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.

Clarksville, TN – If you suspect a loved one is experiencing cognitive decline, it’s critical to discuss financial, legal and caregiving plans immediately.
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.

Dallas, 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.

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.
