VICKSBURG, Miss. -- The 412th Theater Engineer Command's new assistant inspector general was sworn in during a ceremony at the TEC headquarters, Feb. 12, 2012.

Maj. Gen. William M. Buckler Jr. administered the oath of office to Sgt. 1st Class Rosanna Grace, a Jackson Miss. native who has spent 31 years in the active Army and the Army Reserve combined.

"Being around as long as I have, I see a lot of things that I can help Soldiers and their family members with," said Grace "I want to be able to reach out to help them, and to better the command."

Grace holds two Military Occupational Specialties, one of which is Human Resources management. That skill set will benefit the I.G. shop since the team deals with a lot of personnel issues, according to Lt. Col. Marvin Bennett, the 412th TEC I.G.

Grace is also a licensed clinical nurse with the state of Mississippi.

This is her third Army Guard and Reserve assignment. Her last duty station was Fort Bliss Texas where she served with the 2291st Unit States Army Hospital as a Senior Human Resources Noncommissioned Officer. The 2291st backfilled the William Beaumont Army hospital.
