AUSA Activity Update
We just finished our tour of Beale AFB on the 13th of May. LTC Steve Ansel took the lead on this excursion and all who attended agreed that it was a great activity. We visited the MWD compound (Military Working Dogs), and for me, came away with a whole new respect for the Air Force. We also talked with some of the U-2 pilots before receiving a briefing on their activities. We got up close and personal with their $250,000.00 flight suits, that’s a lot of BDUs.
Our next activity occurs 20-21 July. Those of us that enjoy the activities in Reno, will be dining and playing in Reno, 20 July. We then we will be transporting to the Sierra Army Depot for a tour of the facility, 21 July. We took a similar tour in 2015, and found it so impressive we’re doing it again. If you are like me, you’ve passed this area by dozens of times, without giving it a thought. After taking this tour, you’ll be AMAZED at the mission this secluded, quiet post fulfills.
We are extending an invitation to the members of the Westmoreland Chapter, or for any AUSA member that has a desire to join us in this adventure. I would like to submit a roster to the Sierra Army Depot, 15 June 2016. If you are interested, please send me an email, and I’ll put you on the list.
20 July for dinner and play, 21 July touring the Depot.

A few years of military service enabled some of us to gain a college education. For others, it was the start of a career. For many veterans, their military service was their earliest opportunity to gain independence, responsibility, and leadership skills while serving their country. There’s a way US Army veterans and civilians can honor the traditions of their military service. That’s by becoming a member of the SGM Jon Cavaiani Chapter of AUSA!
Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America's Army, the men and women who serve or have served and their families.
In the SGM Jon Cavaiani Chapter of AUSA, we provide and support local community events and organizations supporting our armed forces and veterans.
