REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- AMCOM commander Maj. Gen. Jim Rogers encouraged teamwork during his first town hall meeting at the Aviation and Missile Command.

"It's about all of us working together as a team," he said Nov. 9 in the filled 650-seat Bob Jones Auditorium.

Rogers told the AMCOM workers to try to reduce energy consumption by using common sense; and to stay safe and report unsafe practices.

Redstone's continued growth brings challenges, particularly at the gates, according to the general. The Defense Department mandates that guards look at identification cards of incoming motorists, which may mean potential delays at the gates during peak traffic times.

"What we're trying to do is balance between making sure we maintain a secure post and convenience," Rogers said.

He told the workers that officials are looking at ways to maintain security while getting people through the gates faster as Redstone continues to grow.

He outlined the command's priorities and answered questions from the work force. He encouraged the workers to focus on supporting the war fighter.

"I appreciate everything you do," Rogers said.
