    In 2000, Redstone Arsenal's Army Community Service was among the first to go through the Army's three-year accreditation process. Last week ACS became the first to receive its fourth three-year accreditation. "We are the first in the Department of the Army to pass for a fourth time with commendation - which means above and beyond," ACS director Sue Paddock said. "I'm really thrilled. It's very hard work. The ACS team met all of the standards a hundred percent. It's a total team effort with our community partnerships as well. A lot of community agencies played a part which contributed to our success."

  • Arsenal's Era of Mass Construction

    Nov 12, 2009

    Brick by brick, steel beam by steel beam, Redstone Arsenal is experiencing a fundamental change in its business landscape that is destined to affect its tenants and the entire Tennessee Valley community for years to come. A drive along the Arsenal's main thoroughfares offers plenty of evidence to the expanding footprint of Arsenal facilities. New buildings are going up, renovations are taking place and expansions are under way. Growth is in the air. No one knows that better than Joe Davis, director of the Garrison's Directorate of Public Works, and his busy staff, who are charged with managing, overseeing and maintaining the Arsenal's facilities. "We've got more going on here than I can ever remember," Davis said. "Besides everything we've got going on, other agencies - such as NASA and the FBI - also have construction projects on the Arsenal. Fiscal year 2009 has been a record setting year for construction."
