    The new location for the Post Office has gotten its official sendoff. Newly-renovated building 3710 is now the home of the U.S. Post Office and the Official Mail and Distribution Center. The renovation effort was a jointly funded project between the Garrison, the Army Materiel Command and the Missile Defense Agency. "We're very proud a team approach, a vision, could put this all together," Garrison commander Col. Bob Pastorelli said at the Sept. 9 ribbon-cutting ceremony. Workers from headquarters Army Materiel Command and the Missile Defense Agency are arriving at Redstone from the Washington, D.C. area through base realignment and closure.

  • Reserve Officer Finds His Field of Dreams

    Sep 18, 2009

    There's a yellow post-it note above Capt. Rob Dewberry's door that reads "What if' ..." It's been there since he first took over as the commander of the Garrison's Headquarters & Headquarters Company in 2004, becoming the first Reserve officer in the Army to command an active duty unit on an active duty post. Now, as Dewberry retires his position, the post-it note will come down and the new commander - Capt. Ryan Godbee - will set his own agenda and objectives for his command. But for Dewberry, that "What if' ..." post-it was a constant reminder to question all aspects of a situation, to look "outside the box" for solutions, and to find new and more effective ways to support Soldiers. "That's my own personal motto," Dewberry said. "It's about doing better, trying something new, and finding ways to help people. Being able to help people is an incredible feeling."

  • AMCOM Embraces Social Media Venues

    Sep 18, 2009

    The Aviation and Missile Command can now be found on two popular social media sites, Facebook and Twitter. "Social media is the most effective and least expensive tool to reach the largest audience possible," Ginger Stephens, AMCOM chief of Public and Congressional Affairs, said. "It allows us to quickly and efficiently update our troops, work force, and the general public on what's going on at the Aviation and Missile Command. It also serves as a great recruiting tool, showing the younger generation that the Army is up on the current trends and actually ahead of the curve." AMCOM's mission is quite simple: to get the Soldier what they need, before they need it, in order to do their job. This includes the fielding and sustainment of new or upgraded weapons and aviation platforms. "We recognize the importance of engaging on social media platforms, such as those where AMCOM is engaged," Lt. Col. Kevin Arata, chief of the newly established Army Public Affairs Online and Social Media Division, said. "This is how and where our audience gets much of their news."
