Written by Sgt. Matthew Britton
27th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – Every job in the military has its own unique level of difficulty.

Some even become proficient in their original jobs and those of others that they have little-to-no experience in. But troops adapt, overcome and just like the Army song, they keep on rolling along.

This week, Sgt. Yinette Lizardo, water purification specialist, Company E, 2nd Battalion, 501st Aviation Regiment, Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas, was recognized for not only her own outstanding performance, but also the additional jobs she completed for the troops here.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 14th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Retail sales figures for November were stronger than expected, while results for September and October were revised higher. The report suggests that consumer spending growth is on a moderately strong path in 4Q14 – and we aren’t even close to seeing the full impact of the drop in gasoline prices (expect a bigger benefit for the consumer in the first half of 2015).

The retail sales data did little to offset the negative mood in equities. A further sharp decline in crude oil prices added to the anxiety. A sustained drop in oil prices will be a significant negative for oil producers here and abroad.
