As I wrote in last year's Martin Luther King, Jr.’s holiday message, and worth repeating, is we will mark his birthday by commemorating his life and belief in justice, universal equality and a color-blind society. Dr. King, through faith, perseverance, and reason, changed the course of our Nation forever. He lived by the measure "What are you doing for others?" -- an ideal that resonates with our Army values and Warrior Ethos.

Since 1994, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day) has been set aside as a national day of service (http://mlkday.gov). It also is part of United We Serve, President Obama’s national call to Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

While the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians who shared an autumn harvest feast in 1621 started the modern American Thanksgiving tradition, the day's meaning reaches far beyond recognition of a good crop.

On 11 November, the Nation will stop to pay tribute to our 23 million living veterans. Having served the United States in peace and in war, protecting our freedoms, our prosperity and the future for the generations yet to come, our veterans are owed the utmost respect and our deepest gratitude. Next to the Constitution, no institution has been as fundamental to the United States as the Armed Forces.

It is time to start closing redundant Army Knowledge Online (AKO) email accounts for Army users of DoD Enterprise Email (EE).

One outcome driving the Army EE cost benefit analysis was the elimination of redundant email accounts and storage. As of today, there are over 534K provisioned DoD EE accounts (Army, DISA, JS, and EUCOM).

I have directed our team to begin the deactivation of AKO email accounts for 430K Army users of DoD EE by October 1, 2012. These users are a specific subset of the total AKO DoD EE users. We will continue to deactivate AKO email accounts as users migrate to DoD EE.
