ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. - Anniston Defense Munitions Center recently welcomed Blue Grass Army Depot Commander Col. Brian Rogers March 9. This was Rogers' first tour of ADMC operations since presiding over ADMC's change of command in July 2010. The purpose of his visit was to "get a better understanding of ADMC operations and get to know the folks who make this great organization run," said Rogers.

The visit began with a briefing from Lt. Col. Randall DeLong, ADMC's commander, covering current and future ADMC operations. After the operations briefing, Rogers received a safety briefing and was taken to the Ammunition Limited Area.

While in the ALA, Rogers had the opportunity to shake hands and speak with ADMC employees.

"Meeting and talking with these employees in their workplace gave me a better understanding of their contributions to the mission and the steps they take to ensure success," said Rogers.

"The ADMC team was very eager to show our commanding officer the many and varied ways we support the warfighter. We were able to showcase our unique capabilities as well as our core competencies to ensure Rogers has a full understanding of the mission support we provide through his command at Blue Grass Army Depot to our headquarters at the Joint Munitions Command," said DeLong.
