The director of Installation Management Command-Sustainment toured Garrison services last week and said he was impressed.
Davis Tindoll visited Redstone Arsenal April 5 for an update on installation services and facilities. Although Tindoll’s office is located on the Arsenal, much of his time is spent traveling among the other nine installations he oversees.
“The Garrison, with limited resources, is accomplishing extraordinary achievements across the installation with the primary emphasis to support the Redstone workforce,” Tindoll said. “I’m proud of what each and every Garrison member does every day.”
Leaders from several Garrison directorates took part in the visit, showcasing activities that fall within Tindoll’s purview.
Tindoll toured the Arsenal’s airfield with its 7,200-foot runway where he received an operations overview.
He also visited the Redstone Flying Activity, operated by Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. The activity, with 12 aircraft, 34 instructors and a full-time mechanic, is one of two flying activities in the Army that offers flying lessons for various skill levels.
“We were proud to showcase our programs and let Mr. Tindoll see our people in action rather than on a slide deck,” Derrick Gould, director of MWR, said. “This opportunity showcased the dedication and professionalism of our workforce.”
During a tour of Fire Station 1, Tindoll got a close-up look at the engines, trucks and the communications center. He also visited the Aquatics Center, RV Park and the Links golf course.
In his role, Tindoll ensures garrisons deliver base operations services and he makes regular visits. His routine check-ins with the 10 garrisons provide an opportunity to review successes and challenges.
The 10 garrisons within IMCOM Directorate-Sustainment include Redstone; Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia; Detroit Arsenal, Michigan; Fort Belvoir, Virginia; Fort Meade, Maryland; Fort Detrick, Maryland; Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey; Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Virginia; Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois; and Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.
“It’s a great opportunity to highlight some of our Garrison workforce and their support to our customer-oriented programs,” Garrison Commander Col. Brian Cozine said.
