Tooele Army Depot hosted a visit Monday for Brig. Gen. Michelle M.T. Letcher, commander, Joint Munitions Command and Command Sgt. Maj. Brian Morrison, command sergeant major, JMC. This visit was part of a quarterly update of the munitions organic industrial base subordinate arsenals, depots, and ammunition plants that JMC manages.
Letcher met with commanders Col. Todd Burnley, TEAD, and Lt. Col. Dustin Bishop, Hawthorne Army Depot, along with Depot leadership, and toured various critical mission areas that actively sustain JMC's munitions priorities to support operations requirements, capabilities and readiness around the world.
"Tooele's recently opened South Area Demilitarization operations impressed upon me, this organization's work to maximize capacity while growing the right capabilities for our future force," said Letcher.
The day's discussions involved improving and modernizing current capabilities in managing the munitions life cycle to provide munitions readiness for complex Multi-Domain Operations.
"This visit gave us the opportunity to highlight our dedicated TEAD workforce with the JMC commander and demonstrate to the CG that we are executing her vision of providing ready, reliable, lethal munitions, to sustain global readiness for our nation," said Burnley.
The visit included update briefings from both TEAD and Hawthorne commanders. Hawthorne is a subordinate command of TEAD.
"It was a great opportunity to discuss Hawthorne [Depot] competencies and how they nest within the JMC mission and vision for readiness and future force requirements," said Bishop.
