Guardsmen with the Joint Task Force 71 relocate their offices to the Round Rock Armed Forces Reserve Center as part of their integration with the 136th Manuever Enhancement Brigade in order to better serve the citizens of FEMA Region VI in the event of a natural disaster or terrorist incident. The integration and move, conducted Sept. 17 through 21, will merge the two brigades into a single emergency response outfit, titled "Joint Task Force 71 (Maneuver Enhancement Brigade)."
