    U.S. Army Garrison West Point welcomed a new garrison commander July 23 during a ceremony at West Point’s Buffalo Soldier Field.
    Col. Evangeline G. Rosel became the garrison’s 14th commander, assuming command from outgoing commander Col. Harry C. Marson.
    “As we stand here on Buffalo Soldier Field, I feel it quite befitting to mention that we must continue to evolve, to diversify, to keep shifting,” Rosel said. “Not just to tolerate, but to respect, learn and grow. We play a part in shaping the future. We can all lead the change.”
    The ceremony was hosted by Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, the U.S. Military Academy superintendent, who described the challenges ahead for Rosel as she assumed command. Read More

    The Army West Point athletic department recognizes the Big 12 Conference’s decision to disallow nonconference away games. Given the decision, Army football’s scheduled contest against Oklahoma at Michie Stadium on Sept. 26 has been canceled for this fall.
    “We are disappointed to lose Oklahoma from our schedule this season, however we respect the Big 12’s difficult decision,” Army Director of Athletics Mike Buddie said. “I am saddened for our players, coaches, alumni and fans to miss out on what has been such a highly anticipated contest since it was first announced. Given the rapidly changing environment in college athletics, we’ve been working on numerous contingency plans in the event of decisions like this, and have already begun the process of finding a future date to host the Sooners.”
    Army West Point is currently working on an updated football schedule and as it finalizes those plans, the ticket office will reach out next week to current ticket holders with additional information outlining available options to retain account credits for future purchases, convert credits to a 2020 tax-deductible athletic gift or request a refund.

    The Army Cyber Institute is pleased to announce its first-ever virtual Jack Voltaic experiment, a regionally focused exercise that focuses on cities’ abilities to respond to a cyberattack. This is ACI’s third iteration of the Jack Voltaic series and it will take place virtually Sept. 22 and 24, for the cities of Charleston and Savannah, respectively.
    “By conducting Jack Voltaic 3.0 virtually, the ACI and our partners have an excellent opportunity to capitalize on our digital connectivity, strengthen our ties ahead of a potential multi-sector cyber event that impacts critical infrastructure and still meet all of our original objectives,” said Lt. Col. Doug Fletcher, the Army Cyber Institute’s lead for Jack Voltaic.
    In 2016, ACI executed its first major city, multi-sector, public-private cyber exercise called Jack Voltaic. Read More
