Staff Sgt. Luis Jordan is a schools/ammunition noncommissioned officer with the Headquarters, Expeditionary Contracting Command. Prior to his arrival to Fort Belvoir, Va., Jordan served as the G3 Training/Ammunition NCO at Fort Carson, Colo.
Once on board, Jordan immediately started working as the ECC School NCO, and established a process for placing Soldiers into their required training.
"Being part of a new organization is exciting," said Jordan, an 18-year veteran. "We're new in the eyes of most Soldiers. That gives us the opportunity to lay a firm foundation for others to follow," said the former Paratrooper.
Impressed by the opportunities of learning a new career field, Jordan was anxious from the onset to jump in and have a direct impact on the Soldiers in ECC and those they support.
Jordan recently established the Battle Staff Order of Merit List for the 51C's to attend the appropriate training and schools. He also established the order of merit lists for military training to ensure that all training requirements are met.
Jordan is also a great athlete and was recently invited to compete in the State Games of America a prestigious event held once a year but could not attend. Jordan did get to participate in the State Games of the West in July 2008 and that lead to his recent participation at the next level where he won the Gold and Bronze medal in racquetball. Jordan hopes to represent
Headquarters, ECC at this year's games and bring home the gold.
A valued member of the ECC headquarters, Jordan strives to provide the Contacting Warfighter the best support possible.
"The Contracting Warfighter is at the tip of the spear, and it is truly an honor to serve such professionals," said the native New Yorker.
Jordan has been instrumental in the development of the ECC Training Program, and looks forward to future challenges.
