From the military services and around the DoD, here’s your Daily SITREP for Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016:
- Iraqi forces have momentum in the fight to retake Mosul from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the U.S. commander of Operation Inherent Resolve’s ground troops said yesterday.
- This year is the 241st Marine Corps Birthday. What others wouldn’t do, we have done. “You will sweat for each other, you will bleed for each other if you need to, that’s what true family is.” — Capt. Charles Broun
- Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James hosted a Spouse and Family Forum in the Smart Center Auditorium on Joint Base Andrews Oct. 19. This forum provided an opportunity for Air Force leaders to address issues, suggestions, and questions directly from Air Force spouses and family members.
