Are you a FCC licensed, U.S. amateur radio operator who is living or working abroad, anywhere overseas? If so, we'd like to invite you to join MARS. MARS is seeking individuals interested in military communications, disaster communications support to the Department of Defense, Department of Army, and the many other agencies supported by MARS. The primary focus of MARS activities today is centered around our capability to provide critical communications prior, during, and following disasters or contingencies for our customers. The historical practice of morale and welfare "MARSgrams" still continues, despite the advancement of other technologies, but is now a secondary function to other MARS missions. To learn more about the Army MARS program, read Army MARS publication AM-1, This is Army MARS. Please contact me ( ) or HQ, Army MARS if you are interested. Here is the MARS application form.
