    3rd Sustainment Brigade

    CAMP ARIFJAN, Kuwait - The 3rd Sustainment Brigade’s “Providers,” led by Col. Anthony Coston and Command Sgt. Maj. Lenard Summers, assumed responsibility of managing the sustainment and retrograde mission from the 108th Sustainment Brigade, an Illinois National Guard unit out of Chicago, as it completed its nine month tour in Kuwait.

    The 3rd Sustainment Brigade Headquarters’ notable history includes five combat deployments. Their arrival to Kuwait denotes the unit’s sixth deployment since 2002, but will be markedly different from its most recent when it headed support, sustainment and retrograde operations throughout three regions in Afghanistan.

    “The 3rd has provided support for service members in combat theaters time and time again. While Kuwait is not a combat zone, the sustainment mission is unique and ever changing,” said Brig. Gen. Daniel Mitchell, the deputy commanding general of the 1st Sustainment Command (Theater). “You are the Soldiers who provide the warfighter what they need to win and make our forces and our allies successful on the battlefield.”

    Coston said that his team is ready to begin their mission.

    “Each of our subordinate units wears a different patch, but we’re all united for a single purpose - to sustain the Soldiers,” said Coston. “For this mission in Kuwait we support a total force of active duty, National Guard and Reserve and other forces from across the globe.”

    The 3rd Sustainment Brigade is slated for a nine-month deployment.
