ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Lt. Gen. Patricia McQuistion, deputy to the commanding general for the U.S. Army Materiel Command, visited Anniston Army Depot and two of its tenant organizations, the Anniston Munitions Center and DLA Distribution Anniston June 11. This was her first visit to the installation since assuming her current role in August 2012.

The purpose of the DCG's visit was to view the workforce at Anniston Army Depot, see the work being performed to overhaul and repair some of the Army's weapons systems and to view the coordination in place between the installation and DLA Distribution Anniston, a tenant on the depot.

"While this was her first visit in her current position, she left thoroughly impressed with the facilities visited and the workforce that she saw and met," said Depot Commander Col. Brent Bolander. "Everyone did an extraordinary job of relaying to her that our ultimate mission is to provide outstanding support to America's war fighters."

McQuistion toured the depot's Combat Vehicle Repair Facility, where employees overhaul combat vehicles, such as the M1A1 main battle tank, M9ACE, Paladin, and more.

Stops also took her to the Small Arms Repair Facility, a one-stop shop for the repair, rebuild, overhaul, testing, and storage of small arms weapons for the Department of Defense; General Dynamics Land Systems, a partner of ANAD; the Reciprocating Drive Train Facility; the Turbine Engine Facility; and ANMC's Multiple Launch Rocket System Facility.
