“Hunter, your leadership and presence for our Soldiers has been nothing short of impressive. Thank you for being an integral part of this Redstone team for the past two years,” said Martin.
Wilson expressed his appreciation to a wide variety of AMCOM staff and leaders, as well as those in attendance at the ceremony.
“The knowledge that I had this incredible support structure behind me made this job so much easier than you could ever know,” said Wilson. “To the HHC team: you guys are incredible and truly a bedrock of Redstone Arsenal. This day should be used to recognize your greatness and your contributions to the Redstone team.”
Martin welcomed Myles, who spent the last year working in the G-3 of Army Contracting Command, by saying [AMCOM] is honored and excited to have him lead this team of professionals.

Smith, I want to say thank you for this opportunity,” said Myles. “To my AMCOM team, my new family, I appreciate the confidence in my ability to serve as your new HHC AMCOM commander. I am honored. I will lead by example, and listen and make the appropriate decisions when necessary and lay the structure that is committed to the Army standards. Taking care of our force is my top priority.”
