RED RIVER ARMY DEPOT, Texas -- Maj. Gen. Michael J. Terry, Commanding General, U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command spent a day becoming familiar with depot employees as well as the production facilities July 25. This was his first visit to RRAD since assuming command last month.

Also visiting with Terry were Command Sgt. Maj Clinton G. Hall, Deputy Commanding General Michael Viggato, Brian Butler, Director, Integrated Logistics Support Center and Capt. Cisco J. Fuller.

"I'm excited about being here and I'm really honored because we're a part of the same team," said Terry.

Terry began by presenting the Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff, Army Exceptional Organization Safety Award to members of Red River's safety team. The depot received garrison awards for its outstanding safety program.

"You've obtained a level of excellence that many don't obtain," said Terry. "It's great to come into a place and recognize someone for excellence. We want to be sure to share your safety story with the rest of LCMC family."
Following the award presentation the RRAD Command group began the command briefing. Many topics were discussed during the briefing including continuing the depot's Lean initiatives.

"Continuous improvement is a culture," he said. "I'll always be asking and seeing what we can do to improve how we do business."

The briefing was followed by a flyover to view vehicles and the vast acreage of the depot from above. Terry later toured the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle and Family of Tactical Vehicle production facilities. The group also toured the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle production facility as well as the Rubber Products Division before ending the tour.
