Arctic Adjutants Chapter Reactivates

Led by LTC Heidi Skelton-Riley, the Arctic Adjutants Chapter President, AGCRA’s northern most Chapter reactivated on 18 November 2019.

The Chapter Chartering Ceremony was held at the Warrior Zone on Fort Richardson, Alaska.  The guest speaker featured Mr. Kevin Anderson, who inspired Chapter members to be transformational leaders who ‘pay the rent’ daily to stay successful.

LTC Skeleton-Riley and her Chapter team thanked all who were able to attend and make the Chartering Ceremony a great event.  A shout out also to CW2 Melissa Skaw who executed a myriad of tasks with the Adjutant of the AGCRA National Executive Council to complete Chapter reactivation requirements. 

Chapter members look forward to the Chapter growing and flourishing with the support of AGs and Army HR Professionals throughout the state of Alaska!

AG Corps History Snippet – Horatio Gates

From COL Holly A. Gay – I was going through photos for my retirement program and I found this one.  My sister moved to Shepherdstown, WV in 2011.  As you drive to her house (about 3 miles away) – there is this sign.  I thought I would pass it along since I think it’s kind of cool… who knew right?

In case it’s difficult to read, the citation reads:  “Travelers’ Rest” – Home of Gen. Horatio Gates, built on land bought, 1763.  Gates once a British officer, joined the Revolutionary Army, and was the leader of the Continentals in decisive victory over Gen. Burgoyne at Saratoga.  (1/2 Mi. S.W.)

The sign is located on the Kearneysville Pike (also known as Leestown Road or 480).
