Working to Keep Corpus Christi Army Depot Busy

Last week, I attended the House Depot Caucus’ annual breakfast in the Capitol. I spoke with General Gustave Perna, Commander of the United States U.S. Army Materiel Command also known as the Organic Industrial Base (OIB). General Perna assured me the Army is committed to maintaining its readiness and a key component of the OIB is the Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD). I also met with Lt. Gen Aundre Piggee, Deputy Chief of Staff, G-4 and his Principal Deputy, Mr. Bill Moore. Mr. Moore had just returned from a visit to CCAD last week. Both stressed how important CCAD is to the overall mission of the OIB and assured me of their continued support of CCAD and the important role it plays in ensuring the readiness and operational capability of our warfighters.
Later that day, I also visited with Maj General Douglas Gabram, Commanding General, U.S. Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), in my office. Maj General Gabram shared with me plans to keep CCAD busy for the foreseeable future. I’m honored to represent the men and women at CCAD who do so much day in and day out to support our warfighters.
