MEMORANDUM FOR All Newly Assigned Soldiers to Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 10th Infantry Regiment, Fort Leonard Wood, MO 65473
SUBJECT: New Soldier and Family Welcome Letter
1. Welcome all families and friends of the Soldiers in Charlie Company. We invite you to use this website to track your Soldier's training progress and to obtain information on Family Day and Graduation. This site, along with our facebook page entitled, "Charlie, 3rd BN 10th Infantry" will have updates with the information you need. It is our desire to keep you informed and answer as many questions as you might have.
2. During the next ten weeks your Soldier will be undergoing an intensive, fast-paced program of instruction that focuses on rigorous physical conditioning, confidence building, teamwork, individual and team tactical training, and various weapons instruction. Your Soldier will be challenged physically, mentally, emotionally, and ethically as they transition from their civilian status into the Warriors that will lead the Nation. I have no doubt that they will be physically and mentally drained as we mold them into a productive U.S. Army Soldier. I ask that you continue to support them throughout their adjustment to Army life and keep the following in mind; everyone that wears a uniform has felt the same rigors that are currently being placed on your Soldier.
3. I can assure you that the staff of Drill Sergeants training your Soldier are a very dedicated group of professionals who are genuinely concerned about the health, welfare, and training of each Soldier. We consider your Soldier to be the Army's most important asset; I will personally ensure that we make your Soldier�s basic training experience both challenging and rewarding. Drill Sergeants that I work with are of the highest caliber and as a team we strive to provide your Soldier with the highest level of training that the Army can offer.
4. It's important for you to remember that their transformation from civilian to Soldier does not come easy. A good attitude and desire to succeed are vital factors in BCT as we continue to demand a great deal from these volunteers. As a family member or significant person in your Soldier's life, you can have a substantial influence on their success. A letter filled with your care and encouragement can remind them of your support and contributes more than you can imagine. Let them know often how proud you are of their sacrifice to become a citizen Soldier.
5. As your Soldier's Commander, I am here to answer your questions. Call me at 573-596-7593 with any questions. I am responsible for everything that happens or fails to happen in this Company and with the Soldier you have trusted me with. My cadre and I look forward to giving your Soldier 100% of our care and effort throughout their training. I ask that you continue to support your loved ones and to be confident that they are in very capable hands.
