Hello again, your MICA Organization is on track for another successful year of providing outstanding service and recognition to Military Intelligence Soldiers and their families. First Quarter 2022 trends in accountable business objectives are on track to meet or succeed annual goals. MICA annual goals are designed to ensure continued organization growth, financial stability, support MI Soldiers and their families education goals, and reward outstanding performance of MI professionals. Planned events in the second quarter 2022, will begin to regain a bit of normalcy in the lives of Soldiers and their families.
MICA National hosted the Fort Huachuca Ball at the Westin La Paloma Resort on 6 May. The theme of this year’s Ball was “Honoring the Past and Building to the Future.” It was one of the largest Fort Huachuca Balls ever sponsored by MICA, with over 820 in attendance. Two hundred and fifteen Soldiers and their guests in the grade of E-6 and below as well as Gold Star Families were sponsored by MICA. We want to give a “Shout-out” to Mike Roberts for managing the detailed planning of this grand event. How many times have you heard Soldiers say “I got this” when asked if they need help or support completing a difficult task? Mike said, “I got this” and it was done. Thank you, Mike, we all appreciate the wonderful evening at La Paloma that you set up for the MI and Huachuca community.
In June, the Huachuca Chapter of MICA will host the 2022 Hall of Fame Golf Tournament in support of Military Intelligence Hall of Fame week. This event on Thursday morning, 23 June provides an opportunity for MI Soldiers past and present to enjoy a day of golf (regardless of your swing) and storytelling with senior Intelligence leaders and future Hall of Fame members. Proceeds from the golf event are applied to the MICA’s Scholarship program. Don’t delay, register now as there is a limited number of player positions available.
As we continue to see a reduction of tension and anxiety associated with COVID 19, please remember that as Soldiers we must continue to be “Army Strong” and prepare for the job at hand. Protect yourselves and your families. What you stand for matters!
