Rocket City Chapter Community Service

By CW4 (Ret) EuGene Roberts

This past Thanksgiving, the Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen in Huntsville, Alabama, allowed the poor and homeless in the Huntsville & Madison County area to celebrate the holiday with a proper Thanksgiving lunch.  This celebration had hot food, friends, and fellowship.

Members of the AGCRA Rocket City Chapter supported and took part in their 8th Annual Thanksgiving lunch at the Soup Kitchen.  They prepared a full range of holiday goodies for those in need.  80 to 100 needy North Alabama individuals were able to enjoy fellowship and good food.  The Soup Kitchen served turkeys, ham, dressing, mac and cheese, green beans and dozens of assorted pies, cakes and cookies.

The Rocket City Chapter throughout the year took time to help provide food that will help serve over 2,000 meals every month at the Soup Kitchen.  Thanksgiving wouldn’t be as special without the Rose of Sharon community.  “We’re playing games.  We’re laughing.  We’re telling stories with one another.  This is what Thanksgiving is about,” said Ms. Theresa Wilson, CEO of the Rose of Sharon.  “By volunteering we are part of the solution for the homeless in the Tennessee Valley.  Being a part of something bigger than ourselves, we wanted to help bring hope and opportunity to men, women and children who are physically and spiritually broken and exhausted,” added Ms. Wilson.

The Rose of Sharon serves breakfast and lunch from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM every Monday through Friday.  Their website is https://roseofsharonsoupkitchen.org/.

Thanks to everyone from the Rocket City Chapter that came out to help for this year’s Thanksgiving lunch.

Update, 1 December 2018

1. STATUS OF THE AUTOMATED UCFR (ELECTRONIC UNIT COMMANDERS FINANCE REPORT). From USAFMCOM: On 28 Nov 18 the web UCFR tool was brought back on line. DFAS has confirmed that the November data is loaded in the tool. If the local finance office has sent a PDF version of the Unit Commanders Finance Report to the unit which was reviewed, signed, and returned with documents to make corrections (if needed), there is no need for the Commander to do anything in the web UCFR tool by the 10th of December. However, if the Commander goes into the web UCFR tool and downloads the report for certification, the Commander MUST certify that report within the web UCFR.  If not, the system will not let the Commander pull the December report when they become available.  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-541376
