Casualty center relocates

The Alaska Casualty Assistance Center has relocated to the basement of Building 55. 

The CAC is responsible for reporting local and theater casualties of active duty service members and their dependents throughout Alaska. 

The Alaska CAC area of responsibility is Fort Richardson, Fort Wainwright and Fort Greely and includes the Alaska National Guard and Reserve personnel.

The Alaska CAC staff consists of the casualty chief, casualty operations manager, mortuary affairs specialist, mortuary affairs coordinator, memorial affairs coordinator and training instructor.

If you need assistance you can call (907) 384-3811. 

The after-hours on-call cell phone is (907) 440-4377 or the Command Center at 384-6666. E-mails may be sent to acac@richardson.army.mil.


Family Zone closing

Fort Richardson’s Family Zone in Building 337 will cease operations Nov. 9.

Parents who wish to watch their own children while working out can now go to the Arctic Oasis on Elmendorf Air Force Base. 

This high-quality, multi-use facility has a wide variety of aerobic and strength training equipment, playgrounds and recreational venues – all under one roof.  

The facility is open seven days a week and on holidays. It is located at 9497 20th Street on Elmendorf. For more information, call 552-8529.

For parents who prefer to have a professional watch their children while they work out, officials announced last week that Fort Richardson has received the funding to construct a small child development center next to the Buckner Physical Fitness Center. This new center is expected to open by fall 2010.

eCYBERMISSION needs you

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Volunteer registration for the U.S. Army’s eighth annual national eCYBERMISSION competition is now open at www.ecybermission.com.

The competition is a free, Web-based, science, math and technology competition allowing students in grades six through nine to work together to solve a community problem using the scientific method.

eCYBERMISSION is currently looking for volunteers to encourage interest in science, math and technology among America’s youth.

Volunteers are needed for the following roles: CyberGuides – serve as online mentors for students during the registration and submission phases, and provide resources and guidance to help students make discoveries on their own; and Ambassadors – serve as the “face of eCYBERMISSION” in the community by visiting local schools to generate enthusiasm for the competition among administrators, teachers and students; promoting eCYBERMISSION through e-mails and phone calls, and coordinating with contacts to post the web site link on related web sites; and encouraging other individuals to be eCYBERMISSION Volunteers.

CyberGuides must have an active Department of Defense security clearance and Ambassadors must have either an active DoD security clearance or an approved federal background check.

For more information and to register as a volunteer, please visit www.ecybermission.com or contact the eCYBERMISSION Volunteer Program at (866) GO CYBER (462-9237) or via e-mail at volunteerprogram@ecybermission.com. To register, please use the code Challenge.
