Welcome to the 3rd ESC!
July 6, 2011
On behalf of the Soldiers, Civilians and Family members, I would like to welcome you to Fort Knox and your new command, the 3d Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) (ESC). We look forward to you joining the 3d ESC Team and I can promise your upcoming assignment will be professionally and personally rewarding.
If not already - you will be assigned a sponsor. Your sponsor will be available to answer any questions you may have prior to your arrival and to assist you with temporary lodging reservations if needed. While your sponsor will provide you with their contact information, you may also contact the company orderly room at DSN 464-8466/8460 COM (502) 642-8466/8460 with any questions.
The 3d ESC is one of the Army’s premier logistics command and control headquarters providing expertise in linking the strategic to tactical levels of logistics. Our mission is to provide sustainment and distribution management anywhere, at any time, in any environment. Just recently in January 2010, we deployed to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti for the HA/DR operation and formed the Joint Logistics Command Headquarters to support thousands of Haitians while sustaining US troops deployed to aid in the humanitarian effort.
While at Fort Knox, we execute our Training, Readiness and Authority (TRA) responsibilities of the 7th Sustainment Brigade at Fort Eustis, VA, the 49th Quartermaster Group at Fort Lee, VA and the 233rd Transportation Company (HET) here at Fort Knox. No matter where and when our Nation calls, the 3d ESC will continue a long and proud tradition of "Sustaining the Line!” in peace time and during armed conflict. You will now be an integral part of this proud tradition. For more information, you may also search the 3d ESC homepage at http://www.army.mil/3rdesc.
Our staff stands ready to assist you and feel free to contact us using the information in the "Contact Us” portion of our website. We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your time in Kentucky.
"Sustaining the Line!”
