EL PASO, Texas - Fort Bliss garrison commander has sent out guidance to soldiers not to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in uniform.
"The Office of General Counsel (OGC) Standards of Conduct Office has ruled that Army employees, including Soldiers, may not take the ALS awareness "Ice Bucket Challenge" in uniform - including military uniforms and other civilian uniforms clearly showing an Army relationship - i.e. Department of Army civilian police uniform, and post it on the internet. ALS Association is a national non-profit organization. As such, participating in this event is subject to concerns about implied endorsement. The OGC is the federal agency that has final say on appropriate ethical behavior for Army personnel," Col. Thomas Munsey posted on his official Facebook page.
