  • Army Reserve Day
    April 23, 2018

    Governor Tom Wolfe officially recognizes the 110th Anniversary of our PA Army Reserve proclaiming April 23rd, 2018 “Army Reserve Day”.  In recognition of this historic day, The PAACC Military Relations Committee would like to honor our own local reserve unit the 316th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) (ESC).  The 316th is a model for future military operations around the world with a deployment mission to provide command and control of all sustainment forces in an operational theater. While in Iraq (August 2007-June 2008), the 316th ESC, composed of more than 20,000 sustainment Soldiers, synchronized and provided logistical support to U.S. units (165,000), Multi-National Coalition partners and Iraqi Forces in support of all operations. That support translated into everything from bullets to beans, fuel to maintenance parts and coordinating certain human resource services (liaison teams, personnel replacements, finance)) Command.  The 316th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) (ESC), is one of six general officer sustainment commands in the Army Reserve. It has command and control of more than 10,000 Army Reserve Soldiers throughout the northeastern United States.
