Ft. Belvoir, Va., June 18, 2014 — In a ceremony yesterday, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors proclaimed this week "Army Strong Week," with a tribute to local Fort Belvoir leaders, Garrison Commander COL Gregory Gadson and Public Affairs Director Mr. Don Carr, on the occasion of their upcoming retirements. The designation of a week honoring the strong Army presence and support in Fairfax County, Va., comes just after the national recognition of the Army's 239th Birthday on June 14. PEO EIS, headquartered at Fort Belvoir, held a cake cutting ceremony honoring Army Birthday June 11, and the Fort Belvoir Garrison held their ceremony on June 13.

The Fairfax Co. Board of Supervisors occasion included performances by The Old Guard Fife & Drum Corps and the Army Color Guard. A video of the ceremony can be found here:

Congratulations to our colleagues, and thanks to Fairfax County for their support to the U.S. Army! HOOAH!
