HUNTSVILLE Ala. (WHNT) – July 17 marked the official 25th anniversary of the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), but the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville celebrated all week. Friday was the grand finale honoring the AMCOM workforce, current and past.
Some of AMCOM’s most recent thoughts are now frozen in time thanks in part to a time capsule. Major General Todd Royar said this will help ensure continued investment in AMCOM’s future.
“First and foremost, it really comes down to making sure we invest in our people. If we have the opportunity to make sure they have the right technical skills, the right leadership training, whatever the challenges of tomorrow, they will make the best decisions,” Royer said.
Everything from coins and diagnostic equipment from the military to letters from senior command leadership and COVID-19 test kits were placed in a small wooden box. All items symbolize the most common US Army tools and national events of 2022.
The silver anniversary ended with certificates given to the winners of the challenges organized this week for workers and their loved ones, as well as a traditional cup of cake.
The capsule will be buried on the grounds of the arsenal and will be opened in 25 years.
