Carlisle Barracks Holocaust Remembrance Month, April 2013

Carlisle Barracks recognizes the victims of The Holocaust, and the victims of subsequent mass atrocities, April 8th, 2013, U.S. National Holocaust Remembrance Day. Throughout the month of April, Carlisle Barracks hosts a series of events designed to educate, inform, recognize and remember victims of genocide. Our theme, “Never Again, Never Again?” is intended to challenge us to resolve intolerance of future mass atrocities.

The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as our nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust and created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims. Holocaust Remembrance Day is Monday, April 8, 2013. In accordance with its Congressional mandate, the US Holocaust Museum is responsible for leading the nation in commemorating the Days of Remembrance, and for encouraging and sponsoring appropriate observances throughout the United States. Carlisle Barracks’ US Army War College reverently recognizes the fallen, and acknowledges our role to educate, inform, remember, and prevent.

  2013 Carlisle Barracks Women’s History Month

We would like you to join the Carlisle Barracks Community in celebrating Women’s History Month throughout the month of March. We will celebrate Women’s History Month by distributing information about women’s history through our various media sources on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We will also have a presentation and a community service project planned for the month.

We hope that the information we share this month helps you reflect on the service and sacrifices American women have given not only to the U.S. Army, but also to our nation. The operational success of the U.S. Army is dependent on its ability to develop leaders, trained and supported by communities like ours, who are tolerant and accepting, who inspire and motivate, who have the vision and commitment to face the challenges ahead...and who remember, honor, and learn from Army history.
