LOS ANGELES, CA. (December 12, 2018) –CPT Mike Ashburn, Hampton University Class of 2011, recently accepted Command of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 311th Expeditionary Sustainment Command(ESC), in Los Angeles, CA.
The 311th is an Army Reserve unit that Commands and control units, elements and activities to provide operational and tactical level combat service support (CSS) to forces across the spectrum of operations and provide distribution management to forces in coordination with the theater sustainment command.
The challenge of Command is a daunting task, but in the Army Reserve or National Guard, it can be extremely difficult because you don't have your soldiers at work every day. There is only one standard and that is the Army standard so Commanding in the Reserve/Guard is not for the faint of heart.
Best wishes to CPT Ashburn in this assignment.
