1000 people gather for BRAC announcement

The first implementation of the 2005 Brac movement has taken place.

More than 1000 people came together at the Von Braun Center to welcome and honor Lieutenant General Kevin Campbell with the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command.

The headquarters will be based at Redstone Arsenal.

Lieutenant General Campbell is also the first three star general to be located in Huntsville.

Campbell said, "there's a legacy here of developing technologies that dates back into the 50's so it makes perfect since to take the Space and Missle Defense Command and place it right in the midst of all that technology development."

The Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville-Madison County hosted the event.
