Written by Sgt. Matthew Britton
27th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – Meals Ready to Eat are convenient and essential for service members who are deployed to austere locations where hot chow isn’t yet available.

A hot bite to eat could be the difference between troops becoming complacent with risks that might be fatal, and staying alert – staying alive.

Specialist Shanice Wright, cook, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 36th Engineer Brigade, Task Force Rugged, Fort Hood, Texas, has been recognized as the second Service Member of the Week, December 5th, supporting Joint Forces Command – United Assistance and the U.S. Agency for International Disease – led mission, Operation United Assistance.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 7th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – In recent weeks, the U.S. stock market has reacted negatively to bad economic news out of Japan, China, and the euro area and positively to efforts by the corresponding central banks to spur growth. The European Central Bank did not make that extra effort on Thursday.

After strong hints that quantitative easing is on the way, the ECB’s Governing Council disappointed by failing to launch QE. ECB President Draghi indicated that further extraordinary measures could be employed “if needed.” The ECB staff and euro systems have stepped up technical preparations for QE, but Draghi seemed to suggest that there is no haste toward QE.
