Laura Stultz felt “out of the loop” living far from Army posts during her husband’s Reserve deployments.
That feeling helped motivate Stultz, wife of Lt. Gen. Jack Stultz, commander of the Reserve, to champion a network of facilities across the country that brings resources for Army programs closer to remote military families.

The Reserve officially opened its fourth Army Strong Community Center in Oregon City, Ore., on May 14, 2011, with a ceremony attended by the Stultzes and more than 600 soldiers, family members and com- munity activists.
