BRAC update: Major initiatives underway

On Tuesday, June 26 the first implementation of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Activity officially begins as the community welcomes the first three-star general, and his three-star command, to be based on Redstone Arsenal.

A capacity crowd of more than 1,000 will officially welcome Lt. Gen. Kevin Campbell and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command headquarters to Redstone Arsenal at a special luncheon hosted by the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County.

Lt. Gen. Kevin Campbell is the keynote speaker at the luncheon, which will be held at the Von Braun Center North Hall from 11:15 a.m.-1 p.m.

The SMDC relocation marks the first major initiative under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Activity.

Lt. Gen. Kevin Campbell will "uncase" the SMDC flag in a morning ceremony on the Arsenal.

The Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County is inviting the community to the "Hail to SMDC" luncheon event that will follow the official uncasing ceremony.
