~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: Fort Lee, Virginia

Fort Lee is a United States Army post and headquarters of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM), U.S. Army Quartermaster Center and School (QMCS), the Army Logistics University (ALU), the U.S. Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), and the U.S. Ordnance Center and Schools (OC&S) formerly headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. A U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) unit, the 49th Quartermaster Group (Petroleum and Water), is stationed here.

There are four major commands on Fort Lee: the Combined Arms Support Command, the Quartermaster School, the U.S. Army Garrison, the Army Logistics Management College, and the headquarters for the Defense Commissary Command.

The Petroleum Training Facility (PTF) is a branch of the Petroleum and Water Department. At the PTF site, military personnel train by using equipment and the latest technologies as well as tried-and-true methods. The staff at the PTF maintains more than 14 acres of facilities and instructs more than 3,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines of all ranks each year.

Ensuring that students can safely and effectively receive, store and issue petroleum products on a wide range of fixed sites and mobile equipment is the PTF mission. The PTF system consists of 4 terminals, 2 pump stations and 11 storage tanks with a total storage capacity of 2.1 million gallons.

The Military in the Field (MIF) site is a tactical training facility of the Petroleum and Water Department. After MIF training, commanders receive mission-ready soldiers who can operate and maintain equipment to standard.

The MIF provides the necessary facilities and equipment to train Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Department of Defense civilians and foreign military personnel. Soldiers, officers, warrant officers and noncommissioned officers train at the MIF site in almost every course taught at Fort Lee, VA.

Learn More About Fort Lee HERE!

Since 1957 the U. S. Army Quartermaster Museum has preserved the history and heritage of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps, the Army's oldest logistic branch.

 From the Revolution to the Persian Gulf, America's secret weapon is the one that keeps soldiers supplied with food, water, clothing, fuel, shelter and other things they can't survive combat without. This weapon is the Quartermaster Corps, and at the Quartermaster Museum, you’ll see how it’s sustained American soldiers since 1775.

Slacker?

February 21, 2012

While studying the book of Proverbs in my small-group Bible study, our leader suggested that we change the description of a lazy person from a sluggard to a slacker (6:6,9). Ah, now he was speaking my lingo. I immediately started thinking of all the people I consider to be slackers.

Like the men and women who fail to teach and discipline their children. Or that guy who refuses to help around the house. Or those teenagers who neglect their studies and play Internet games day and night.

If we’re honest, we’re all susceptible to this. What about being a “prayer slacker” (1 Thess. 5:17-18), or a “Bible-reading slacker” (Ps. 119:103; 2 Tim. 3:16-17), or a “non-exercising-of-our-spiritual-gift slacker” (Rom. 12:4-8), or a “non-witnessing slacker”? (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).

If we are not doing what we know God wants us to do, we are certainly spiritual slackers. In fact, when we refuse to obey God, we are sinning.

Listen to these challenging and convicting words from the book of James: “It is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it” (4:17 NLT). Let’s not be spiritual slackers.

When we know what God wants us to do,
But then we refuse to obey,
We’re ignoring the voice of the Lord,
And sinfully choosing our way. —Sper

We may make excuses for not obeying God,
but He still calls it disobedience.

Read: Proverbs 6:6-11

How long will you slumber, O sluggard? —Proverbs 6:9
Bible in a year:
Deuteronomy 17-19

All’s well....I guess. Didn’t know it was Presidents Day so I had a bunch of things to do and places to go. When I turned on the radio news at 0500 this morning I discovered that I could sleep in an extra hour.....and still get nothing done.
