  • June 29, 2007 Page 21 USAG warfighters receive visit from SEAC The Senior Adviser to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Command Sgt. Maj. William J. Gainey, made a trip to USAG Humphreys to visit Soldiers June 21, during his week-long tour of the Korean peninsula. Gainey gave the troops five questions to consider before making decisions -- is it going to hurt me -- is it going to hurt someone else -- is it illegal -- is it immoral -- or is it going to bring disgrace to my family name or the service that I represent? He said if you can answer “No” to all, than it is pretty safe to do. But if the answer is “Yes” to any of the questions, regardless who answers it, Soldiers should probably take a step back and think the situation through again. Gainey takes his turn after he challenged warfighters to a round of push-ups. As a listening lesson for young Soldiers, total count for Gainey -- “one.” Gainey used this execise as a tool to say -- Soldiers should always pay strict attention to what is said to them, or what is being asked of them. In the end, he gave coins to all of the Soldiers who participated in the contest.Garrison alerts to be issued during Destructive weather notification exercise toMonsoon, Typhoon season be held at HumphreysUSAG Humphreys has plans to implement USAG Humphreys will conductnew weather notification alert systems a destructive weather notification exercise July 6, at 11 a.m., in orderBy Andre D.
