On June 28, 2017, Colonel Harry R. Culclasure, Project Manager, Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP), hosted the Logistics Modernization Program (LMP) Change of Charter Ceremony at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ. In attendance were Mr. Nathan Godwin, Army Materiel Command (AMC) Deputy G-3/4 Operations & Logistics; Brigadier General Patrick Burden, Program Executive Officer for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS); Brigadier General Alfred F. Abramson III, Commanding General, Picatinny Arsenal; Mr. Anthony J. Sebasto, Executive Director, Enterprise and System Integration Center; U.S. Army Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center; and guests from AMC, Communications-Electronics Command, the AESIP Project Management Office, and the LMP Product Management Office. During the ceremony, Colonel Culclasure transitioned the LMP charter from Lieutenant Colonel Robert M. Williams to Lieutenant Colonel Michael N. Parent.
"Command is among the most important elements of our Army's organization and how we support Soldiers every day," said Colonel Culclasure during the ceremony. "No function is more meaningful. No position is more robust." Lieutenant Colonel Parent will now lead the LMP as it enters its next chapter in Defense Information Systems Agency migration, fulfilling financial auditability requirements, sustainment modernization work efforts, and planning future work with AMC. Lieutenant Colonel Parent joins the LMP from the Defense Logistics Agency and brings with him experience as both an Armor Officer, Supply and Services Officer, as well as serving as a member of the Army Acquisition Corps.
In his closing remarks, Colonel Culclasure shared his well wishes for Lieutenant Colonel Williams and his wife on his next journey at the Dwight D. Eisenhower School of National Security. Colonel Culclasure also expressed his confidence in Lieutenant Colonel Parent, knowing he will make the LMP his own and that he "will quickly see how special this program and team are." Congratulations Lieutenant Colonel Parent and we welcome you and your family to the PEO EIS family.
