79th SSC PAO
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Soldiers of the newly standing 79th Sustainment Support Command completed their first battle training assembly, with Deputy Commanding General William D. Frink there to meet with Soldiers and staff members.
The 79th is a unique two-star command that will ultimately be responsible for more than 20,000 troops across a 26-state region. It has been active since Dec. 1, 2009, but just received the “79th” designation, from the former 79th Infantry Division this month.
Although the unit is now officially established, a public activation ceremony will not take place until August 2010.
