TRAINING TOGETHER - The Salina husband and wife team pt Staff Sgts. Jerry and Linda Army Reserve Photo Moore take annual training together at Fort Irwin, Calif. Army Reserve training won't separate Salina husband, wife FORT.IRWIN, Calif. - Annual Army Reserve training often separates families for the two-week period. But that's not the case with Jerry and Linda Moore of Salina, Kan. When it comes time for training by the 425th Transportation Control Company, which operates out of Salina, they just pack up their equipment and take off together. Jerry, a staff sergeant, is a truck driver with the 425th. Linda, also a staff sergeant, works in supply. They participated in the joint training exercise, "Gallant Eagle 80," which ended last weekend at Fort Irwin. During the exercise, Jerry hauled bulk loads of fuel to supply the 1st Infantry Division from Fort Riley, Kan. He was in the active Army and has been a Reservist the past four years. Linda joined the Army Reserve a year ago after completing a three-year active duty tour at Fort ROey. Her job during the exercise was to assure laundry services and sanitary supplies, and order repairs for equipment. The Moores don't see much of one another during two-week training. Their jobs keep them apart. They occasionally can have lunch together, and usually have a couple of hours together in the evening. In civilian life, Jerry is employed by Beech Aircraft at Salina and Linda works for the Kansas Department of Transportation. The 425th Transportation Control Company is part of the 89th U.S. Army Reserve Command, headquartered in Wichita, Kan.
