    Commander's Corner


    The State of Our Command:
    “Army Strong”!

    On May 5, 2016, at the ATC Annual State of Command, I had the opportunity to address the entire workforce and reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, challenges and way ahead. This year’s theme, “Proud of Our Past, Focused on Our Future,” was vitally important as we prepare to celebrate 100 years of testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground, where over a billion rounds have been fired and millions of miles driven.

    My message to the workforce focused on the importance of what they do. It’s not often we get a chance to reconnect a Soldier with a piece of equipment that saved his or her life but that’s what we had the opportunity to do for SSgt. Thalamus Lewis. SSgt. Lewis, who was struck in his helmet while on patrol in theater and survived, was reconnected with that piece of equipment that saved his life. SSgt. Lewis had the opportunity to bring his family to ATC and meet the people that ensured that piece of equipment was safe, suitable and survivable. These efforts assure that the SSgt. Lewises and the rest of our Armed Forces have the best equipment available to engage our enemies around the world.
