310th HRSC departs for deployment for another tour Sgt. 1st Class Joel Quebec

Col. Janet Townley, the Director of the 310th Human Resources Sustainment Center, gets a hug from Christa Burns the Family Programs Director for the 81st Regional Support Command at the 310th deployment ceremony on June 19. The 310th will deploy to Kuwait sometime next month.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - In 2009-2010, the 310th Human Resources Sustainment Center became one of the first Reserve human resources units to deploy to a combat zone.

On June 20, just about one month shy of the third anniversary of their return, the 310th once again headed out for deployment, and will, once again, be working out of Camp Arifjan, Kuwait.

Part of their job will include casualty reporting, personnel accountability and postal operations. They will also coordinate soldiers' rest and recuperation leave.

The unit had their deployment ceremony on Fort Jackson on June 19. Only 50 members of the unit will deploy this time and they were referred to as the Family of Fifty due to the strong bonds that had been forged over the past year of preparations for the deployment.
The unit go through mobilization training at Fort Dix, N.J. and deploy to Kuwait sometime in July.

  • Accountability systems for soldiers and military personnel have always been in place whether it was a sign-in sheet or a large computerized database. For U.S. Army Japan and I Corps (FWD) soldiers it is no different. When the March 11 earthquake shook Japan, accountability became the top priority for USAR-J and I Corps (FWD). The command’s G-1 (Human Resources) team was directed to account for all Army personnel, Army Department of Defense employees and their families living in Japan.
  • Members of the 461st Human Resource Company said farewell to another one of their platoons March 9 at the Army Reserve Center in Decatur, Ga. The 5th Platoon leaves for mobilization training this month in preparation for a 10-month deployment in Afghanistan.
