High Desert Warrior Digital Edition – April 6, 2018


Ft. Irwin High Desert Warrior – Digital Publication serving the National Training Center and Ft. Irwin, CA

High Desert Warrior Digital Edition

If you’re looking for news and information on happenings at Ft. Irwin National Training Center, you’ve come to the right place. The USO partnered with non-profit organization Hiring Our Heroes early this month to present a transition workshop for military members who may be planning to separate from service and seek civilian employment. If that sounds like you or someone you know, check out our front page story. We also have features on several training exercises that have been held at the NTC recently – in addition to our front page story on the 11th ACR’s training rotation in February, learn more about the February Army/ Air Force joint training exercise on page 4, and the 3rd Cav’s decisive action rotation that wrapped up at the end of the month.

In community news, we have a dose of cuteness on page 12 as we look back at the March Daddy-Daughter Dance; a bit of “aww” on page 10 as we meet a lost fur-baby dubbed “Runaway Rae”, and a look at Weed Army Community Hospital’s presentation of the children’s play “Stone Soup”, which shared object lessons on healthy habits with our kids in an entertaining – and tasty! – way. You’ll find that story on page 13, on the same page with information on the newly renovated Memorial Fitness Center, speaking of healthy habits! That’s just a sample of what we have prepared for you in this month’s issue of High Desert Warrior, the only digital publication serving Ft. Irwin and the NTC. Click on the link above to read High Desert Warrior on your computer or mobile device. “Like” our Facebook page for daily updates on news coming out of Ft. Irwin and other military and defense installations in the desert southwest. It’s a privilege to serve you – have a great weekend! #aerotechnews #fortirwinarmynews
