AMC senior leaders tour new home
February 24, 2011
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The U.S. Army Materiel Command's leadership took a survey of its nearly completed headquarters here, Feb 23.
Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, AMC's commanding general, Lt. Gen. James H. Pillsbury, AMC's deputy commanding general, Command Sergeant Major Jeffrey J. Mellinger, AMC senior non-commissioned officer, and several senior executive service members from around the command stepped into the doors of their new facility, many for the first time.
The tour was another check mark in AMC's BRAC process from Fort Belvoir, Va. to Redstone Arsenal, Ala. prompted by 2005 BRAC law. Personnel began relocating to the Tennessee Valley in 2006 and the command will be completely relocated by the summer of 2011.
Currently, AMC has approximately 768 personnel stationed at Redstone Arsenal awaiting the grand opening of their new six-story facility.
Also nearly completed is the adjoining three-story facility that will serve as the future home of the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command, one of AMC's major subordinate commands.
AMC impacts or has a presence in all 50 states and 155 countries world-wide to ensure the decisive edge of the warfighters in technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection and sustainment.
