TOBYHANNA ARMY DEPOT, PA. - Senior leaders and more than 60 personnel from across the command were here last week for an Army Materiel Command Depot Assessment Visit.

These visits enable command personnel to assess methods and practices at an installation to share lessons learned, address common issues and improve overall operations at the command's depots, arsenals, ammunition plants and other organizations.

The focus of the Tobyhanna assessment was on implementation and issues associated with the Logistics Modernization Program, but teams of personnel fanned out across the installation to learn more about the depot's operations in such areas as personnel, safety, contracting, infrastructure, financial management, partnering, depot maintenance and several other areas. Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, AMC commanding general, and Lt. Gen. James H. Pillsbury, AMC deputy commanding general, lead the assessment, which concluded with a detailed out brief. Participants included key personnel from major subordinate commands, as well as commanders and staffs of depots, arsenals and ammunition facilities.

"It was a great learning experience for all of us," said depot commander Col. Charles Gibson.
"The bottom line is that every AMC organization left here with ways to increase our command support to the warfighter, and in the end, that is what we are all about here at Tobyhanna and across the command."

Team members received briefings from depot subject matter experts and toured the operations areas to see firsthand depot efforts in such areas as safety, lean, construction and renovation and maintenance operations.

Tobyhanna Army Depot is the Defense Department's largest center for the repair, overhaul and fabrication of a wide variety of electronics systems and components, from tactical field radios to the ground terminals for the defense satellite communications network. Tobyhanna's missions support all branches of the Armed Forces.

About 5,600 personnel are employed at Tobyhanna, which is located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania.

Tobyhanna Army Depot is part of the U.S. Army CECOM Life Cycle Management Command. Headquartered at Fort Monmouth, N.J., the command's mission is to research, develop, acquire, field and sustain communications, command, control computer, intelligence, electronic warfare and sensors capabilities for the Armed Forces.
