Teammates, Friends and Family,

As we welcome this holiday season, we could not be more proud of our Soldiers, Department of the Army civilians and families for everything they have accomplished over the past 12 months. Our team’s reputation as the Army’s most lethal organization is known around the world. From the Meuse-Argonne campaign of World War I, to the global operations Phantom Warriors are engaged in today, the rich lineage of America’s Hammer endures.

This year, Phantom Warriors carried out missions across 26 countries. Whether these missions were planned in support of six different combatant commands or short-notice deployments in support of Operation Allies Welcome, COVID-19 response, or natural disasters, the III Armored Corps stood ready to answer the call – anytime, anywhere.

While serving this great nation, we continue to keep our people at the center of everything we do. In this next year, people will remain our top priority. We hope that you take some time this holiday season to focus on your mental and physical well-being. Reconnect with family and friends, and strengthen bonds with those important people across your Golden Triangle and on your squad. Rejoice and recharge for 2022 – you earned it.

Unfortunately, hazards exist this time of the year that we cannot ignore. Don’t drink and drive, continue to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, and be mindful of inclement weather. Exercise good judgement, maintain situational awareness, and look out for your teammates.

From our families to yours, we thank you for everything you do and wish you a happy holiday! God bless each of you, your families, and this great nation!

People First! Phantom Lethal!
