A ribbon cutting ceremony held outside a newly redesigned facility marked the transfer of the 1st Brigade Headquarters (Military Intelligence) 100th Division to Fort Huachuca on Jan. 23.
The 1st Brigade 100th Training Division is not new to Fort Huachuca. However, “It is the first time that our school house mission and our brigade headquarters were moved here [from Rhode Island],” Command Sgt. Maj. John Hilton said.
Before the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon, remarks were given by Col. Kevin Wulfhorst, Commander, 1st Bde. (MI) 100th Div. (OS) and Brig. Gen. Jason Walrath, commanding general 100th Division (Operations Support).
“The move of the 1st Brigade headquarters and its MI (Military Training) mission to Fort Huachuca involved complex changes that were identified and managed with great skill,” Wulfhorst said.
According to Wulfhorst, a number of occupational specialties are conducted for MI Soldiers at the U.S. Army of Intelligence Center of Excellence, which include training for: counter intelligence special agents, geospatial analysts, human intelligence collectors and intelligence analysts.
The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Maj. Gen. Robert Ashley and distinguished guests. Closing remarks were made by Ashley.
The 1st Bde. 100th DIV formally arrived on Fort Huachuca on Oct. 16, 2014 and continued training at the facility throughout its construction.
