Soldier Today

Thursday, December 14, 2017
From the SMA’s Leader Book

We want the Army to be society’s model of fair treatment. We want to assure that all soldiers are treated fairly, not because it is necessary but because it is right. Those units that have the fewest incidents are those whose noncommissioned officers really know their men and take a personal interest in their welfare.
SMA Silas L. Copeland, USA Ret.

Health and Fitness

A rose by any another name

Helps prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s disease, kills cancer cells, relieves IBS and Crohn’s disease, stops seizures, fights Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis, ends joint pain, migraines, and pain in general, relieves anxiety and stress like nothing else, and much, much, more. In fact, the things people swear CBD (cannabidiol) can do are almost unbelievable. But not only are the recovery stories real, scientific evidence is mounting that CBD may well be one of the most effective natural substances ever discovered.


IN what other job can you do things NOT the RIGHT WAY, but the “MILITARY WAY”?
