The Judge Advocate General's Corps of the United States Army is the legal arm of the United States Army. The Corps is composed of Army officers who are also lawyers and who provide legal services to the Army at all levels of command, and also includes legal administrator warrant officers, paralegal noncommissioned officers and junior enlisted personnel, and civilian employees. The Judge Advocate General is a lieutenant general. All military officers are appointed by the U.S. President subject to the advice and consent of the Senate, but the Judge Advocate General is one of the few positions in the Army explicitly provided for by law in Title 10 of the United States Code, and which requires a distinct appointment. Officers who have already been appointed to another branch of the Army are administratively dismissed and simultaneously recommissioned anew as judge advocates, rather than merely transferring branches.

From the series “Snow flakes”, ink and paint on paper, 30 x 30 cm. Someone teaches us that the snowflakes are different from each other since we are small children. We learn that they are formed with a crystallization process that follows a geometric pattern that changes each time, indefinitely, never having the possibility of a repetition. The ice crystal takes shape slowly, expanding from a central point to the surrounding space, obeying to some strict symmetrical scheme, until all unallocated space is filled with these icy branches. What happens if in this process, the atoms of the water, in the meanwhile they are solidifying, encounter an obstacle, a slag, an impurity? Will it also remain trapped inside the grid? Will it be absorbed by this geometric cage, or would be able to break the symmetry, imposing its diversity?

The 130th Engineer Brigade is an engineer brigade of the United States Army based in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. It provides engineering support to the United States Army Pacific command. The brigade specializes in bridging operations. The brigade traces its lineage back to an engineering regiment active during World War II, but the brigade itself did not see action until the mid-1990s. As a part of the V Corps for most of the Cold War, the brigade was stationed in western Europe for decades as a deterrent to a possible Soviet invasion. It finally saw action during Operation Joint Endeavor, providing bridging assistance for the international force in the Bosnia region. Several years later, the brigade was the primary engineering component during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. With numerous difficulties, the brigade was forced to take on several unexpected missions during its year in Iraq. It saw a second tour in 2005 and a third in 2009 in which it once again was the primary engineering component in the country. The brigade deployed to Afghanistan as the Theater Engineer Brigade in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from 2013-2014. The brigade had a long history of supporting V Corps of United States Army Europe from 1969 until 2007, during which it was based at Warner Barracks in the Bavarian town of Bamberg, Germany. That ended when the brigade was relocated to Hawaii to support United States Army Pacific as part of a major restructuring plan of the US Army. Reactivated in 2008, the brigade is currently at home in Hawaii.

Today the 108th Division is known as the 108th Division (Institutional Training). The 108th Infantry Division was a World War II ghost division. It was only after the war that the Army officially made a 108th Division. Post-World War II and the 108th Airborne Division The 108th Division was activated in 1946 following World War II. Then called the 108th Airborne Division, it was headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. The division's nickname, the Golden Griffons, was born from its initial air-ground mission. Griffons are legendary animals from Greek mythology who are half-lion, half-eagle and eight times the size of a lion. Known for their courage and ferocity, griffons were so feared by ancient people that rulers of Asian provinces used them to guard their vast treasures. Its airborne status lasted until 1952. In 1952, the division was reorganized into an infantry division and its headquarters was moved to its present location in Charlotte, North Carolina with all its subordinate units located in either North or South Carolina. In 1954, the division helped test a new method of rifle qualification known as "trainfire." In 1956, the division was selected to serve as a prototype for an Army Training Division. This meant reorganizing again to conduct basic and advanced individual training, should the division be called to active duty. In the 1960's, the division established its own drill sergeant school patterned after the active component school. In 1968, the 108th Division was restructured under its current brigade concept. During the Vietnam era, 108th Division soldiers during annual training were used to conduct interim training for soldiers waiting to begin basic training. In the 1980's the division developed an updated and more practical mobilization plan. During those same years the division began conducting basic training at Fort Jackson under new Mobilization Army Training Center and Provisional Training concepts. In January of 1991, more than 300 108th Division soldiers were called to active duty to support Operation Desert Storm, marking the first mobilization ever for members of the 108th Division. Division soldiers assisted in the retraining of individual soldiers at Fort Jackson who were called back to military duty. In late 1993, the 108th Division accepted the mission to pilot a new concept in Army training called Future Army Schools Twenty-first Century. This not only expanded the geographic size of the 108th Division to add the states of Georgia and Florida, but added 10 new U.S Army Reserve Forces Schools to the division's force structure. Those schools were later reorganized into functionally-aligned school brigades. This gave the 108th Division a new mission. While keeping the mission of conducting initial entry training for new soldiers entering the Army, it now conducts specialized skill training for thousands of soldiers, both officers and enlisted, in the southeastern part of the United States. In 1993, the Division was reorganized into two IET training brigades, a training support brigade, and four school brigades responsible for training IET soldiers missions and providing enlisted and officer courses within Region "C". The school brigades teach enlisted MOS producing courses, BNCOC and ANCOC enlisted advanced training courses, and in the case of one brigade, professional development courses to officers. This training is provided in both IDT and AT formats to the U.S. Army Reserves and National Guard across the four states comprising Region "C" In 1996 the 108th Division was assigned another completely new mission as part of a pilot project to conduct Reserve Officer Training Corps training at three colleges and universities in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. That pilot now has been expanded nationally and the 108th Division formally added a ROTC group to its organizational structure. In October of 1998, the 108th Division assumed command and control of the former 265th US Army Forces School in Puerto Rico, which added an 8th Brigade. In 2001, the ROTC units were officially reorganized into a brigade, bringing the division to a total force of nine brigades. In 2004, further reorganization of the Army Reserve resulted in the division assuming command of units in both Alabama and Mississippi. It is still unknown how this change will affect the division's force structure.
