JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Tex. --
The theme for October is one of connectedness; maintaining the connections with wounded, ill and injured Airmen and veterans as well as their families and caregivers. It is an opportunity for us to continue the relationships we built throughout the year and to further enhance the bond that will help us get through these difficult times. It is vital, as we transition from Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month we continue the connections we’ve made further expanding the message to include how to seek help and who to call in situations that are beyond our control.
Tuesday – October 6 - 11:00 a.m. CDT - Ambassador Testimony with Staff Sgt. (ret.) Jaime Medina
Wednesday – October 7 - 11:00 a.m. CDT – A Conversation on Mentoring featuring Chief Master Sgt. Kevin James and Master Sgt. (ret.) Chris Jachimiec
Thursday – October 8 - 2:00 p.m. CDT – Shoe Show with Dexter Alejandro
Friday – October 9 - 2:00 p.m. CDT – Operation Motorsports hosted by Jason Leach, U.S. Military Liaison & Recovery Programs Ambassador
During October we will begin building towards the conversation of Warrior Care Month in November. The topic of connectedness will blend right into that conversation, allowing us to further expand the connections we have made.
