort Campbell, KY – To any passerby, the trees planted on the corner of Screaming Eagle Boulevard and Tennessee Avenue at Fort Campbell may just appear to be an ordinary, insignificant grove.

To 101st Airborne Soldiers and veterans, the meaning of those trees are as deep-rooted as the foundation they have sprouted on.

And to think, it all started with a letter.

Janice Nikkel stands at the Gander Memorial Site at Fort Campbell, Ky., with her husband and children 25 years after the trees she donated were planted in 2010. When Nikkel was 15, she donated $20 in order to have one tree planted for every life lost during the Gander crash. (Courtesy photo)

Library of CongressWashington, D.C. – The Second Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence, announcing the colonies’ separation from Great Britain on July 4th, 1776.

The Constitution provides the legal and governmental framework for the United States, however, the Declaration, with its eloquent assertion “all Men are created equal,” is equally beloved by the American people.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of January 4th, 2015

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Two days before Christmas, the government revised its estimate of 3Q14 GDP growth sharply higher (to 5.0%, vs. +3.9% in the 2nd estimate). Most of the revision was in consumer spending (a 3.2% annual rate, vs. +2.2%), which accounts for 70% of the economy.

Moreover, the monthly figures through November suggest an even stronger pace of consumer spending growth in 4Q14 (4.0% to 4.5%). It’s not hard to do the consumer spending calculation (and the monthly figures are subject to revision), but the markets seemed not to fully reflect the improved consumer outlook.

Chaplain’s mission in Liberia very important to U.S. Soldiers

 

Written by Sgt. Ange Desinor
13th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandPaynesville, Liberia – Singing, clapping, praying and the reading of words in a Bible are all commonplace in a church service. That scene hasn’t changed, even in Liberia.

Major Alfred Grondski, chaplain for the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 36th Engineer Brigade, provides religious support to all service members at the National Police Training Academy, in support of Operation United Assistance.

“I minister closely with people I work with,” said Grondski, a Trenton, New Jersey, native. “That usually doesn’t happen back in the states like it is here, because in garrison a lot of the Soldiers go to their home church; there isn’t a home church here. This gives us an opportunity to come together as a Family and worship.”

Alfred Grondski, right, a Trenton, N.J., native, of Headquarters and Headquarters Brigade, 36th Engineer Brigade, briefs Soldiers about redeployment stresses they might endure when they get home, during the Operation United Assistance mission, at the National Police Training Academy, Payenesville, Liberia.
