FORT HOOD, Texas — 3d Cavalry Regiment will host a Sisters in Arms mentorship event here Sept. 17 at the Community Center Events and Bingo Center.

The Sisters in Arms Mentorship Program – Fort Hood provides members an opportunity to gain knowledge, insights, networking opportunities, and connections from experienced leaders within the Army profession, as well as leaders within our greater Fort Hood Community and surrounding areas.

Programs are designed to foster career development, to expand personal and professional networks, to provide a safe and respectful forum to share experiences and insights, to cultivate future leaders, and to build friendships and teams at the lowest echelons on which we can continue to develop an environment founded on trust, dignity, and respect.

This mentorship program directly supports the III Corps Operation People First campaign and helps build up the capabilities of the next generation of leaders, while attempting to provide opportunities not widely known.

Sfc. Latoya Greene, from Regimental Engineer Squadron, 3d Cavalry Regiment will serve as the facilitator for the Friday event.

Greene won the Fort Hood Strongest Competition this past April, pulling a 5,600 pound dually truck during the series of events. She has also been a vocal advocate for soldiers on issues including resiliency, leadership, standards and fitness.

Sfc. Astin Muse and Sfc. Janina Simmons will be guest speakers at this event.

Simmons, assigned to 5-52 Air Defense Artillery Battallion, 11th Air Defense Artillery Brigade out of Fort Bliss, Texas was the second female non-commissioned officer to graduate the United States Army Ranger School, and the first black woman to do so.

Sfc. Astin Muse, assigned to Fort Knox, Kentucky is a cancer survivor and widely known as social media influencer Amuse. Her candid videos give her over 35,000 followers humorous glimpses into serious Army issues.

This R.S.V.P. only event is open to all units on Fort Hood and will be streamed live on NCOPD Live.
