According to Marriott the success of the program has lead to the development of similar opportunities at Training and Doctrine Command and the Army Contracting Command.
"You all are the future of AMC and the Army. You're the best of the best and I charge each of you with fulfilling the mission of AMC," said Marriott.
Marriott went on to discuss the successes and challenges of the program with both former and current Fellows.
On April 23, Marriott concluded his visit with meetings at the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce where he met with local leaders and chamber members regarding AMC's 2005 Base Realignment and Closure move to Redstone.
Appointed to the Senior Executive Service in July 2005, Marriott is responsible for staff supervision and program management of AMC's G-1 and has oversight the LOGTECH program, the AMC Fellows Program and Human Capital Strategic Planning for BRAC.
