2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Erbil, Iraq – For the Soldiers of Task Force Strike’s signal section, ensuring redundant and reliable communications is their way of life. Establishing mission command – previously known as command and control – and maintaining it, is the purview of these Soldiers. Though sometimes forgotten about until a communication issue arises, their mission never pauses.

“The number one thing with any team being successful is communication,” said 1st Lt. Kalapu Fasavalu, platoon leader in Company C, 39th Brigade Engineer Battalion, Task Force Strike, from Long Beach, California. “Especially to talk to our guys all over Iraq. The Brigade doesn’t communicate with anyone if the systems are down.”

Spc. Sean Luoma, a systems operator/maintainer in Company C, 39th Brigade Engineer Battalion, Task Force Strike, checks his satellite communications equipment, May 20, 2016, in Erbil, Iraq. Luoma and other signal Soldiers deployed with Task Force Strike to ensure the more than 1,300 personnel of the Task Force can communicate throughout their area of Operations. (1st Lt.

Frazier Allen: Caring for Your Loved One – The Three Stages of Decline

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – If you suspect a loved one is experiencing cognitive decline, it’s critical to discuss financial, legal and caregiving plans immediately.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that includes three basic stages: mild, moderate, and severe.

Denial is one serious challenge families often face with Alzheimer’s. Due to the progressive nature of the disease, people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia have a limited window in which they will be able to articulate their wishes for future care, living arrangements, finances, and legal matters.

For this reason, it’s important for families to discuss their concerns and work through this denial phase in the mild stage of cognitive decline.

Start the conversation - Talk with your loved one about financial, legal, and caregiving plans. The earlier planning begins, the more involved your loved one will be in the process.

American Heart Association says Midlife Fitness is linked to lower Stroke Risks later in Life

 

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – The more fit you are in your midlife, the less likely you are to have a stroke after age 65, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Stroke.

“We all hear that exercise is good for you, but many people still don’t do it. Our hope is that this objective data on preventing a fatal disease such as stroke, will help motivate people to get moving and get fit,” said Ambarish Pandey, M.D., the first author of the study and a cardiology fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.

Being more physically fit in your mid- to late-40s was associated with lower stroke risks after age 65, independent of traditional stroke risk factors such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and atrial fibrillation. (American Heart Association)
