Second Day of AG Week – June 11

We kicked off early in the morning with sports PT at Prichard Field as we played kickball, and it was so much fun. “Developing relationships while having fun playing a sport,” quoted by CPT Daley.

Leadership Professional Development (LPD) sesson with LTC Michael Halter

On Day 2, we also had an LPD session with LTC Michael Halter, Commander of the 95thAdjutant General (Reception) Battalion.  LTC Halter talked and explained what an “Integrated Data Pipeline” is and, more importantly, explained what data is to us Army HR professionals.

Third Day of AG Week – June 12

Two events happened on this day; we had our usual coffee social at the Buffalo Groove Coffee Company and later had an IPPS-A LPD with SGM Smith.

SGM Smith ran us through what to expect in IPPS-A. The Army is currently working on changes and new functions to make our work go more smoothly and efficiently.

Our coffee socials are not only for Fort Sill AG Corps members to enjoy coffee but also to meet other HR professionals from other post Brigades and Battalions.

Last Day of AG Week – June 13

On the last day, we joined MSG Jordan’s Spin Class at Fort Sill's Fires Gym to improve our physical fitness and learn some proper cycling techniques. It was so much fun, and all members participated well.
