To our Service Members, Civilians, Veterans, Retirees and Families,

I am sure you are aware that for the past week we have been forced to curtail our operations due to the effects of Hurricane Irma, and I truly appreciate your patience and understanding. Our community was fortunate in the fact that this historic storm did not cause any catastrophic damage to our installation, though the majority of the post was without power until 9PM on 10 Sep 2017.

with the restoration of power, I am pleased to announce that we will be returning to normal full service operations tomorrow morning, 12 Sep 2017, though some facilities will open later as we continue to clean up fallen trees and debris around Fort Buchanan. I suggestcalling in advance to ensure the program or facility you intend to utilize is open.

I would also like to take this time to thank our Crisis Action Team (CAT) members and first responders for the excellent job they did in preparing for and anticipating the effects of the storm, while ensuring the safety of the entire community. I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to the Directorate of Public Works (DPW), the Logistics Readiness Center (LRC), the Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR), the Exchange and Commissary, and our Directorate of Emergency Services (DES) for the extraordinary effortthey put forth in sustaining critical services and restoring basic infrastructure support. I am extremely proud of your accomplishments,dedication, and commitment to restoring key capabilities and easing the burden of our entire community. Well Done!

As you read this, remember there are many that are still suffering the effects of the storm in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean regionand in the Continental United States. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers
