Keeping Your Guard UpPosted: 2012/05/06
Lines from an old song that make you think summer is a time for fun, frolic and festivity. And it can be–after you’ve done your job as a Soldier.
As a Soldier, you’re required to be ready at a moment’s notice to accomplish a mission. That requirement extends to your equipment, whether you drive it, ride in it, carry it or just use it.
There’s always the temptation to enjoy summer fun (or avoid summer sun) and let some necessary jobs wait for cooler times. But missions have a nasty habit of coming up when we least expect them, regardless of the time of year.
So, if you’re not ready right now, get busy.
Do you preventive maintenance work–and do it safely–every day. You can’t be ready any other way.
