Approximately 100 Soldiers of the 536th Support Maintenance Company were reunited with family and friends after a nine-month deployment to various locations throughout U.S. Central Command.
During their tenure with CENTCOM, the 536th SMC supported over 56 external units completing more than 12,000 work orders resulting in roughly 140,000 man-hours worked. The company impacted the mission by fixing combat-power equipment raising operational readiness by 11 percent and saving the Army approximately $500,000 in the process.
"It was an overwhelming success for the 536th Support Maintenance Company," said Lt. Col. James Collazo, commander of the 524th CSSB. "We are incredibly proud of all that they accomplished."
