Richard Hubbard. The support battalion also received Command Sgt. Maj. Nicol Williams as its top noncommissioned officer.

The 916th Support Brigade replicates a deployed theater of operations planning and executing Theater Sustainment Command through Sustainment Brigade levels of support for rotational units that train at the National Training Center. The 916th conducts theater opening, reception, staging and onward movement of forces, distribution, sustainment, reconstitution, and redeployment. It also provides mission command for rotational echelons-above-brigade sustainment units. It plans and executes rotary wing aviation operations providing the NTC headquarters and NTC units with general support air movements, dignitary transports, and air medical evacuations. The aviation mission also includes portraying tactical aviation recon, attack, assault and lift in support of training. The brigade provides trained and ready forces for worldwide contingency operations, and furthers its commitment in enhancing the quality of life for Soldiers, Families, and civilians.
