In what is likely one of the last public posts by the Army’s highly-praised AWG:

The Soldiers, Department of Army Civilians, and Consultants of AWG invite you to digitally join us for the group’s color casing ceremony on May 13th at 10:30am. The event will be live-streamed on Facebook and MS Teams. Due to COVID restrictions, we had to limit the number of in-person guests for the ceremony. If you have already RSVP’d then we look forward to seeing you in person.

Think. Adapt. Anticipate.
