Divisional Headquarters Hosts Southern Territory Leaders for Annual Review

Jackson, MS – Each year the Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi Division welcomes several members of the Southern Territory leadership to the division for a command annual review or C.A.R. This is chance for them to visit some of our local corps (they wanted to see how Baton Rouge was doing since August’s severe flooding) and with our officers here at Divisional Headquarters.

We also host a brunch which gives our employees a chance to meet them and hear from these officers. This year’s C.A.R. meetings were titled, “Activating Leadership to Mobilized.” This year’s team to visit the ALM Division included: Colonels Brad & Heidi Bailey, Lt. Colonel Bill Mockabee, Lt. Colonels Jim & Karol Seiler, and Major Sheila Lanier.
