BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The U.S. Army Reserve's 321st Sustainment Brigade welcomed new leadership Saturday.
The 321st out of Baton Rouge is responsible for about 2,000 soldiers. Their mission is to provide mission command for combat support, meaning they help manage the flow of soldiers and supplies in battle. A changing of command ceremony was held Saturday, November 19 to welcome a new commander, who will accompany the brigade on their next deployment.
"For many generations, soldiers have defended Old Glory that we see here today at a price of dying on the battlefield to ensure our freedom. Our service today, ladies and gentlemen, soldiers of the 321st, to defend freedom and to remain sustainers and defenders of the war fighters is greater than ever before," said Col. Cynthia Cook.
The incoming commander is Col. Cynthia E. Cook. She is taking over for Col. Kent J. Goff.
