New command for D.J. Dore
CHARLOTTE · June 18, 2019 – Congratulations to D.J. Dore, an attorney in Durham with our Veterans Law Project, for assuming command of Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 108th Training Command (Initial Entry Training), U.S. Army Reserve.
In his new role, Captain Dore will have about 200 active duty and reserve soldiers under his authority. HHC forms the command staff for Major General Kate Leahy, Commanding General of the 108th Training Command. The command supports basic training (new recruits) and cadet training (ROTC and U.S. Military Academy) and comprises more than 9,000 soldiers throughout the United States. D.J. assumed command during a ceremony June 8 in Charlotte attended by his wife, parents, grandmother and the head of our Durham office, Gina Reyman.
"I'm honored to support such an important mission," D.J. said. "The 108th Training Command literally builds the foundation of our all-volunteer Army by transforming citizens into the next generation of enlisted and officer leaders. It's also a reminder of the importance of our work at the Veterans Law Project since each one of our clients was at one time a new recruit eager to serve. I'm thankful to Legal Aid for supporting me and giving me the opportunity to do meaningful work with great colleagues."
