CAMP TAJI, Iraq - The Soldiers of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 541st Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 10th Sustainment Brigade officially claimed authority for their mission from the headquarters element of the 419th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 10th Sustainment Brigade during a ceremony held here Oct. 3, 2009.
The transfer of authority ceremony is the final step and clear symbol of the actual changing of unit authority.
"It is an honor and privilege to be standing here today taking over the mission from 419th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion," said Lt. Col. Paul Dismer, the commander of the 541st and Morgan City, La., native.
The 541st "Pacesetters" will be deployed here until August 2010.
"To the Soldiers now under the care of the 541st CSSB, welcome to the Pacesetter Battalion," said Dismer. "Our motto is 'Set the Pace,' and that is what we do. I already know from observing you in action that you are highly capable of continuing the legacy left by our predecessors, and I look forward to our challenges ahead."
The 419th has already begun their redeployment process, and will return to their home state of California by the end of October.
