KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan--The AFSBn-Kandahar, 401st Army Field Support Brigade hosted the transfer of authority ceremony for the 4th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, here, July 25.

The ceremony marked the official transfer of command for the Joint Sustainment Command Afghanistan from the 184th ESC, which is part of the Mississippi National Guard. JSC-A’s mission is to provide logistics and sustainment capabilities for all of U.S and coalition forces in Afghanistan. The joint sustainment command consists of more than 43,000 soldiers, Marines, airmen, sailors and civilians who are responsible for delivering everything from beans, to bullets, to mail throughout Afghanistan.

The ceremony was the culmination of a two day commander’s conference, also hosted by the battalion, where leaders from across the command came to discuss current and future logistical and sustainment needs.

“It’s a great opportunity to have leadership in one place and to gather those lessons learned from across the CJOA [coalition joint operations area].” said 4th Battalion commander, Lt. Col. Garry Bush.

The 184th ESC will return home to Mississippi after serving in Afghanistan since October 2010.
