Time to vote

ARMY CONTRACTING COMMAND-DUIIn July the Army Contracting Command’s senior noncommissioned officer asked for help in coming up with a unit rally cry and members of the command responded.

According to ACC Command Sgt. Maj. David M. Puig, the command group narrowed the list down to four choices and now it’s time for ACC personnel to vote for their favorite.

Puig said rally cries enable and bolster esprit de corps within the unit.

“It’s something the unit can gravitate to, helps bond them together and bring them closer,” Puig said. “This command is young and now is the time to start forming the history of this command. We can develop a rally cry now that lasts for decades.”

Voting is limited to ACC employees and Soldiers and is located on the command’s SharePoint site. Only those with command access cards can vote. To cast your vote, click here.
