AAAA Joseph P. Cribbins Training, Equipping and Sustainment Symposium January 20-22, 2021 is Cancelled.

Unfortunately, the situation with COVID19 has continued to escalate and now makes it impossible to safely and responsibly protect our members and families

The 2021 Cribbins event will take place November 15-17.
The 2022 Cribbins is scheduled for Nov 14-16.
And the 2023 event will be Nov 13-15.

If you had already registered and reserved a hotel room through the AAAA website a refund will be sent and the hotel room will be cancelled with no penalties. Many of you chose to make your own hotel reservations outside of the AAAA options for those we are not able to cancel, you will need to do so on your own.

We will be sending separate guidance/opportunities out to our exhibitors and sponsors.

We recognize the impact this has on all of our awardees and their families. We will make sure you are all appropriately honored at a later date.

Please also keep in mind the thousands of hotel workers, food and beverage, wait staff, and other hourly civilian support personnel and their families who are all being severely impacted across the country by cancellations like ours.

We will get through all this and as the vaccine rolls out over the next few weeks and months we look forward to seeing you at another AAAA event during 2021.

Don’t forget the AAAA Annual Summit is April 21-23, 2021. Hope to see you there!

Above the Best!

MG Jeff Schloesser, U.S. Army, Retired
34th President, AAAA

Sustainment and Ensuring Army Survivability

President's Cockpit / By MG Jeff Schloesser, Ret.  

As a young combat engineer and later as an Army Aviator, I dwelled in a world focused on tactics, maneuver, and taking the fight to the enemy. Maintenance and sustainment were important to me, but it was often somebody else’s problem.

What a rude awakening I got as a new battalion commander. Sustainment was MY responsibility, and I had lots to learn!  Read More
