description

Summary

A new jointly-used Armed Forces Reserve Center in Great Falls, Montana is now named the Capt. John E. Moran and Capt. William W. Galt Armed Forces Reserve Center.
Soldiers in the U.S. Army Reserve’s 364th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) and the Montana Army National Guard dedicated the newer building during an official ceremony Oct. 21 to the two Great Falls natives who each earned the Congressional Medal of Honor—Moran for his heroics in the Philippine-American War in 1900 and Galt for his bravery during the Second World War.
The ceremony hosted several members of the Galt family and featured speakers that included the Montana National Guard Adjutant General, the governor of Montana, and state and federal legislators. The 364th ESC’s commanding general also spoke during the ceremony.
"Today we don't have the same adversaries that we did back then. However, all know that if we don't stay vigilant, if we don't maintain a ready Army, if our soldiers don't keep up the same kinds of skills that we ask them to, those things might be lost," said Brig, Gen. Greg Mosser, Commanding General of the 364th ESC.
The 889th Quartermaster Company and the Montana National Guard will use the Great Falls Reserve Center for their monthly battle training assemblies.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
