NEW COMMANDER FOR LOCAL ARMY COMMAND AT PORT OF BEAUMONT

 

BEAUMONT – On Thursday June 13, 2013 at 10:00 a.m., Lieutenant Colonel Michael J. Arnold will hand over command of the 842nd Transportation Battalion to Lieutenant Colonel Darrin M. Bowser.  The ceremony will be held at the 842nd Transportation Battalion Headquarters located inside the Port of Beaumont.

 

Lieutenant Colonel Arnold has been in command for the past two years and is leaving to accept a new assignment at the Headquarters Second Infantry Division in Korea.  Lieutenant Colonel Bowser recently arrived from Fort Bliss,  Texas where he was the director of logistics for Joint Task Force North.   

 

The 842nd Transportation Battalion is part of the Army’s Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command.  This command has been at the forefront of our nation since September 11, 2001,  serving to deploy and redeploy military units overseas for combat operations.  In the past two years, the command has been equally busy receiving equipment returning from war that will be refurbished and reset to meet any future contingency operations for our nation.  The unit contracts with commercial rail and truck activities to move military cargo back to home stations and army depots.  The unit is comprised of military personnel and civilian employees and works with the Port of Beaumont and commercial stevedores to get the job done.

 

For more information, contact 842nd Transportation Battalion, Lieutenant Commander Frank Maurer,

409-784-3816.
