Mark Smith and Patrick Holmes may oversee Redstone Arsenal's energy consumption for the Garrison, but everyone has a role to play in ensuring the installation is energy efficient.

October is National Energy Action Month, a time set aside each year to remind individuals how important it is to be aware of their energy use and to work to reduce consumption. This year's theme is "Energy Resilience Enables Army Readiness." Holmes and Smith work toward that end every day, with one simple mission.
