Specialized Soldiers Attend Character Development Training In Havre De Grace
HAVRE DE GRACE - Joining the military is about more than following orders and operating heavy equipment. Trust, leadership, and character are essential for United States soldiers. To facilitate these values, a group of soldiers recently participated in “character development” training in Havre de Grace.
The training was held on February 2 and 1o at an “offsite location” in Havre de Grace, according to the Department of Defense. Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Daniel D. Kang, the chaplain for the 20th Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosives (CBRNE) Command, hosted the training session for Soldiers serving in the one-of-a-kind group.
Kang said the character development training session focused on the character, competence, and commitment needed to honorably fulfill the oath of service and serve with distinction in the U.S. Army.
“One of the characteristics of an Army professional is character,” said Kang. “Our nation and the American people trust us that the Army will serve the nation and accomplish missions ethically. We must continue to develop our character to maintain our readiness to serve the nation as an Army professional.”
Headquartered on Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, the 20th CBRNE Command supports military operations worldwide and domestic authorities nationwide.
The command is home to 75 percent of the active-duty Army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) specialists, as well as the 1st Area Medical Laboratory, CBRNE Analytical, and Remediation Activity, five Weapons of Mass Destruction Teams and three Nuclear Disablement Teams.
