Women In Military Service For America Memorial

"Born on November 2, 1916, Lina J. Stratton joined the Army on February 16, 1941 from Memphis, Tennessee. Captain Stratton was 5’ 6 1/2” tall, with blue eyes, brown hair, and weighed 119 pounds. She earned a Bronze Star Medal and SEVEN bronze service stars for her participation in the Tunisian, Sicilian, Naples-Foggia, Rome-Arno, Southern France, Rhineland, and Central European Campaigns."

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation is launching a National Registration Campaign on January 1, 2021 to add 100,000 new stories of military service to The Register.

Linda Stratton is just one of many women whose stories are registered with the Military Women's Memorial. Learn more about her service and how you can register with the memorial here 👇

For the Brits that are hoping to gain grants from the Army Sports Lottery: BLUF - Last paragraph! Please see below the latest update from the Army Sport Control Board in respect of Covid-19 UPDATE 8 – LOC FRAGO 20-247 to PROJECT PHOENIX OpO 20-239: CANCELLATION OF ARMY OVERSEAS ACTIVITY (INCL OSVs) TO 30 SEP 20 Reference: A. LOC LOC_FRAGO_20-247 dated 15 May 20. In consultation with the MOD, PJHQ and Formations (incl ASCB), all Army overseas activity planned to commence up to 30 Sep 20 inclusive has been reviewed by the LOC. The Army will continue to minimise overseas activity in accordance with Pj PHOENIX direction; all activity that does not contribute to operations, VHR, overseas resilience, or is deemed non-essential to international engagement is to be cancelled. Included within this review are Overseas Sports Visits (OSVs). Acknowledging that the COVID-19 pandemic will not be a short-term issue, nor will its impact be equally reflected across the globe, Reference A confirms that all previously authorised OSVs between 1 Jul and 30 Sep are to be de-authorised. Any additional applications for OSVs, submitted to ASCB that are due to commence during the period 1 Jul to 30 Sep, will not be authorised whilst LOC FRAGO 20-247 remains in force. Army sports should remain cautious when looking to organise any OSVs from 1 Oct to 31 Dec 20. In the current COVID-19 environment, where discretional overseas travel (which includes OSVs) is currently cancelled, OSV organisers are advised not to commit any funding to tour operators or travel companies/airlines etc. prior to receiving authority from ASCB and advice from the ASL on any potential ASL grant. See 2019DIN 10-001 (Army OSV and OTC) and 2019DIN10-015 (Army Sport Lottery) on the Publications section of the ASCB website. Organisers who commit funds against an OSV prior to receiving authorisation from ASCB do so at their own risk. At a future date, LOC will be conducting a further series of estimates to review Army overseas activity from 1 Oct to 31 Dec 20.
Today is the United States National Medal of Honor Day. The highest award for our military members that have distinguished themselves by acts of valor. There have been 3,525 Medals awarded to 3,506 individuals (19 men were awarded 2 Medals of Honor). 40% of all Medals were awarded in the Civil War
A cheeky cateran yomp, thought I'd get some training in for my challenge in may 38 miles to go 🧡
Worth recognising & blowing the AFF's trumpet......not even going to mention 7 SCOTS support for Cateran Yomps! 7 SCOTS Teams bolstered by 6 individuals over the last two years from 3 SCOTS have had 4 Teams of 10 runners over 4 years head out to Washington D.C. Money Matters: Raising over £60k to assist in getting all my teams' to the @Marine_Marathon USA, with a roof over there heeds, fed & watered during the visits. Big thanks to Steve Lamb Some Statistics: 38 brand new people exposed to the Marathon and the USA's capital, along with stating that they were in NCIS/CSI labs.....not a lot of folks can claim that feat. 6 pipers and 1 drummer adding the Pentagon to their piping C.V. Big thanks to John Wayne Troxell Raising over £15k for UK service charities incl @AFF_Team $6k Beneficiaries over the 4 years - @SSAFAPerth @Erskine1916 @LegionScotland @hrfca If it weren't for the following, it would not be possible for these trips to happen: #ArmyScotlandTrust #RoyalEdinburghMilitaryTattoo #51BrigadeandHeadquartersScotlandWelfareFund #HighlandReservesForcesandCadetsAssociation #TheRoyalRegimentOfScotlandWelfareFund #ArmySportsControlBoard #ArmySportsLottery #PeoplesPostCodeLottery #AntecedentBlueBonnets that were in a skip! #Current&Previous7SCOTSCommandingOfficers #PersonalContributions Oh, and Gerry Haughey lol for keeping me on track with the #RedTape

Hi folks, some of you will know me from the last 2years of the yomp. I've got to say that I'm humbled by the support and camaraderie of all who have been part of this amazing event. Next year starting May the 16th, I will be doing 4 consecutive loops of the cateran trail(220 miles) hopefully within 90 hours. The first loop is the cateran ultra marathon and then I'll just keep going 😁😂. I'm looking for some of you to help with support, on the ground and also promotion of the event, I'll be raising money for the AFF so let's get as much exposure as possible! Lots to plan and plenty training but I'll do it with your help. Wether it be a kind word of encouragement or helping me change my socks😂 ever tiny thing will get me closer to the finish line 💪. Cheers Neil
That's 9 of a Team of 10 from both 3 and 7 SCOTS registered for the 44th Marine Corps Marathon #MCM trip to Washington D.C. USA. Supporting the Allied Forces Foundation #AFF for the fourth year.
See you all very soon. All day setting up for what is surely going to be a cracking Regimental Dinner at 7 SCOTS for the Wounded Warriors from the Allied Forces Foundation.
Happy to announce that 7 SCOTS will be providing #LifeSupport in the way of accommodation, chefs and drivers for #CY19. #Scotland
