"No matter where you are called to serve and no matter the distance between us, trust that I will do everything as your commander to ensure every Soldier's and civilian's needs and the needs of their families are met."In June, Lt.

The battalion's organizational colors were uncased in another ceremony at the end of June at its new home in support of the 3rd Infantry Division and Soldiers of Fort Stewart.Leadership at the 919th CBN changed hands in June as Lt. Col. Jarrett Moffitt took command from Lt. Col. Joel Greer in a ceremony officiated by Armer. At the ceremony, Moffitt addressed the Soldiers and civilians of the 919th CBN and MICC-Fort Bliss."You are a great team of people. Contracting is difficult and often thankless work," Moffitt said.

I cannot thank you enough for your efforts, and I look forward to serving with you."Headquartered at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, Texas, the MICC is made up of about 1,500 military and civilian members assigned to three contracting support brigades and a field directorate office throughout the United States who are responsible for contracting for Soldiers.
