More Army commands coming to Alabama
The Army announced today the decision to relocate Headquarters, Army Contracting Command and Headquarters, Expeditionary Contracting Command from Fort Belvoir, Va., to Redstone Arsenal. These force structure actions will result in the reassignment of 79 soldiers and 234 civilians to Redstone Arsenal. The move is expected to be completed in August 2011.
From Sen. Jeff Sessions today:
“I am delighted with the Army’s announcement to relocate the Army Contracting Command and Headquarters to Redstone Arsenal. The relocation, which will create over 300 new positions at Redstone, is an important decision for the Army, and it further proves that Alabama maintains a strong position in our national defense. This move is the result of great leadership at Redstone, and it’s great to see it become a reality. I look forward to working with the new leadership and command, and on behalf of the Huntsville community, we say welcome.”
