By Cameron Porter 405th Army Field Support Brigade

Two headquarters-level Army human resources and personnel leaders (center) visited Army Field Support Battalion-Mannheim and the battalion’s Army Prepositioned Stocks-2 worksite at Coleman Barracks in Mannheim, Germany, July 20.

Hong Miller, the director of the Army’s Civilian Human Resources Agency, and Roy Wallace, the Army’s assistant deputy chief of staff for personnel (G-1) at the Pentagon, visited the APS-2 site to gather information and ask questions about personnel requirements at the 405th Army Field Support Brigade’s newest APS-2 site, currently under construction in Powidz, Poland.

The 405th AFSB’s AFSBn-Mannheim will re-designate to AFSBn-Poland and assume mission command of the APS-2 site there in the coming months. Miller and Wallace also visited the APS-2 site in Poland following their stop in Mannheim.

The 405th AFSB’s AFSBn-Mannheim is responsible for the storage, security, maintenance and issue of nearly two Armored Brigade Combat Team’s worth of heavy armored vehicles and associated equipment as part of the Army Prepositioned Stock program. Coleman Worksite’s close proximity to the Autobahn as well as access to rail and barge loading facilities makes it an important element to U.S. Army Europe and Africa’s readiness posture.

The 405th AFSB is assigned to U.S. Army Sustainment Command and under the operational control of the 21st Theater Sustainment Command, U.S. Army Europe and Africa. The brigade is headquartered in Kaiserslautern, Germany, and provides materiel enterprise support to U.S. Forces throughout Europe and Africa – providing theater sustainment logistics; synchronizing acquisition, logistics and technology; and leveraging U.S. Army Materiel Command’s materiel enterprise to support joint forces.
