MI to celebrate anniversaries later this month

Scout Reports

The 304th Military Intelligence Battalion spells out its birthday message to the MI Branch on Fort Huachuca’s Chaffee Parade Field.

On July 1, 2012, the Military Intelligence Branch will celebrate its 50-year anniversary, and the MI Corps will celebrate 25 years of existence. These were two critical developments in the evolution of Army Intelligence as a professional field.

Because Fort Huachuca has been the “Home of Military Intelligence” since the Intelligence Center and School first moved here in 1971, the commanding general is hosting a number of special events to commemorate this dual milestone. Everyone is invited to attend the various activities scheduled for June 27 – 29.

HT-JCOE to welcome new commander

The HUMINT Training Joint Center of Excellence will conduct the change-of-command and retirement ceremony for Col. John Szypko, HT-JCOE commander, on June 28, 8 – 9 a.m. on Brown Parade Field to publicly recognize him for his service to the U. S. Army. HT-JCOE will also welcome the incoming commander, Col. John Boucher.

The public is invited.

Motorists should expect disruptions in the flow of traffic around Brown Parade Field on the morning of the event and plan accordingly.


Public invited to join MI Corps run

Gregg Potter, commanding general, U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca, and his staff will lead the Military Intelligence Corps on a four-mile run on June 29 starting and ending at Warrior/Sentinel Field. All Friends of the MI Corps are invited to join the run and help celebrate MI’s 25/50th anniversaries.

The group will form up at 5:30 a.m., and the run will begin exactly at 6 a.m. There will be an optional turn-around at the one-mile point for civilian runners.


MI Soldier Heritage Walkway dedication set

The public is invited to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the MI Corps and the 50th Anniversary of the MI Branch at a Corps Founder Recognition Ceremony and Heritage Walkway Ribbon-Cutting on June 29, at 9 a.m. The walkway is located between Prosser Village and Rowe Hall, and parking is available at Friedman Hall, Rowe Hall and Sherr Barracks (next to the Air Park). A representative of the Governor’s Office will read a proclamation declaring Army Intelligence Day; retired Col. James Kelsey will give remarks, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the MI Soldier Heritage Walkway with 10 new interpretive panels highlighting Intelligence Soldiers throughout U.S. history.

Attendees should prepare for a warm event with limited shade and seating.

Refreshments will be served at the end of the walkway.
