In honor of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, UWEM would like to provide a chance to learn more about how the U.S. military’s various components are trained to provide emergency assistance to civil governments and communities in duress. IS-75, Military Resources for Emergency Management,, explains how the military of the U.S. responds to various levels of disasters. This can cover both Federal troops on Active-Duty or mustering Reserve Component personnel and/or National Guardsmen.
Indeed, our U.S. Interstate Highway System was inspired and created by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 1950’s after seeing the modern Autobahn built by Germany prior to World War II. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has also worked closely with state & federal government over the last century to build and maintain critical infrastructure for the United States. We thank the brave men & women who have served the nation abroad and at home, and give a weary smile of relief when they arrive to help respond to & recover from regional and national emergencies!
