    Aug 16, 2012

    Team Anniston, it is with great difficulty that I write my final TRACKS column. It has been a whirlwind these last two years. As I said when I assumed command, Anniston Army Depot will continue to be the best in the business. With a huge Alabama connection, it was an honor to relocate to this great state. As my family and I began to settle in, we were immediately embraced by you and the community. I want to thank you for the support extended to me. As I move on, I have no doubt that you will do the same as another great Soldier, COL Brent Bolander takes the helm.

  • ANAD employees: Looking back at more than three decades of service

Also in 1977, 67 individuals who currently work at Anniston Army Depot began their federal careers.
