Army SASH Tab helps create a conversation to end sexual harassment and assault
By David Overson | Sept. 21, 2020
JOINT BASE LANGLEY - EUSTIS, Va. – Soldiers Against Sexual Assault/Harassment, or SASH - is making its way throughout the Army, one teal tab at a time. Staff Sgt. Saquawia Pennington, an Army victim advocate assigned to 111th Military Intelligence Brigade, Fort Huachuca, Arizona, takes a great deal of pride in wearing the teal tab on her Army combat uniform to ensure Soldiers know who their representatives are at a glance, and providing the sexual harassment/assault response and prevention training required to trainees in order to wear one too.

'Just completely different' 59-year-old BCT graduate reflects on the experience
By Rebekah O'Donnell | Sept. 14, 2020
Fifty-nine-year-old Marine and Army Reserve veteran, Staff Sgt. Monte Gould graduated from Basic Combat Training with the 1st Battalion 34th Infantry Regiment Aug. 27, making him the oldest individual to complete this version of the BCT (but not the oldest to complete BCT ever. In 1999, a 68-year-old entered Basic Training). Not only did Gould complete BCT, but he finished in the top 10 percent of his training cycle. Gould’s unit cadre said his “candor, leadership expertise and technical proficiency are unmatched.”
